The world of Deadlands 1876 is a haunted one, full of strange artifacts invested with power. Some have been deliberately prepared, while others have been selected by fate to bear witness to strange histories. This section offers profiles on some of the more unusual “relics” that may be used by, for, or against stalwart player characters.

These leather-and-brass claws were once worn by Hellcat Maggie, the “vixen of the Bowery.”

Once owned by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, this bloodthirsty sword was carried all the way to Alkali Lake, Nebraska on the conquistador’s mad quest for the Seven Cities of Gold.

Knife of the Aqedah
The dagger nearly used by Abraham to slay Isaac, this storied relic has the power to invoke visions and bind angels.

Shillelagh of Gallus Mag
Used to thump numerous waterfront toughs before getting their ears bitten off, this bloodstained shillelagh has the ability to do an astronomical amount of damage—depending on the wielder’s luck, of course!

Miscellaneous Items

Forged by the White Glove Society, this bizarre set of aluminum dinnerware grants cannibals special powers when they practice their gourmet talents.
