Often these are freebooters, adventurers and the occasional wasteland outlaw whose wanderings bring them into contact with the ruins and places where these items and things of magick can be found.
Often these devices or relics of ages past will have powerful and dangerous spirits moving around them. These beings may have 1d4 minor mutations,powers or abilities associated with the wasteland area where they are found. They are sometimes dangerous in the extreme and will take their frustrations out on anyone who stumbles across them and their relic summoning devices.
