According to the info dump, there are three really key relics. The crown, harp and sword. Since we have the sword in play, I wonder if the others will be seen. Especially since the new guy can play the harp. I keep on thinking that the bad guys will under estimate the harp to their detriment. The sword is a weapon so a threat, the crown is a show of power, but the harp is an instrument of art, no matter if it is an important relic. So to the wizard lords, the harp is the least of them
The little girl is believed to be the first wild Mage, with a host of talents. I am imagining what happens if she puts on the crown. It reads minds and finds dark magic, which as a Mage she can already do, it expands her range. I wonder if it can expand the range of her other gifts. A key advantage of mages is that they can pool their talents and powers. Imagine what happens if a Mage of her power does this wearing the crown. Look at how mages stump wizards as it is, imagine the supercharged.
The war maid and champion couple were bound together by the gods, linked by power flu magics. Imagine if G and K were similarly linked, pooling their power.
I just remembered the sword is a wild magic relic, so i bet the other two are as well. That is sure to have special meaning in the future. Apart from these three items, i wonder if there are others. I doubt there would be a huge number, but there have been other wild wizard through the ages. They might be hidden from wand and wild wizards, perhaps even mages. But a wild mage with full access to her power could be a whole entirly different matter.

Perhaps Wencit has a clue, or knows where to buy one.

I remember a conversation that Wencit had with Bahzell, Brandark, Keiritha and Vaijon in the War God's Own. He explained that human-Hradani hybrids inherited the best of both parents i.e. the Hradani's strength and resilience and the human's capacity for wizardry. Coupled with the Hradani's link to the magic field, and you potentially get the most powerful beings on Orfressa, with their inherent infertility being the only thing that prevented them from taking over the world. So Bahzell's daughter is less a mage and more a wild wizard.

I also recall something Wencit said in the Sword Brother novella - That the spells that strafed Kontovare were still open and active and ready for him to use again for as long as he lives (and that he is ultimately mortal). Perhaps this is why Wencit was so willing top go all out against the Council of Carnadosa when Varnaythus was about to kill Lyanna - To ensure the birth of Bahzell's and Lyanna's daughter, who would take control of those spells once he was no longer around. Wencit perhaps knows that he and Norfressa can only hope to win (or at least survive) if the Carnadosans dare not back their "conventional" forces with the full power of their sorcery.
