[edit] Artifacts

  • Locations indicated by the console at, after entering Omphaloi locations with their associated destinations.
  • I'm using a naming convention for the artifact as:
    • [Omphalos #][sequence found, A/B/C/etc] (and optionally the city name)
      eg, Cardiff was the first artifact found through omphalos #1 (Stephenville), so it's "1A (Cardiff)"
    There's no guarantee the artifacts will be found in order, so the contents are being ordered as they're found.
  • The artifacts contain pages of 27 chapters from the "Codex of the Lost Ring".
  • According to Ariadne (email to Jasper, March 16, 2008), players should TAKE the artifacts they find.
  • According to a blog post from Markus on each artifact location a "second story" can be found.
  • Kai set up a map on Flickr of the artifact locations.
