as a long-time gamer, i'm a big fan of 2 particular artifacts from the 1e DMG: the mighty servant of leuk-o and the machine of lum the mad.
i've been giving some thought recently to adapting these for 4e and am not sure how to proceed re: the mighty servant. part of me wants to stat it as an artifact but the rest of me wants to stat it as a monster.
the intention is not to make it available as something the PCs would ever possess but quite possibly an encounter...but still...
right now i'm leaning more towards monster rather than artifact since i think that seems more likely. for story reasons, the party will not get the opportunity to possess it, so that seems kinda reasonable.
but i thought it an interesting question to pose.
