Relics are weapons, armor, tools and vehicles that act as talismans and totems that assist a scion in their endeavors. They are often the first things gifted to scions by their divine parent as they help the scion harness their infinite potential. These powerful artifacts come in all shapes and sizes, but always possess something awe-inspiring when seen in action.

Up to ten dots may be spent on a Relic, and they need not all be purchased at once. Often a scion will learn secrets about their Relic as they advance in Legend.

Below are some options for building a Relic for your scion. The options below are just suggestions. If there is something amazing you want to see your relic do, speak with your Storyteller about designing it.

For rules on characters crafting their own relics, refer to the Crafting wiki page.
