With Veteran’s Bow, I would take some inspiration from the Bounty Hunter’s Lie in Wait:

Action: Exhaust this card to end your turn.

When you refresh this card, perform one action. This is in addition to your 2 normal actions.

A possible alternate wording for the Ring Of Regeneration:

When you suffer damage from any source, exhaust this card.

Exhaust this card at the end of the overlord’s turn to recover 1 damage.

1. Good catch. Definitely will use this wording instead. Thanks.
2. To me it sounds a little bit complicated, but I'll think about it. Thanks again.
I hope to see more feedback from you in the future :)

You can find multiple items in the game that increase your stats like strength so a character with 4 could easy use this weapon as intended with an artifact.

Yes. It's intended

There's not so much, in fact, no more than 6 with relics inside.

If you're still in on this ... can I suggest going through Imperial Assault's "Supply Crate" cards?

Mechanically speaking they were able to get a lot of variation in their rewards.  So while they had 3-5 different recovery items they were able to mix it up and keep it balance with strength and usage conditions (some had marginal boosts but were free actions, some had to be used while resting but were stronger, etc).  Likewise the various grenades in IA could easily be converted to black powder bombs, fractured rune stones, flash vials, etc.

Also, the general lore of Descent could serve as great consumables inspiration.  Turning tools of particular cults against them.  Bandit's poisoned throwing dagger.  etc

 

One other request is GOOD short-term conditions.  Focus for buffing the next attack, Inspiration for test re-rolls, a single round Stealthy benefit, Magic barrier defense, etc.

 

Looked through, love the work you've done so far.  keep it up.  :D

I would be grateful if you could provide some links to pics with these supply crates.
I will create one GOOD condition soon, thanks for suggestion.
Thank you for your feedback :D

https://imperial-assault.fandom.com/wiki/Supply_Card

this is an index to the supply cards released in the various packs.

Also, I did some curiosity digging and found these print-out back-ups of cards from the old Hero Quest game system.
