Relics and Artifacts will grant the player blessings, which represent the influence of ancient magic and the divine favor of the gods. This works like passive training and will always "stick" to the character, no matter where he travels to or which campaign he'll join.
Relics are player and city rewards. They offer similar blessings like Artifacts, but can only be utilized by a smaller number of players – they can be placed inside of the buildings in the cities or villages of the Eternal Kingdom.
It is planned, that these items can be freely traded between players.
