Well, while you guys have convinced to drop my original idea, of a player having a high chance (1/6 ish?) to find a VERY weak magical artefact every time he traded in a wyrdstone (one chance per game, with 5/6 chance of some mundane item, like a setting-based item or a lucky charm).  However, I still like the idea of a higher rate finding artefacts than, say, Sartosa or Mordheim proper.  Also, if the list is so long, we can say that no campaign will have more than one of the same artefact.  Any further rolls of the same artefact are rerolled. (Adds a Roleplay touch, I think. In future campaigns, you can track where the artefact changes hands).

Which begs the question, this IS the Lesser Magical Artefact chart, right? If some of them seem to strong, we can bump them up to the Greater Mag. Artefact list.

Don't you need to roll six 6's to get an artefact in MOrdheim?

That seemed ok.

Well, I really like the idea of only one of each type of artifacts and make a long lesser list and a short more powerful list of artifacts.

These items should not be game altering in anyway, but rather good.

This brings us to exploration which I'll open up a thread for.

Agreed, a long 'Lesser Artefact' list (most of which aren't much stronger than a skill), and 6 Greater Artefacts.

I've never built an Exploration chart with Lesser Artefacts, but I know they show up in both Lustria, Relics (and I think Khemri too), so there several models to look at.

just as an idea my group uses a rule for minor artefacts that a player who wins the scen (whatever it is) finds an artefact on a 6 (d6 roll of course)

we really don't get to many of them that way (and we allow a couple of scenario's that have them as loot), it also has the bonus of stopping players just routing when they can as much because of the slight chance to get one

That's a good idea. I think we should stick with it, as it is only a 6 it will not make one warband overly powerful and make the winners win all the more, good idea.

I still think we should have a few of them on the exploration table.
