Complete List of Mystara Artifacts

by Andrew Theisen

I've been working with magic items of Mystara lately, and as part of that, I've been trying to compile a complete list of all Mystaran artifacts. I'd like as comprehensive a listing as possible with sources, and have a (long-term) goal of actually trying to flesh them all out according to the artifact rules; many of them have incomplete artifact listings or (for most) consist of little more than names.

The list I've got so far:

*Note: Not all of these (such as many of the DMR1 magic items) are intended to be artifacts, but I think that- with the possibility of one or two- there is room to make them so by expanding on the histories given and powers indicated, and so have included them all here.

I did not include the list of suggested artifacts from the Master DM's Guide, as they were just suggestions absent more detailed information. Whether I will change my mind on that score or not remains to be seen.

If anyone can think of any that I've missed (I'm still going through various sources, and sometimes there isn't much more about them than a name, or perhaps just a description without a name), please let me know!
