Ring of Power

Created and held by Jules.
a silver wedding ring

While Jules bears the Seal of Nephthys, the Goddess herself protects him, until such a time as he has avenged his family & returned the stolen artifacts of the Goddess. When Jules would be harmed one can see slender arms composed of shadows that ward off the attack. Even ethereal attacks can be thwarted by the Embrace of Darkness. When employing his Defensive Curl this effect is even more pronounced, with the wings of the Goddess enfolding him completely in a display of otherworldly power.

Those that bear the blessing of Nephthys, Goddess of Darkness, may defy the will of Geb, God of the Earth, running or walking up vertical surfaces or even sitting comfortably on the ceiling.

Long Tom

Created and held by Icarus Onigiri.
A sniper rifle of a dark design, manufactured for recon and stealth with its innate function of folding into a fake briefcase.

The signature weapon of the sniper Icarus: Long Tom. A powerful cybernetic sniper rifle that uses nearby energy or magic in place of kinetic bullets to fire away. On its side is a dial that you have to set to the feet away the target is. Too close and it'll deal subpar damage. Too far and it'll deal above average damage. But get it just right, and the damage will be huge. One of the nice ways this weapon stays hidden is its ability to fold into the form of a briefcase-- fake, of course, and unable to contain anything other than itself.


This Artifact cannot be broken.
