So here's the game... think of an artifact, either from legend, myth, or where ever and post it here.

No stats, just the name of the item. Some we might be able to use, others are just fun to think of. Use most sources but please don't be cheesy, leave out lame ass anime and crap like Kratos's Blades of Chaos out of this.

I'll list a few so you know what I mean...

Hatshepsut's or some other pharaoh's nemes. (Egyptian Pharaoh)

The Masamune or Muramasa

The Eye of Shangri'la (The Mummy, Rise of the Dragon Emperor)

Ceridwen's Cauldron

Hercules's Nemean Lion Pelt

Lancelot's Shield


We'll go from here...

Don't forget Zeus' impervious Aegis, his shield.

From Hindu myth comes the Vajra...an indestructible weapon said to be capable of cutting through anything, and of hurling thunderbolts. It was wielded by Indra.

There's the Shiva Dhanush; the bow Shiva used...

The so-called "ultimate weapon," of course is the Brahmastra...which destroys any target and razes the land around it, but can only be used with a special key phrase and then only once in a lifetime (and with the tacit approval of Brahma himself).

...dang the Hindus have some good stuff. I won't do an exhaustive list, but check it out when you're googlesurfing sometime. smile

Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi is a legendary Japanese sword as important to Japan's history as Excalibur is to Britain's, and is one of three Imperial Regalia of Japan. It was originally called Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi, "Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven") but its name was later changed to the more popular Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi ("Grass Cutting Sword").

The Yasakani no Magatama stands for benevolence, and is one of the three items used in the ceremony of imperial ascension. In Japanese mythology, the jewels, along with the mirror, were hung on the tree outside of Amaterasu's cave (where she had hidden) to lure her out. It is believed to be a necklace composed of jade magatama stones instead of a solitary gem as depicted in popular culture. It is believed to be enshrined in Kokyo, the Japanese Imperial Palace.

Yata no Kagami is a sacred mirror that is part of the Imperial Regalia of Japan. It is said to be housed in Ise Shrine in Mie prefecture, Japan, although a lack of public access makes this difficult to verify. The Yata no Kagami represents "wisdom" or "honesty," depending on the source. Its name literally means "The Eight Hand Mirror," likely a reference to its width.
