Been thinking about this one for a few days now and I think I've come up withing something good. Haven't though of much of a history for this yet, but I do know that the manuscript will be placed in the Dark Vault. The effects of the artifact would be that whenever somebody reads even a portion of the manuscript, they will see their worst fears, while the downsides would be that the reader would become increasingly paranoid over the next few days or weeks that will balloon into full blown hysteria, eventually leading to a life-ending heart attack.
What's on your mind?
I'm having trouble deciding on effects. Not sure whether something subtle that affects only a single person emotionally or something more visible and wild is preferred. There probably is a happy mix somewhere, I just can't tell what. So far I;ve come up with:
- greater emotional openness
- intensive contraction of facial muscles
- microbursts showing repressed feelings
- Prosopagnosia, difficulty at recognizing emotions
- momentarily encases their head in metal or stone during a genuine flash of feeling
- a second truthful face flashing over the front/back of the head
- growing another uncensored head akin to Zaphod Beeblebrox
- Paranoid visions filled with demeaning faces of critics
- unformed, featureless faces skittering across walls like a horror movie
They bother me, people. I want to make a goal. By this time next week, everyone who can should pick at least two red links on the registry and mkae a page for them. Keep in mind they may be from existing fics and you should always check. If you don't have time to mkae a whole page then jot down you idea for an effect and let me know, I'll take care of it. Let's get the list all purpled up peeps!
Ok, so I made Da Vinci's Perpetual Motion Machine, and added a bit of history (even including a bit where he tore out the pages about such a machine from his notebook, which would lead to the idea on why he said, such a machine was a "fool's dream"), and the effects are noted. But I need a bit of help.
For starters, the image saved here, isn't poping up on the Artifact Infobox. Along with that, the last it was mentioned was in Asile YYZ-2112. I have no idea why such an aisle isn't on here, but it exists, and has been used twice in the Warehouse 13 Webisodes. Finally, the machine is a Cannon Artifact.
I'm not sure what else to do, and I'm having a bit of trouble since some info is ambiguitous. Help, plz.
prototype optimus prime and megatron toys
effect: when together they seem to have no effect but when seperated whoever has possesion of the megatron toy becomes very persuasive and can easily pursuade others to join him or her.
downside: the person in possesion of the megatron toy becomes unstable and paranoid, and will order their followers to start rioting or some other form of violence
since this is a two part artifact, nutriliser has no effect, and the effect and downside can only be stopped by reuniting optimus and megatron
Since Wiles and Mr. 123 have their own artifact ideas listed now, I figured I might throw my hat into the ring as well and give some artifacts of my own that I just came up with, courtesy of the Wright Brothers (and a person connected to the Warehouse). They're not my most well-refined ones, but that's why they're here for all to see and discuss! Without further delay, here we go!:

Yeah my artifact idea is are the Bronze Mirrors from the Archimedes Death Ray. I know the Mythbusters busted the myth 3 times Athough what if the reason is that it's artifact? (Well the mirrors are anyway.) Can I create a page or it?
Effects: Different forms of light are affected differently. Reflected sunlight is very hot. Reflected moonlight is very cold. The effects of reflected light from man-made sources tend to very depending on the properties of the light source. (intensity, color of light, properties of the light) (Note: people can only get affected if the reflected light shines on them.)
Downside: Reflected sunlight causes things to catch on fire. Reflected moonlight causes things to freeze. Reflected light from man-made light sources can have unexpected side effects. Is able to reflect the abilitiy's of other artifacts. (Strangely enough, when the ability's of other artifacts are reflected they are less powerfull.)
Activation: When light hits the surface.
P.S. I am working on my own Warehouse 13 fanfiction that will feature one of the mirrors. Any advice welcome.
Edit: I hope the edits help. Also here are a few examples of the effects of light reflected man made light sources.
Standered red light bulb: reflected light can cause someone to feel lots of anger.
Standered blue light bulb: reflected light can cause someone to feel very sad.
Yellow bug-zapper light bulb: insects/bugs that the reflected light shines onto the reflected light instantly die.
So, I found a cool video game about a man who was brought from the dead by the Grim Reaper, only to be cursed by the Reaper to do everything (breathing, blinking, etc.) manually.
I would like there to be an artifact from this fandom, but would like some ideas from you guys. What do you think? What type of artifact would you get from this particular game?
Could a person be considered an Artifact, and why?
It's for my Agent alt-ego.
Hello, guys! My name is Sarah and I am from the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculair Children wiki. I have a ton of questions about a book that I'm really interested in.
What powers would this book have as an artifact? Would anyone want this to be an artifact? And lastly, what other Sherlock Holmes stories would be cool as artifacts?
For the first question, I was thinking about it summoning the Hound upon reading. But I need help on the other questions, as well as your opinion on how summoning a hound would effect the reader. Would it kill you whether or not your a Baskerville? And what if you were a Baskerville?
So many questions, so little time.
Today's the 100th birthday of famous broadcaster Walter Cronkite, who upheld the importance of responsible journalism, reporting events during WWII, Vietnam, the JFK assassination, Watergate, Apollo 11 and the Civil Rights movement. I just happened to see that on google and the little section we have for journalism, named after him. To celebrate, let's make some artifacts dedicatd towards journalism and reporting!
since i don't know what i'm doing and my 1 attempt to make an artifact really upset the admins (sorry again) i'll post the description here
Marty Mcfly's Bomber Jacket
owner Michel J Fox
effect: causes unstable short term time shifts
Downside: possably erases warer from existance
collected by: unknown, found in the warehouse near a large neutraliser bucket, the jacket was covered in neautraliser but apparently it was insufficent.
section: science fiction
As some of you may know, I created a fanfic on the fanon wiki, Monsters in Tokyo. I have a story arc in mind, focusing on Megan but with a couple other agents joining in.
At the end of the story, Master Fey wishes to collect more powerful artifacts, stretching into other fandoms. So my question for the group is, what are some powerful (and feasibly dangerous) artifacts not within the Warehouse walls that they could get their hands on? Any fandoms at all with powerful objects, and if there are any significant Urban Legends with a powerful following that might catch someone's eye as well.
My reasons for this post are two-fold: one, I just read that a Sailor Moon Exhibit opened on the 16th in Tokyo. There's going to be a lot of things there, some of which have never been seen before. I have a decent number of artifacts relating to Sailor Moon that I have come up with, but perhaps some of the artifacts there might not be directly related to the fans? I plan to write up a story of the collection of a couple of the Sailor Moon artifacts I came up with from there, but perhaps an additional snag is mixed in? Second, I recently read an article about how, for the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening, Nintendo commissioned a blacksmith to create an actual Falchion (a weapon of legend in the series). It's a one-of-a-kind weapon. I'm willing to bet that it would be an artifact, and I'm also willing to bet that, if we did some digging, we might find similar stories with other objects or items from shows, games, books, etc.
Here's a list of shows, games, books, etc. that I don't see in the Convention Aisle or Television Section that I think are most likely have an artifact related to them (If I'm wrong on anything or you guys think one or more shouldn't be on this list, let me know - I'm not an expert). If we can come up with them, that'd be great! And if you guys can think of anything I don't list initially, feel free to comment on it!
- Fire Emblem (Falchion)
- Call of Duty
- Mario and/or Donkey Kong
- SpongeBob Squarepants
- Fairly Odd Parents
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Hey, so I've been going over some of my old artifacts ideas, and I've found several that I never created effects for. I could use some help coming up with effects, so if anyone has any ideas to share, that'd be much appreciated!
- John Chriton's Gun "Winonna" (Farscape)
- Viking "+ULFBERH+T" Sword (I thought it might be torture related, but it doesn't have to be)
- Ulysses S. Grant's Cigar
- Piece of Sadam Hussain's Statue (not in the Warehouse)
- Old monocle (collected during the time of Warehouse 11)
- Whip from St. Mary of Bethlehem Asylum (torture related)
- Straightjacket from St. Mary of Bethlehem Asylum (torture related)
B.F. Skinner's "Baby Tender"
- Emerald Necklace (collected during Warehouse 1)
- Charred Crane from Greene County Oil Well Fire
So, I was looking at the Dark Vault, and it's very nearly complete (meaning no excess links). However, there are a few, and I think it's about time we bang those out. Here are the artifacts, combining both this wiki and the main wiki:
- Crystal Skull
- Mannequin Legs: I wonder if they may be related to an accident of some kind?
- Marionette Doll: Not the one we made, even though it is listed as canon. According to the main wiki, this one has a silver trumpet attached to it.
- Ming Vase
- Old Tricycle: Possibly a reference to the movie Omen (as stated on the main wiki)
- Original TGC Edition of Exodia
- Photo Booth Camera
- Red Rose: Poisonous. Other effects unknown.
So we know there's a lot of background details on the show. We needed a dedicated place to take an image and scrutinize the shit out of it. Pick out the details, iron out specific and weed out those little bits that are causing us frustration. Take a screenshot, pin it up and let's all gather 'round and tear it apart.
