Custom EU cards [artefacts]

After my remade Monster, Chaos Spell, and Scroll cards, I finished my Artefact cards (= quest treasure).
I changed the backside of the card with the "Artefact" text on a scroll, added Zenithfleet's already made KK/RotWL artefact cards, remade the original 5, and balanced and remade the EQP/BQP artefacts as well.
I left out the scrolls, because I added those to the scroll deck.
I also changed the functionality of the Ancient Staff, as it was way overpowered. This staff would prevent any chaos sorcerer from using any spell if the elf was in the same room. And you can use it 5 times. That's a whole lot. So I didn't make the staff reflect spells, but only cancel them, and I added a die throw to it, so you'd have a 1/2 chance of failure, 1/3 chance of succes, but also a 1/6 chance of permanently losing the staff.

I noticed the EQP and BQP both have an item to add +2 BP and +1 MP to the Elf and Barbarian's total. This means I'm going to have to make similar artifacts for the Dwarf and Wizard. I'll add them in the next PDF. I need some nice art. I might also make some extra artifacts with limited uses for Dwarf and Wizard. I can use the 2 unused drawings for the wizard from the US artefacts (wizards cloak and staff) and the US wand of recall. Just need to find some Dwarf stuff.

Let me know what you think so far!

Perfect, those.

For Dwarf stuff, take a gander at the Warhammer magic stuff, if you can.
Or the Dwarf Army book.
That's what I do first when I'm re-doing stuff for HQ.

I'm afraid I don't have any Warhammer books or other reading material. Never played it.

I made these so far:

Okay, so I've added these 2 cards to the PDF. I haven't made any new cards, as I noticed the Barbarian doesn't get anything especially for him either, it's just the Elf really, so I decided against making new stuff. The 2 Elf items are quest related anyway, and he loses them afterwards. So if a DM wants to create a quest for any of the heroes in particular, it's better to add a new item especially for that quest in the notes.

Created a new card for use with the "Halls of Durrag Dol" quest. More to follow :)

Thanks! I've added some more cards, and updated the file again. Decided to add the disappearing dust and the poison quill after all, and ordered the cards logically. Also added two artefacts from the Dark Company quest.

Since we've been playing HQ with the NA rules lately, I found that some of the "softened" NA artefacts I made for the EU game were too soft. So I reworded the Throwing Dagger back to the original mechanism.
I also added a new artefact with the art from the NA Wand of Recall (which is different from the EU card art). I wanted to use it for something, and I had seen a "Rod of Memory" somewhere, that enabled a caster to recast one spell endlessly. Well, that would have been waaaay to OP (infinite Genie?) so I added a new mechanism. Hope you like.
