These aren't your ordinary equipment. Rare artifacts provide your character with some
ridiculous amazing abilities. Some say they are useful, others say they are unfair. Whichever your opinion, there is no denying the intrigue that these items have on SGS fanatics.
What are Rare Artifacts?
These are a set of cards that come with the Unofficial Demon Pack. You can consider them as "modifications" to soup-up your regular SGS game. They are not compulsory nor necessary. These cards come with abilities that contort some of the fundamental rules of the game.
How do I use Rare Artifacts?
Since they are playing cards, it all depends on your luck to draw them from the deck. Once in your hand, you can choose to "equip" this Rare Artifact. Note that Rare Artifacts have a special equipment slot of its own, separate from the other usual equipment.
Once equipped, the artifact ability is takes effect immediately and will last as long as it is still equipped.
How many Rare Artifacts can I equip?
[Updated] Only one. This has been confirmed in the instruction booklet that comes with the Demon Pack.
Can I voluntarily discard my equipped artifact?
No, unless you have another artifact to replace it. It works the same was as armour.
Can another player Steal 顺手牵羊 or Dismantle 过河拆桥 my equipped artifact?
Does the ability of the artifact last for only one use, or infinite uses as long as it is equipped?
Infinite, as long as equipped.
So, there you go. Just a very quick introduction to this niche area of SGS.
That's it for now. Have fun and 杀!
