For Z, i was going to do Zoo, Enchanted, of King Gling and make it an artifact, a place filled with magical or rare animals behind enchanted bars, so it's more of a "place" than a thing.

yeah, X is a tough one, but i found this while researching:

Xyst
n. 1. (Anc. Arch.) A long and open portico, for athletic exercises, as wrestling, running, etc., for use in winter or in stormy weather.

Xylophone. Can't believe no one thought of it; it's a common instrument of ancient origin still used in schools everywhere.
Similarly, a Zither is another truly ancient instrument.
A Zurna is the predecessor of the Shawm that appeared in the 12th century.

For Y consider the traditional Yurt tent, and the Yolk of a mystical egg.

xylophone and xither i can probably use. I actually have EGGS already! So yolk might be redundant.

Egg of Exquisite Taste (Very Rare, Neutral)

Description: These enchanted eggs look exactly like normal white or brown chicken eggs. However, when cracked and cooked in a dish (or fried or boiled or scrambled) and then eaten, the consumer is overcome by just how delicious it is. This is a mind-altering charm effect. Grievances can be forgotten; prior promises can be negated; agreements can be broken and contracts can be ignored, just so long as the consumer can satisfy his desire to eat more of the exquisite egg dish. If confronted with an option, ultimatum or command, the imbiber must make a DC 15 Willpower check or agree to whatever arrangement is being offered. Orders of self-harm or ridiculous or impossible requests are ignored. The effects of the enchanted egg fade after about an hour.

Egg of Surprises (Artifact, lesser, Neutral)


Description: This metallic golden egg is 6” tall and encrusted with rare gems. If twisted counterclockwise the egg clicks open to release one of 5 random mechanized creatures that amble out, one at a time, as detailed below, growing from a small toy to its full size in one round. (i'm not done writing this one yet)

D100% roll
