Activated activatable artifact
|Activated activatable artifact|
|Description||A used-up, has-been activatable artifact.|
As the name implies, this is the husk, empty bottle, assorted parts or other remains that a hero unwittingly leaves behind every time an activatable artifact is used. A random monster will come across these remainders and keep them as a curiosity, only for another wandering hero to slay the monster and take this junk for itself. Unaware of the item's true nature, the hero will believe it to be of significant value and sell it the next time they are in town.
What happens after that is a mystery. Some say that the parts are sent to hidden factories in the wild to create new activatable artifacts, of witch they test every single one, dumping the activated activatable artifacts in the wild for monsters (and later on heroes and heroines) to find. Others say that the trader eventually realises the pointlessness of the artifact and tosses it away. What we know for certain is that you don't really care since you've already made money from selling off what is essentially worthless junk. Hooray for capitalism!
