Crafted Artifact

D.W.A.F. Armband Mk. 1

Created and held by Sean McAlister.
Deployable Weapon and Armored Fighter. Looks to be a bronze and copper armband with technological systems in place to operate the control functions.

Meant to be worn as a technological Armband: he presses onto a button and with a fiery burst of sparks, forged armor-plates forms into some sort of steampunk-fantasy-esque power armor.

Unreliable? I haven't field tested it yet.

Draining? There's a hear and air-circulation issue I'm working on it right now.

Metal Automechanical: (Flak Jacket 3 Armor)

Battle-Axe: (Great-Axe +3 Damage)

Expend a point of Battery and spend a Quick Action. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour.

You transform into the Dwarven Sentinal for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are the Dwarven Sentinal, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. Reverting from your Alternate Form cannot cause your existing Injuries to kill you. Instead, you remain Incapacitated.

While transformed, your Attributes are the same. Your Penalty is reduced by 2.

While transformed, instead of your normal clothes and equipment, you are equipped with: 6 ft Tall Automechanical with a battle-axe.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk (15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

The Gun itself is possessed by the spirit of one of Somm's ancestors, an ancient CCP soldier, and it occasionally likes to give Somm advice. The Ghost Gun is capable of folding down into a (de)extendable Dizi flute, and being played just like one.

Somm's flute folds out into a large machinegun, and as he deploys it, he shoulders it and immediately starts to spray through the wall. The gun appears to be also... talking? as it compliment's Somm's accuracy and tact.

Polamedes Cortical Stacks

Created by Dominic West, given to Polamedes.
A small metal neckplate that lays flat against the back of the neck. At the top of it is a small needle connected to a module that when activated punctures and connects directly to the brainstem.

Not foolproof yet, but the silvery metal implant is placed along the back of the neck and runs up toward the base of the skull. Encoding data constantly from the brain via its connection, the implant is ready at all times to provide all data required to recreate the user. So long as the implant is taken to a suitable computing device, it can process the information and, using Dominic's patented energy into matter technology, create a new body for the subject on the spot. Though it does leave the question unanswered as to whether or not it's the same person or an entirely new person created in the image of the person who came before.

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

If you would take an Injury that would kill you, you don’t die. Instead, you survive in an Incapacitated state, though you appear dead to any means of detecting life. Your body leaves behind a token. You remain incapacitated until the following ritual is performed with the token: A cortical stack chip in the implant located at the base of the skull, and it must be uploaded to a computer wherein you are digitally copied.

While Incapacitated, your only weakness is An electrical shock to the cortical stack, and if you take Damage from it, you will die. Damage from other sources will still be dealt and can cause Battle Scars, but will only kill you if your body is destroyed completely. If your weakness is not immediately obvious, attackers may roll to discover it. After you return, the Injury that would have killed you, as well as any Injuries sustained while Incapacitated, are healed. Battle scars obtained during this time remain.

Created and held by Osmand "Oz" Stark.
A dark stained wooden handle holds this white hot steel in place.

Osmand reaches for his neck and holds his necklace as a momento for those lost in the mines. His rage builds up and releases a white hot pickaxe from his grip in a burst of dust and grime.

Osmand swings the pickaxe with such might that the white hot metal returns to solidity on every swing, reverting back and forth and Osmand mines through walls and creatures.
