Relics are very powerful artifacts and trophies that an empire can collect if they defeat a crisis or own the required DLC. Every Relic has a passive effect as well as a powerful Triumph effect that requires resources. All Relics share a Triumph cooldown of 10 years during which no other relic can be activated. Relics give large amounts of Score in games with victory enabled.

If an empire conquers the capital of another empire there is a 10% chance to steal one of the owned Relics. The chance is increased to 15% if the empire has the Civic barbaric despoilers.png Barbaric Despoilers civic.

Minor Artifacts[edit]

Minor artifacts large.png Minor Artifacts represent small artifacts left behind by ancient civilizations. Unlike all other resources they are not gained passively at the end of each month but rather have to be found. Minor Artifacts are used in artifact actions and decisions. If the MegaCorp.png MegaCorp DLC is installed they can also be used to upgrade a Mega Art Installation past its final stage.
