Well, I've been wanting one of these for a long time, so here is my proposal about how Misc objects are to be written up.

Name - The name of the artifact, and also any other names it has been called by.

Overview - Why is the object useful? Include a few interesting details, along with the main reason the thing is important.

Appearance - What does the object look like? An exact replica of one of Dala's demonducks? Perhaps the form of a falcon in green marble. Even the engraved image of a small Tarep breathing green fire upon a legion of elven soldiers could be a part of your artifact, if you include it in this section.

Uses - Here, you get to write the exact uses of the object, and all powers that the artifact is noted for.

History - Who developed it, and where. Are there any significant people associated with it? Any impotant events it was involved in? Even basic details like "This ladle is used to serve all soups made in fair contests in Derbyshire," can add flavor to an entry.

Myth/Lore - Perhaps this object that we've been talking about for so long is simply legendary, and everyone thinks that is was born of a pond made where one of Ava's tears fell and remained. Maybe forged by Coor in dark ages long since forgotten. Whatever it is, it will make your entry seem wonderful, and even mysterious.

So. Does that work? If not, just mention other categories that should be included. I may not have thought of averything, but this template has been needed for quite a while.

Well, if that's official...
I'd suggest that everybody goes and looks at all of their old artifact entries (not including weapons) and formats them correctly. I might just have a few of these to do. Of course, this is all if you have time...
