Crafted Artifact

David's SEAL

Created by Louis Dupont, given to David Silvana.
A wind up gameboy like contraptration that provides radar pings to the location of nearby energy clusters and artifacts

With a little elbow grease and 21st century know how, this artifact can help you find all sorts of strange things while out on a journey. Through the science that founded radar combined with a little magic, this item can find all sorts of strange things hidden in the world around you and when you are out and about on the hunt you'll be glad you brought your SEAL.

Louis's introduction to the contracting world being so rife with artifacts has made him question what else may be out there, and curious to find more, he's begun digging into ways to do so. This gift is the harbinger's answer to his request for a way to sate that curiosity.

Exert your Mind and spend at least two Actions performing the following ritual: Transcribing details about the area into the scanner to activate. You must maintain Concentration while activating this Effect, and it fails if you are interrupted.

You automatically detect the closest of any Artifacts and Supernatural Energy Concentrations within 50 feet of you for the next ten minutes. You have a clear sense of both the distance and direction towards the detected item. You get details of what each detected item is, as if you've glanced at each object.

Even if there are no Artifacts or Supernatural Energy Concentrations within 50 feet of you, you become aware of the direction the closest one is in, as well as a rough sense of its distance from you.

While this Effect is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions and cannot Concentrate.

Extracted Memory Type R

Created and held by Carl Baskins.
A band of unbroken scarlet metal. When used, some of the color drains from it.

The metal band around his waist vibrates, hums, and seethes. The color begins to drain from it, and move up Carl’s chest, then his arm. As he reaches a hand out to his target, the scarlet color flows from his hand into the object, and infuses it. The affected object turns obviously scarlet in color until the enhancement wears off. The belt loses some of its scarlet coloring (appearing clear and colorless in affected areas) until it regains that Source point.

Carl was taken to a room he no longer remembers, where using some device, personnel he has since forgotten the existence of used a memory extraction device to pull this item from his mind into reality. Though he does not realize it, this strange belt is intrinsically linked to the door he has nightmares of each night.

Expend a point of Battery and spend a minute to activate. Select a non-Alien Device within arm's reach. Cannot be used to improve Armor.

For the next day, your target receives 1 extra dice to all actions taken with its intended use.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Hyottoko's Mask

Created and held by Sasaki Nobutoshi.
Hyottoko represents good-luck, and is often quite the benevolent figure in Japanese mythology. Though the appearance of this carefully carved wooden mask depicting a bald man with a scrunched, skewed mouth can be seen as unsettling, the actor underneath is almost always aloof and jovial.

Sasaki spends a minute pondering where he might've left the desired item, rummaging through his duffel bag, looking in nearby cabinets, and checking underneath tables before miraculously rediscovering where he misplaced it! If the item is small enough, Sasaki can even find it in nonsensical places, such as behind people's ears, under their armpits, or inside of their socks. The item looks and feels completely real, though its quality may not always be perfect. If the desired item is not created as a permanent Eternium item, it will always be spontaneously lost after an hour of possession. As an example, the item could be lost by accidentally dropping it, putting it down for a moment and turning away, putting it in a uncommonly-used pocket, or slipping it underneath a piece of furniture. Once out of sight, the item completely vanishes, waiting to be found by Sasaki in a future random location.

Exert your Mind and spend 1 minute to activate.

Choose an Object which could fit inside a messenger bag (up to 10 liters). It cannot be Alien and must be relatively basic. You cannot create explosives. You cannot create firearms.

Roll Dexterity + Performance to fabricate up to 5 copies of your chosen Object. The Difficulty is assigned by the GM and depends on the specificity of your chosen Object. Created item lasts 1 hour.

You may keep up to three fabricated objects at a time that do not expire after an hour.

  • If you want to make a new object which doesn't expire and you already have 3, you must choose one of those three and let it expire. You can still fabricate temporary items when you are maxed out on permanent ones.
  • You can fabricate a container of something so long as it contains a single type of thing (such as a tank of water) or it is designed to be packaged together (such as a first aid kit).
  • For setting the difficulty for the fabrication roll, something like a "shirt" would be difficulty 5, whereas "Police uniform" would be difficulty 9. The Outcome determines overall quality and how well the item fits the request.

Economy Plus

Created and held by Mikey Rayes.
Red shipping crate

From the outside Mikey's shipping container appears to be normal. It measures 8 feet wide, 40 feet long, and 8 and a half feet tall. The back has a securely locked double doors. The Left side of the crate also opens. It can be unlocked and swung upwards to access the crate from the side. Either of these doors are supernaturally locked and can only be opened by Mikey himself. To do so he traces a precise symbol onto the surface of the lock with one of his picks, causing it to spring open.

The inside of the crate opens into a pocket dimension, 5 times larger than it would otherwise be, totaling to 1600 square feet of floor space. The pocket dimension appears as a garage with a concrete floor and steel walls. It is illuminated by a series of tube lights inset to the ceiling. By tracing the same symbol he uses to get in, Mikey is able to open any given section of the wall to either of the doors.

This Artifact can be used as a container. It is roughly the same size as a Shipping Container and just as difficult to conceal.

Your Shipping Container holds 5 times what it normally could. Objects stored inside are weightless.

Living things can be stored in your Shipping Container. They will have access to anything else inside and may attempt to break free, damaging or destroying the Shipping Container in the process.

If your Shipping Container is destroyed, things inside may get out, and it will cease to function until it is repaired.

Only you may open and close the container. Others can still destroy it to get at the contents

  • There is no cost to use your container.
