One thing I really liked in the old old (but excellent) Warlords II game, was the possibillity of finding artifacts. How about implementing this in AND? An Artifact would be attached to a unit the same way a promotion would, or they could be attached like Lead as Warlord, but different (able to both attach warlords and artifacts). The later already has a nice graphic (Treasure) and can also be used to build Artifact World Wonders, which then again could be "pillaged" when city was captured. The effect could be Single Unit/Stack/Area/Empire and with Afforess skills it seems that only the imagination would be the limit Situations where artifacts could be discovered : (A) Capturing a Holy City (100% chance) (B) Capturing cities where enemy had National Wonders (5% chance) (C) Discovering in Huts (alternative to existing huts but low chance) (D) Killing high XP units (or Generals) (5-50% chance depending how high level) (E) Killing units already carrying artifacts (100%) (F) First to discover a tech (100% chance) (G) Event (H) Quest (1) Ancient (2) Classical (3) Medieval (4) Renaissance (5) Industrial (6) Modern Types of Artifacts : Weapons Jewelry Religious items Objects Beer of Jaihu Mona Lisa Ark of Covenant Cup of Jamshid The Palladium Lippershey's Spyglass Olmec Compass Rosetta Stone Shroud of Turin Dead Sea Scrolls Lucy (Australopithecus) Fossils Crystal Skull Holy Grail Excalibur The Book of the Dead The Was Sceptre of Set IMPORTANT : The Artifacts should NOT be magical but can be mythical or legendary. So no flying or supernuking in classical era, nor should they be overpowering.
