Add a townie that can identify items. Perhaps use the
Learned Sage.

As with some of my other interface improvement
requests, NPCs like the Learned Sage could open a chat
menu including items for learning Literacy or
identifying items.

    This would definitely be a nice feature. One of the old
    versions of Tyrant had this, and it was great (when the game
    generated *had* one of the identifying characters, anyway.) In
    a lot of roguelikes, this is a pretty standard feature. It would
    be especially nice to know what all those rings and amulets
    do...

    Hey there,

    there is now a jeweller in the tutorial inn who identifies
    rings and amulets for 2 gold. They say that there are even
    roaming jewellers that identify for 1 gold, but those
    non-syndicated guys are a rare find.
