American Artifacts

Sorry about missing a couple of weeks–other commitments, plague, pestilence, that kind of things. I’ll try not to let it happen again (much). I’m going to ease back into things with a couple of easy tables of random magical items that you can base your next story around. Conveniently enough, Hex produces two American Artifacts PDFs, each with 20 items of that type. Start out by rolling a d20. ON a roll of 10 or less, roll on the table for American Artifacts. On a roll of 11 or more, roll on the table for American Artifacts 2. Once you’ve determined which item you’ll be using, all you have to do is buy the PDF, read up on it, and figure out the storyline.
