A magic item is an artefact or device imbued with magical power. Such items are not common in the Warhammer world and their extraordinary value and arcane nature means that they often take the form of treasured heirlooms belonging to noble houses or powerful magical covens. The kings and lords of the Old World possess many such devices, but rightly fear to use them except in the most dire of circumstances,
We have provided a short list of magic items in this book. These are items of a relatively general type, the kind of artefacts that can be made and duplicated by an accomplished artificer of magic. However, most magic items are unique and their nature is strongly bound to the race that created them. You will find many more magic items specific to each race described in the Warhammer Army books.
