First, just straight off my head - whore-shell. Yes, I know it's only mildly sorcerous and rather vulgar, but still.

It's mildly sorcerous and absolutely an object to be classified in our conversation here.

Agonic Circle (Anagogis - Scarlet Spires)
Agonic Collar (Gnosis - Mangaecca)
Chorae (Aporos)
Seeing-Flame (Presumably, Gnosis - Kellhus)
Ekkinu Tapestry (Presumably, Gnosis - Kellhus)
Worldhorn - (Gnosis - First Apocalypse/Twelve Gnostic Schools of Sauglish)

Gots to go.

One post. Good job me!

I didn't include that only because we have Weapons of Animata and we were initially distinguishing the two because one kind seems to require souls, animas, and the other kind, listed in this thread, don't seem to...

Mimara's knife and armour from the Coffers (Gnosis - Mihtrulic School of Sauglish; they seem to be producing the bulk of the ancient sorcerous objects).

This is another of my favorite slip-ins by Bakker. So innocuously just writes:

Quote from: WLW, p848, CanPaper
The shining bronze sheets were gone - the Skûtiri. In Seswatha's day they had ringed the Turret's base, nine thousand, nine-hundred and ninety-nine of them, each taller than a man, and each scored with innumerable lines of sorcerous script.

Thanks!  I have that in Ch 11 of WLW, pp376-7 US edition.  The devices seem to be what allows Malowebi to do far-calling.  Earwe's version of the mobile phone.  :)

Also add to the list--the physical/sorcerous gate to the library of Sauglish:

"The entrance to the Coffers.  To mundane eyes it was a wonder of scale and machination.  To arcane eyes it was nothing less than a miracle of interlocking deformities..."  WLW Chapter 1, p22 in US edition.

Oooh, and add the pouch from Yatwer where Sorweel hides a chorae.

Other possibly majik objects: the heron spear? the map case for ishual?

EDIT: Tried to remove the superfluous edit box and wanted to add--there's no mention of this object being magical, but it would fucking rock if it was: Enshoiya

EDIT2: Would like to add the Carapace.  Just caught up on reading the Weapons of Animata thread.  Help me out--it's not at all clear to me that there are magical objects apart from animata stuff.  I assumed everything magic had a soul trapped in it, Mimara's knife, the Chariots, Kellhus' pretty chair, etc.  Unwarranted assumption?

Heron Spear is Tekne. Map-case for Ishual was covered in runes (don't remember if they were sorcerous, I will check at some point). The Pouch of the ancient Anasurimbor, yes. Carapace, maybe.

To the bold, it is unwarranted, so far, but the distinction could be solidified either way at this point. We need to wait for more text.
