Cheats are powerful devices that allow for unimaginable power that normal items cannot provide.
Cheats are often used for either beta testing a quest, or as a reward to players who find a very difficult secret. For the purpose of beta testing, if Beta Testers get stuck, the cheats can be enabled at a point where the player is no longer stuck.
