A unique investment, the omnibus will allow the user to learn any Talents released in the future for free. Perhaps the only artifact with a potentially unlimited rate of return!

The masterwork tool provides the effects of all of the tradeskill boon artifact powers in one item.

The Libram of Transience
------------------------
Ownership of the Libram entitles the owner to free transfers of artifact powers between any of their owned artifacts.

Torc of the Voidwalker
----------------------
Wearing this torc will obfuscate the area around its wearer in the same fashion as the Mirage ability of the Sciomancers. The effect will be able to be negated by removing the torc. For reference, Mirage causes anyone looking into the room through any means to see a different room entirely.

Pet Tokens
----------
Each pet token may be traded in for a pet with the standard 900 credit package of features, including being mountable, sentient, invincible, and able to fly! Pet types are subject to review.

Bangles of Returning

Drinking from the unctuous flask will immediately reduce your drunkenness and hunger to nil. This can only be used once per hour, and only by the owner, you crazy alcoholics.

Bag o' Bombs
------------
Similar to a flowerpot, only with a variety of explosives from the Pyrotechnics talent appearing in it every day. Muhahaha.

Belakai's Terrarium
-------------------
Gone but never forgotten, Belakai was acclaimed for his green thumb as much as for his hatred of dwarves. Own a piece of history with Belakai's very own terrarium! This portable plot will yield up to 100 herbs of your choosing every Aetolian month, so youll never need to run around searching for moss, bloodroot, or goldenseal again!

The Organ Locker
----------------
We're not quite sure where it came from, nor quite how it works, but this bloody locker was found in the back of the Celani broom closet, stinking like you wouldn't believe. The owner gets the privilege (?) of extracting up to 100 organs every month from within the Locker, so its perfect for the pacifistic people-eaters out there.

A Thrim Flute
-------------
Nothing cures or causes a headache quite like a thrim to the cranium. Relive the golden days of Kerrithrim's invasion with this marvelous instrument. Once a year, the owner can summon a swarm of thrim to whatever area they find themselves in simply by playing this flute. The rest of the year, the flute will provide an instant remedy to thrim infestation!

A Merchant's Logbook
--------------------
Lost are the days of the Merchant Princes of Old, gathering herbs and forging arms and taking up all manner of professions to serve the populace by lightening their packs and kitbags of clunky sovereigns. Relive those innocent times with the Merchants Logbook! Though you'll still only be able to hold one Mercantile skill at a time, the Logbook allows you to switch between each, once per hour, while only ever having to invest lessons into one! Guaranteed to become more valuable with time!

A Wand of Eldlore
-----------------
The eld can be tough cookies to crack, but what glorious ylem when you get to that gooey center! If you want a keepsake of your battles, this wand is for you. Manage to slay an Eld using this wand (it's weak, I'll tell you that) and its image will be transformed into a collectible figurine for your enjoyment!

A Bottomless Vial
-----------------
This vial may be filled with any elixir or serum, and will never run out.

A Set of Inking Tools

--------------------
This talisman has 6 petals upon it which may be plucked at any time, and each petal, when consumed, will restore the health, mana, blood, endurance, and willpower of the owner. If consumed by anyone else, the petals will restore only the endurance and willpower of that person. The petals regrow at a rate of one per month.

A Prayer Book

A glimmering paintbrush

You can specify a colour for the words to appear in by preceding the message with a number corresponding to that colour as per CONFIG COLOR.

An urn of lava

A barrel of inviolability
-------------------------
Nothing more than your average barrel lacking a top and bottom, this barrel stood for many years in Qeddwyn's workshop. During Qeddwyn's many years of work, the barrel managed to inadvertently acquire powers of its own, due to the long, close proximity exposure to other artifacts. Anybody wearing the barrel will find themselves unable to be attacked via blackwind choke, or abducted by Syssin.

A bag of medicine
--------------
Allows the owner to pull up to three random medicines (grimstin, phoenix heart, bull's eye) from it once per howling.

Wand of the Charmer
--------------
Makes almost any denizen loyal to you for a minute, meaning they will defend you if you are attacked, but not allowing you to order them around.

Cannot be used on NPCs loyal to a player.

--------------
When pointed at an icewall, it will instantly turn that icewall into a firewall. When pointed at a firewall, it will instantly turn that firewall into an icewall.

These bracers contain level 4 of the critical_chance artifact, conferring an 8% increase.

Sphere of Reflection
--------------------

A riding crop
-------------
