Antiquarian

(image)

Long ago, powerful ancient mages searched for ways to store part of their power for descendants, creating mysterious artefacts. Power of such items is well-known for people of Wesnoth - to begin with, the very country would never been created nor survived first terrible wars with orces without power of ancient Ruby of Fire. Of course, not only ancient mages were able to create artefacts - as modern magic science surpassed ancient art in many aspects, allowing mass production of items like white mages' holy relics and cursed fifes of witches. But for private individuals - even very rich - both ancient and modern artefacts aren't available. Where unsatisfied demand is, black market will always appear. Officialy, so called ''Antiquarians'' are just buying and reselling antiques. In fact, knowledgeable person can find very valuebled and powerful things among their goods. Even when truth is revealed, it maybe not very good idea to immediately grab an antiquarian - some of these people are very skilled not only in selling of magic items but also in using of them. Common city guard patrol can't handle them.
