I’ll be the first to tell you that nothing is more boring than a +1 longsword or that humor based artifacts are a bad idea in anything other than a humor driven campaign. And yet I’m a sucker for puns. Here are three new Artifacts that are all in the mind. Feel free to use them (or not) as suits your campaign. Continue reading
Generally speaking, artifacts need to have a form related to their function. Keys for Songs of Opening, zip drives for Computer Use skill, that sort of thing.
