American Artifacts Now Available from Hex Games
Hex Games has just released American Artifacts, a collection of distinctly American magical items.
When you think of magical artifacts, you probably think of magic wands, or gold rings, or weapons--King Arthur's sword Excalibur, maybe, or the Ring of the Nibelung. Wands and rings and swords were all well and good for the Old World, but this is America, and a New World demands a new style of artifact. There are a few swords scattered across these fifty states, but you're more likely to find a magic gun, like Elvis's Golden Gun, or an enchanted locomotive, like Lincoln's Funeral Train.
American Artifacts includes entries for 20 magical artifacts suitable for use in a wide variety of games. Each entry includes a description of the artifact, background information, and game mechanics using the QAGS system. The artifacts range from the helpful, like the Gygaxian Dice, to the dangerous, like The Rug That Ties the Room Together.
American Artifacts can be purchased in PDF form at www.hexgames.com and at the finer PDF sales sites for just $1.99. You can also purchase the QAGS rulebook, The Pytheas Club, Waxmans Warriors, and more at those same sites.
For those who would like to sample QAGS before they buy it, the QAGS Qik Start Rules are available for download at www.hexgames.com, absolutely free.
American Artifacts is 100% made in America. It is edited by Tennessee's own Carter Newton and moodily illustrated by Missouri's Jeffrey Johnson.
Discover national treasures. Have more fun!
