Dropping Weekly Artifacts

Creating a new and inventive artifact each week takes me too much time, and I feel like the items are below my normal creative standards. I had not done any D&D 4e artifacts when I came up with the idea, and I didn’t realize how formulaic they were. It’s just not exciting for me to ...

I Missed Again!

I missed the Artiface Tuesday post for this week. Again! I’m sorry to have done this, but life has caught up to me now that school has started up.

Artifact Tuesday: Spear of the Elven Forests

This is a day late, but not a dollar short. This is a D&D 4th Edition artifact complete with stats and powers. This is the first time I’ve done this in the D&D 4th Edition system, so bear with me if it’s a little wonky. I’ve only made full-blown artifacts in 2nd and 3rd edition ...

Artifact Tuesday: The One Wing

I thought of this when I got up this morning and I couldn’t resist the pun of the title. However, the item is not punny. I just couldn’t bring myself to go that far with it. The One Wing is a single gossamer faerie wing (similar to a the wing of a dragonfly) that will ...
