Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Storyteller Relic Fragment and Artifact Guide

Early on in Act 2 of Pathfinder: Kingmaker after defeating the Stag Lord and starting your kingdom, you'll encounter the Storyteller, a reclusive older elf that can assist your kingdom by buying historical items of significance off of you (finally you can sell those ancient coins and dryad tokens). While several items are sold purely to convert to gold, others are fragments of gear that the Storyteller can rebuild, returning the powerful ancient gear to its original form.

In addition to rebuilding gear from these fragments, there are also sets of relics that can be collected and returned to unlock stories which expand on Pathfinder lore, and more importantly, reward some experience and gold. We have a list of all of the fragments and relics that can either be rebuilt into gear or unlock stories and where to find the pieces below.
