Artifacts, with their detailed histories and powerful
effects, are personal things, so it makes
sense that the DM should create artifacts unique
to an individual campaign.
In fact, that’s just what the DM should do.
Every campaign should have artifacts that are truly unique to it, thereby ensuring that the DM’s world is different from every other campaign out there.
Great idea, the DM may say, but how do I do it?
Don’t worry. It’s really not that hard.
By following a few simple guidelines, DMs discover that artifacts practically create themselves.
