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 ...
