Legendary Artifact

Mind Ring

Created and held by Chloe Burke.
A slender gold ring

This gold ring twists and turns while Chloe sleeps.


This Artifact cannot be broken.

If this Artifact is lost and in no one’s possession, it finds its way back to its creator during the next Downtime.

Anyone but this Artifact's creator must Exert their Mind to wear this artifact or activate any of its Effects.

If this Artifact is used by someone other than its creator, its creator is alerted and learns the user's appearance, direction, and distance at that moment. The creator may use a single investigation Effect on them once at any range. The user gets the feeling that they are being watched.

This Artifact's creator must have it with them to have restful sleep. They cannot regain Mind or Source while separated from this Artifact.

  • "Cannot be broken" means that damage cannot render the Artifact's Effects unusable, nor can it cease to be used for its primary mundane purpose, if it has one.

The Scroll Of Ancient Asclepius

Created by Isaac King, given to David Vance.
Currently At home.
This is a scroll written on magically fortified papyrus that just seems to glimmer with a sickening luster. Just touching it is enough to send a chill down one’s spine. The writing on it is written in Ancient Greek, which the user can only read once they are attuned to it. Or they know Ancient Greek.

When used on a corpse the scroll is unraveled and the user speaks out the phrase “Λύψε στη θέλησή μου πεσμένη, δεν είναι ακόμα η ώρα σου να πεθάνεις. Ελάτε σε αυτόν τον κόσμο και υπηρετήστε έναν σκοπό μεγαλύτερο από εσάς!”

The targeted corpse in question will suddenly rise from the dead laced in a purple darkening aura slowly seeping into the body and igniting the eyes with a false life.


Exert your Mind and spend one minute. Select a Dead target within arm's reach that has died within the last month.

Your target rises as an Animate being. The raised creature is totally mindless, with no memory of its past life or hint of its old personality. They cannot communicate. They will follow any command you speak.

The creature lasts for eight hours or until it dies again. It is revived at full health. Any Injuries it had in life are not accounted for when determining its penalties or progression towards re-death, though they may affect its ability to perform certain actions at GM's discretion.

Raised creatures have their Abilities set to the same that they were in life. Their Charisma and Intellect are set to 1, but their Dexterity, Brawn and Perception are the same as they had in life. A raised creature cannot use any Effects.

Your revived targets deal 2 Weapon Damage with their unarmed attacks.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

Ring of Stasis

Created and held by Harold Ford.
A small, nondescript iron ring. It is difficult to remove.

To most, the wearer appears mundane. But there are a few subtle symptoms: They don't seem to breath, eat, sleep. And they don't seem to change much either...

The devil grinned down at the man.
"In return for your soul upon death, I will grant you a ring of great power"
"Can I decide the power?" The man asked.
"But of course" The devil replied
"Deal, then. I choose that I never needed to age, sleep, eat, or drink."
The devil slipped the ring onto the man's finger.
"Ah-ha!" said the man "Now I will lock myself away with thousands of books and live forever"

The devil laughed for a moment, then stabbed the man in the stomach. It is said the ring remains, much sought after by those who fear death.


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

You no longer require any food, water, sleep, or air in order to survive. You no longer age naturally, and supernatural attempts to age you fail.

Ambergris

Created and held by Billy Chance.
A flame spirit made from a little of Billy's phoenix fire. Briefly stolen, but returned at last.

Ambergris is a once living horse empowered by Billy's fire, and either takes its original form, a flaming horse, or that given to it by Tommy Morse, a motorcycle with an explosive exhaust.


This Artifact can be used as a motorcycle or horse. It is roughly the same size as a motorcycle or horse but can be collapsed into a whistle and concealed. Collapsing or expanding it costs a Quick Action.

This motorcycle or horse has flaming accents and a malleable form. Any roll to pilot this vehicle receives +2 dice.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Afterburner: Your vehicle has a 25% faster top speed and you may Exert your Mind to accelerate to its top speed in a single Round.
  • Daredevil: Damage you and your passengers take from vehicle collisions is halved (rounded up) and the result is limited to a maximum of 5.
  • Mind of its Own: This vehicle can move and take Actions without you driving it. It has seven dice for all Drive rolls.
  • No Muffler: Any stealth rolls made to hide your vehicle automatically fail, and any rolls made to notice your vehicle automatically succeed.

This item is a living thing. It counts as a Creature when targeted. If destroyed or abandoned for more than two days, it dies and becomes unusable.

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

Rune-Inscribed Crown

Created and held by Jacob Sterns.
A plain stainless steel crown with grey runes carved into it.

An object brandishing these neuron-like engravings infuses the wearer with a magical energy that let's them stay mentally active for 24 hours a day. The user can also decide to put themselves into a sleep-like full body stasis, making them independent from any need for resources, while keeping their mind awake.
If you want to study faster, 30% more waking hours are a very efficient way to do it.

These magical markings let the body synthesize an unknown chemical which keeps the glymphatic system active during waking hours, so body and mind are able to keep functioning without restriction.


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

You no longer require any sleep in order to survive. You no longer age naturally, and supernatural attempts to age you fail.

You may spend one minute entering a state of hibernation, during which you are inanimate and unaffected by any requirements for life. You may still perceive the outside world and may spend 3 Rounds ‘waking up’ to end it.

Automatic Defense Turret Kit

Created and held by Bob Hope.
A small drawstring bag containing the materials for a Automatic Defense Turret

This Advanced Remote Drone Artificial Kit can provide the materials and know-how to create a very advanced, shoulder-mounted turret.


Exert your Mind and spend two Actions performing the following ritual: Assemble a turret from parts. You must maintain Concentration while activating this Effect, and it fails if you are interrupted.

Summon a single Tiny Shoulder-Mounted Turret at your location. They will last until they are destroyed. They are controlled by the GM but will follow any commands you give. This Artifact may have at most 1 minion active at a time.

  • Attacking: Minions can make ranged attacks at targets up to 30 feet away with 5 dice to attack and +1 Damage.
  • Body: Minions have 4 Body.
  • Movement: Minions cannot move.

The Coffin

"The Coffin" is a black, alligator-skin briefcase made to look like its namesake. The interior is coated in red, quilted leather. It is quite a bit larger on the inside, appearing to stretch backwards like a dark passageway.

This Artifact can be used as a container. It is roughly the same size as a alligator-skin briefcase and just as difficult to conceal. Unless you are storing something commonly found in coffins, this Artifact behaves as its mundane counterpart.

Your alligator-skin briefcase holds 5 times what it normally could. Objects stored inside are weightless.

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

If your alligator-skin briefcase is destroyed, things inside may get out, and it will cease to function until it is repaired.

You may change the type of your container between Contracts.

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

  • You cannot change the container's type if you are not in possession of it.
  • There is no cost to use your container.

This Artifact can change its appearance. When not transformed, it is roughly the same size as a passport and just as difficult to conceal.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. This Artifact changes its appearance into an Object within the category of forms of identification. This lasts until you decide to end the Effect, which may be done as a Free Action.

The new object's appearance can mimic specific items (such as a particular painting, a certain person’s ID, etc), but must be of a similar size and weight to this Artifact.

The new appearance is illusory; it will hold up to scrutiny, but its composition is not altered and it gains no new functionality. Any attempt to use it for a function which it cannot perform (for instance, making bread look like a knife and then trying to stab someone) will cause the illusion to fail or allow a Perception check to see through the illusion, at the GM's discretion.

255TE "Lancer" Rife

A metallic disk that, with the press of a button, expands into a futuristic-looking rifle.

This Artifact can be used as a rifle. It is roughly the same size as a rifle but can be collapsed into a metallic disk and concealed. Collapsing or expanding it costs a Quick Action.

Attack by rolling Dexterity + Firearms, Difficulty 6. Successful attacks deal Contested Outcome +4 Weapon Damage. The target's Armor is fully effective against this Damage.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Silencer: Shots you fire can be made silent at will.

  • If there is not enough free space to expand the object, it cannot be expanded. You cannot expand this Object as an attack.
  • Reminder: additional Weapon Damage granted by this Effect does not stack with any other bonus to Weapon Damage. Instead the largest bonus is used.
  • Rifles are +1 Difficulty to use in melee range. Sniper Rifles are +3 Difficulty to use without a tripod or in melee range. Setting up a tripod takes an Action.

Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend one minute. Select a Dead target within arm's reach with at least half its skeletal structure remaining. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.

Your target rises as an Animate being. The raised creature is totally mindless, with no memory of its past life or hint of its old personality. They cannot communicate. They will follow any command you speak.

The creature lasts for eight hours or until it dies again. It is revived at full health. Any Injuries it had in life are not accounted for when determining its penalties or progression towards re-death, though they may affect its ability to perform certain actions at GM's discretion.

Raised creatures have their Abilities set to the same that they were in life. Their Charisma and Intellect are set to 1, but their Dexterity, Brawn and Perception are the same as they had in life. A raised creature cannot use any Effects.

Destroying one of your zombies requires a called shot to the head or heart. All other Injuries zombies suffer result in Battle Scars only, limiting their mobility and effectiveness in other ways.

Your revived targets deal 2 Weapon Damage with their unarmed attacks.

  • The called shot requires 4 Outcome dealing 4+ Damage or 6 Outcome dealing 2+ Damage.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

This Artifact can change its appearance. When not transformed, it is roughly the same size as a passport and just as difficult to conceal.

Whenever you show this Artifact to someone, you may give a general description of an Object within the category of forms of identification, and anyone who hears the description and sees the Artifact will have their mind fill in the details to complete the illusion.

The way the Artifact is seen can mimic specific items (such as a particular painting, a certain person’s ID, etc), but must be of a similar size and weight to this Artifact.

The new appearance is illusory; it will hold up to scrutiny, but its composition is not altered and it gains no new functionality. Any attempt to use it for a function which it cannot perform (for instance, making bread look like a knife and then trying to stab someone) will cause the illusion to fail or allow a Perception check to see through the illusion, at the GM's discretion.
