Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones Wiki

Artifacts are occult items that come with both a Power and a Malediction. Powers and Maledictions for most artifacts are locked on first discovering the item. However, these effects can be deciphered using Occult Research. Additionally, the player character can visit Isidore Schmidt and have an artifact’s Power revealed for a price. (Maledictions can only be deciphered using Occult Research).

  • Artifacts purchased from vendors will come with their Powers unlocked
  • Beware, an artifact’s power and malediction will take effect the moment it is equipped, whether or not its effects have been unlocked
