Artifacts Adventures: What? Who?
« on: (03:08:43/09-06-10) »
I understand that in the Dawn of the Artifacts, there is an Astral Sextant.  This item is dug up from the 4th world.  It is especially potent, but not as a weapon.  As I do not actually posess the book, can someone tell me any more items that are brought forward from Earthdawn times?  How about news on people, places, or dragons?
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

I haven't put runners through them yet, but the main Johnson for the firsttwo books is Jane "Frosty" Foster, and Ehran comes in as the Johnson in book 3. The third book is about the Phaistos Disk, but I haven't scanned what it's about.

Happy to oblige.

As do I, but they use their old world names.  The only ones I can recall offhand as confirmed are Mountainshadow (Dunkelzahn), Icewing (Ghostwalker), and Alamaise (same name, surprisingly).  There are probably more, but I don't remember them, as they probably haven't made as big a splash in the mainstream.

The Ancientfiles as posted above if I remember right lists all the old names with the new .....at least as far as the wise one AH has been able to track down.

You remember correctly. It's a shame that The Wise One is no more with Catalyst, now that "active" crossover has come back into fashion... Lost them quite a bit of a brain there.

I'm still considering starting an Indexing project of all the sourcebooks to easily find where stuff is mentioned and when.

Have fun I wanted to do something like that for the novels after rereading and takeing notes for 3 novels I gave up but then again it was just too much work for me to actually do for a game.

I'd rather play.

Alas, I'm not playing in SR that much right now, so it's a lot easier to do these projects to keep my fanboi-ism fresh.
