There are relics that crop up from time to time in the wastelands of Accursed Atlantis that can turn the tide of life itself, relics of earlier universe, lost times, and places that are simply the shattered remains of things long past that are simply pieces of things so alien as to defy the very nature and ideas about life and sanity. Here are six of those relics that drift into and out of the lives of Freebooters and foolish adventurers that come across them.
