Rick has a good point about 'treasure' that Delecti has. Perhaps we can add some treasure - a la the Dwarf - with Delecti. Makes it more interesting to visit him. Off the top of my head, how about:

"Delecti can be allied in the normal manner. On any particular turn, a player has the choice of allying Delecti, using the normal emissary rules, and trying to gain a EWF artifact. On attempting to gain an artifact use the following table:

  Role Result

If a player allies Delecti with their Banner in the allying stack, Delecti automatically allies (no roll required) AND brings all EWF artifacts that have not been already gained by a player. These artifacts must stay with Delecti while he is 'alive' and allied. Should Delecti 'die' or cease the alliance, the artifacts remain and may be carried and used by any other unit."

Comments? Ideas for EWF artifacts?
