0010518: Carried Artifacts scattered around area when nearing lair
When carrying an artifact (happened with both a necromancer slab and a player-named 'artifact' hammer) or certain other items (like books containing the secrets of life and death), discovering/nearing certain sites appears to remove the items and scatter them around the area.
From this save: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13408 [^]

Examining my inventory includes a slab with secrets of life and death as well as two books scribed with the same secrets, as well as a player-named silver hammer (wielded).

Travel south towards the lair until you get a 'You discover a river' message, keeping an eye on the movement speed and equipped weapon and you will notice the hammer disappears once the message pops up. Examining the inventory reveals that the slab as well as the two books with the secrets of life and death have also vanished.

If you continue south to the lair and explore it, you (might) be able to find the weapon/books again (as well as the hydra). I was able to find one of the books and the weapon laying around so I presume the other items will be around there somewhere, but I couldn't find them.
No tags attached.
