Minor Artifacts are magical items created by wizards and alchemists. Their appearance is often crude and they are common in Ashan. Even if their enchantments are relatively weak, they can make the difference between victory and defeat.
Major Artifacts have been created by master craftsmen. They are often unique pieces, created at the request of a wealthy client. They are not only useful, but also beautiful objects. They are much rarer than Minor Artifacts, and often found in the possession of nobles and chieftains.
Relics are among the most powerful artifacts found on Ashan. They are ancient items of power from lost civilizations, or the possessions of legendary heroes from ages past. Possessing a Relic can transform a mere adventurer into a full-fledged Hero.
