Relics are ancient artifacts that can be placed on the battlefield. When picked up by a unit, you draw a card from the shuffled Relic deck. That character now possesses that relic. You may keep the card hidden from your opponent until it is used.
Relics can be passed to another unit as a standard action, by the unit who is possession of it.
You can use anything to symbolize a relic – a penny, a 3d treasure chest, a game token.
