Crafted Artifact

Surgical Claws (right)

Created and held by Dr. Rhea W. Alister.
A dozen-jointed limb with golden painted highlights and joints on a background of white carbon fiber, tipped with fingers that fold out into wicked points for surgical precision.

These limbs consist of thirteen titanium segments that swivel around on omnidirectional ball joints, each one smaller than the other and tapering off to a point at the end. It straps onto the body using a specialty harness designed to sit under arms or over the stumps of missing limbs, and is prehensile enough to grab onto objects, and the arm can position the lower joints to move along its surface, working like fingers or toes on this limb.


You gain the following benefits as long as you are wearing this Artifact.

You gain an additional limb that functions as a standard human arm and hand.

Each additional limb you posses can take one Quick Action per Round without incurring a -2 dice penalty to your main Action. Any Battle Scars that affect or remove your additional limb will heal in a single week.

Your extra appendage can be used to attack in exactly the same manner as a knives.

Your extra appendage is not connected to your nervous or circulatory systems, and you will not take damage if it is hit by an attack or destroyed.

Your Extra Appendage counts as an object and can be hacked or targeted by any Powers that affect objects or machines. Injuries to your Extra Appendage cannot be healed by Powers that affect living things but may be repaired during Downtime.

You cannot be mistaken for a normal human. You cannot always use standard human clothes, equipment, vehicles, and facilities, and when you can, you suffer an increased Difficulty.

Sucats other helping hand

Created by Terra Abaddon, given to Iryna Vorobyova.
Silver pendant given to Sucat Wrapped around a shillelegh
Crafted by Patrick Oneal

a user, perhaps inspired by the lore of the leprechaun, holds a shillelagh, a traditional Irish wooden walking stick. With a sense of wonder and anticipation, they mimic the actions of the mythical leprechaun and tap the shillelagh on the ground. The moment the stick contacts the surface, something extraordinary happens.

The ground beneath their feet begins to shimmer and swirl, opening up to reveal a glowing portal. It’s as if the tap of the shillelagh has unlocked a hidden, mystical doorway. The user, filled with a mix of excitement and a hint of apprehension, finds themselves suddenly dropping through this portal.

As they fall, the world around them transforms. Colors and lights blend in a kaleidoscope of hues, creating an ethereal tunnel around them. The sensation is otherworldly, as if they’re traveling through a conduit of magic and ancient energy.

Suddenly, the journey comes to an end as they emerge from a hole in the ground in a completely different environment.

Julian Vasquez lays on the black top, spit on his forehead as Jason and Jessica walk away laughing. The need for justice fills his heart and he looks down at his Amulet, Paranoias amulet. he grabs it and red light glimmers through his hands. He calls out for Paranoia and his calls are returned. A demonic figure blood across his body bursts from the floor grabbing Jessica by the throat and using its twisted claws to shape Jessica's face into that of a pigs. Julian smiles, justice is served.


Exert your Mind and Spend an Action to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target may roll Body, Difficulty 7, as a Free Action to resist.

If you succeed, the target receives a new Battle Scar of your choosing, limited by the contested Outcome:

  1. A Minor Battle Scar E.g. an aesthetic-only body modification (a disfigured face, a pig's tail), impacted hand or foot, or vocal changes that complicate communication
  2. A Major Battle Scar E.g. a disabled/removed hand or foot, an inability to speak, an impacted major sense, removal of a minor sense, impacted movement.
  3. A Severe Battle Scar E.g. a disabled/removed arm or leg, deafness, aesthetic changes that are nearly impossible to conceal.
  4. An Extreme Battle Scar E.g. removal/disabling both hands or both legs, blindness, a full-body deformation that leaves the target humanoid but makes it difficult to use clothes, vehicles, and equipment designed for humans.
Refer to the stock Battle Scars on the Character Sheet for specific systems.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • You may opt to inflict a Battle Scar that is less severe than what your Outcome allows.
  • Remember: A Contractor’s Body rating is reduced by 1 for each Battle Scar after their fourth.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

JPM's "Big Boss" Suit-Coat

Created by JPM (Jackson Pierce Morgan), looted by Gary Brown.
A large XXXL Suit-Overcoat made of black-Scottish-tweed-wool wornby JPM. This overcoat is double-breasted, and can close at the collar, it features actaul golden buttons and closing clasps, a multitude of inner pockets, waist-pockets, belt loops for a belt, military-style shoulder flaps, inner-pocket button flap pockets, and in-general looks very lavish and pompous. Among many properties, it beads water as it's coated with a special oil and that's just how tweed wool works.

JPM is able to weave and smith the protection of the rich and upper class, and the privilege of the rich and upper class, into suits he crafts of fine Scottish tweed wool... unfortunately, like many things in life, these only benefit the rich and wealthy.


You gain the following benefits as long as you are rich (Rich Asset) and you are wearing this Artifact.

You have 5 Armor, which only reduces damage taken from bullets. Any armor piercing effects from bullets are ignored. Armor from multiple sources does not stack. Called Shots may circumvent your Armor, depending on its coverage.

Grim Necklace

Created and held by Neil Ashworth.
A silvery necklace, with a small, deep red gem set in the middle of it. The surrounding metal seems tinged a darker shade.

The deep red gem at the centre of the necklace releases a cloud of black miasma, which coalesces into the form of a horse, capable of running long distances without tiring, or needing food or water. It can be recalled into the necklace at will.


This Artifact can be used as a Shadow Horse. It is roughly the same size as a Shadow Horse but can be collapsed into a necklace with a deep red gem in the centre and concealed. Collapsing or expanding it costs a Quick Action.

This Shadow Horse has Plate Armour, Saddle, Reins. Any roll to pilot this vehicle receives +2 dice.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Flying Solo: Your vehicle cannot have any passengers.

  • If there is not enough free space to expand the object, it cannot be expanded.

The Stick

Created by Daisy Lag (Fiona Lepre), given to Mary Alice.
Currently Destroyed.
A large handgun that almost looks more like a sawed-off shotgun.

Object Lesson

Created by Guy Webber, given to Bryan Bosch.
A simple Damascus steel ring. The image of a folded paper crane is etched into the patterned metal. Inside, it’s inlaid with fractal knot patterns made of electrum wire. An engraving in tiny font along the edge reads “Be Patient, Be Decisive, Dream.”

The initial design was the most complicated part, really. Once an object has been embedded with the complex fractal knot pattern, made of otherwise ordinary electrum wire, Guy suffuses the wire with extra-dimensional energies. Getting the right energies, and getting them to stick, can take some doing. The wire then guides the magic, which responds readily to a simple flex of intent.
When called upon, space twists into a fractal knot that expands from the wire, distorting perceptions of the object and surrounding space. As if it had always been there, one object is replaced by another, and space returns to its natural state.
No complicated on-the-fly calculations necessary.

With help from a 5-hour Energy value pack, a crash course in CAD software, and a local CNC machine, Guy was able to design the first functioning prototype, a proof of concept for one of his more outlandish ideas.

Space is locally expanded in an additional dimension, an otherwise unnoticeable effect that creates a kind of pocket space, perfect for storing items. The magic is limited in its functionality, and the spatial membrane is somewhat stubborn, so withdrawing an item requires an anchor. By pulling on the desired item and anchor at the same time, the magic can cause them to switch places with minimal strain.


Spend a Quick Action.

You may withdraw an item from your stash, or add an item that is within arm’s reach to your stash. You may only stash targets which are in your possession, grappled, or otherwise controlled by you.

You may store Objects in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters), and you may store up to 3 things at a time.

You may choose to equip any equipment you withdraw at no additional cost.

Whenever you withdraw an Object from your Stash, you must immediately Stash another object to replace it. You may only stash objects you are attuned to. Attuning an object requires one minute of physical contact.

  • "Equip" refers to drawing a gun, putting on a piece of armor, etc.
  • Containers which hold multiple things may count as a single item so long as the things within are generally packaged together. For instance, you may stash a clip full of bullets, a medical kit full of medical supplies, or a box of crackers, but you cannot stash a backpack full of miscellaneous equipment.
  • You may only attempt to store Objects which are free-standing and disconnected from other things. The use of this Effect will not allow you to sever any connections holding an Object in place.
  • The Maximum Object Size parameter is intended to roughly capture the weight / size restriction of items and isn’t intended to restrict shape. GM discretion is advised. A human being is level 4 in the Maximum Object Size parameter.
