The quest for bigger and better loot is one of the driving factors in adventuring, but one that is seldom found in the stories we love. Protagonists of the stories we read often have one or two unique items that define their characters and become like heirlooms. Bilbo's mithril shirt and King Arthur's Excalibur are great examples of this. Fortunately, you aren't limited to just offering new and better magical items. In this article, we'll talk about creating objects that become powerful along with the characters. We also include a unique evolving item to drop into your campaign.
