Hmm, I bet you don't know what a palentir is yet, eh? There are definitely
some artifacts that should never wear out. Why do you want any of them to
burn out? There are already some nasty spells that affect artifacts, some
common artifacts (gate crystals, ancient books, perhaps others) are used up
through use. Combat artifacts are fun but not really important in battle
(if all your soldiers are dead that crystal shield isn't gonna save you.)
So which artifacts are too powerful? I can see an argument for saying that
control artifacts should be toned down. Perhaps once the initial units are
destroyed they shouldn't be replaced? There are a finite number of inner
locations and once those are cleared the world will become much less
