GANDALF--I mean, BIRD-BOT! NO!
I've somehow managed to give the impression to a number of readers that this facility is housed mostly, if not entirely, by "inert" magical artifacts from previous systems of magic.
This is not the case. It is full of relatively useless or inert artifacts, and things old enough to be from a previous system would naturally be in the minority given that the last change was hundreds of years ago.
As for the wand, well... It's apparently not just really old artifacts that are suddenly going to start working.
