Subj: New Artifacts!

We have taken all your artifact suggestions into consideration, mulled over them and decided that some of those ideas were pretty damn awesome. Thus, we are very proud to announce 14 new artifacts that have just been released in Midkemia:

Great Rune of Evasion: 750 credits
- This artifact reduces damage from denizen damage by 15%.

Emblem of the Plentiful: 250 cr
- This artifact increases your maximum mana/faith/guile by 5%.

Emblem of the Abundant: 500 cr
- This artifact increases your maximum mana/faith/guile by 10%.

Emblem of the Endless Bounty: 1000 cr
- This artifact increases your maximum mana/faith/guile by 15%.

Rune of the Agile Hand: 350 credits
- Increases weapon speed by 3%.

Rune of the Swift Blade: 700 credits
- Increases weapon speed by 6%.

Rune of the Slashing Wind: 1400 credits
- Increases weapon speed by 10%.

Rune of Vital Blasting: 500 cr
- Level 2 Vernal Blasting Rune (1.75% resource, 1 faith, 1 guile on crit)

Rune of Voracious Blasting: 1000 cr
- Level 3 Vernal Blasting Rune (2.5% resource, 2 faith, 2 guile on crit)

Altar of Resurrection: 2500 credits
- Allows you to ALTAR PLACE this artifact in a room and, upon death, you
will be resurrected here after visiting the Halls instead of your usual
respawn point. You may ALTAR RECALL to recall the artifact to your
inventory and change the place. You can only ALTAR PLACE once per RL day.

Glyph of Photographic Memory: 1000 credits
- This artifact increased the maximum number of rifts a magician can
memorize by 5.

Silban's Fertilizing Pouch: 500 credits
- At the cost of 50 plant harvest charges, you can CULTIVATE to spawn a
random plant appropriate to the environment you are in. This plant will
spawn only if it is not already growing there. NOTE: THIS DOES NOT WORK
IN LAKE MORAELIN.

Master Teller's Book of Tales: 500 credits
- This legendary book of tales allows you to use the STORYTELL ability and
weave your own enchanting stories. If you are already a skilled
performance user, this book will reduce your STORYTELL cooldown to one
third, allowing you to perform more often.

Weapon Chain: 400 credits
- This artifact allows you to GRIP your weapons, protecting you from being
disarmed. This works just like Arms skill Grip and does not stack with it.

We may have more in the works, so stay tuned and enjoy these new releases! As always, if you find anything not working properly with these, please be sure to BUG it.

Also, I'd like to take the time to point out that these new artifacts have been added into the pool for the Caches of Ruthia's Bounty! If you're feeling like Lady Luck is on your side, you might have the opportunity to get some of these for far below the asking price!

Penned by my hand on the 4th of Dzanin, in the year 54.
