Aura of curiosity

Time to completely disregard that sticker!
Effect Compulsion to activate artifacts at will
Colour Radioactive Glowing

Having an aura of curiosity will temporarily boost a hero's IQ level. With this new found brain power, a hero will activate artifacts without divine inspiration and without using any godpower.

This aura can be a blessing or a curse - curiosity did kill the cat, and we all know cats are much smarter than heroes. The Hero might activate a dimensional destabilizer and find a scroll with instructions for a premature level up.

Just as likely they might already have a fully constructed temple and activate a Kill switch (out of combat) and melt 3000GC (Gold coins) into a gold brick only to sell the brick for 1000GC. In any case the aura is sure to be a load of fun, and you might even end up with a bunch of free Tribbles courtesy of a Mystery box!

Arena artifacts (Arena ticket, etc) appear to be the only artifacts that are immune to the aura's effect, due to heroes being just barely smart enough to not actively pursue their own death.
