Community Artifacts

Qigong

Created by Prototype, looted by Amaranth Barclay.

These coins create a subtle ringing noise while worn by someone who is injured. This noise persists until the item is removed or all wounds are healed.

Digging up his master's items of what he left to Fonzie before he passed away, he has found a particular trinket, 5 coins that shine and glow and are even a custom made coins, a masterwork of details and a symbol of Qi on each of them as they are all tied together with a red string, easily to be hanged from something or tied onto something else. Whoever holds it in their possession feels a new sense of vigor as old wounds heal.

This trinket was taken by Amaranth from the man's body after an ill-fated suggestion to throw him 100 feet away into army of undead contractors. It did not end well.


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

Any Injury you receive heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level every 6 hours. Any Injuries you receive while this Effect is active automatically count as a successful Proper Stabilization and do not deteriorate further. Any Battle Scars caused by such an Injury will heal with the Injury.

You may Exert your Mind and spend an Action to reduce the Severity of one of your Injuries by 2. Does not affect Injuries suffered as an activation cost for Effects.

You may choose to heal any Battle Scar on yourself that is not caused by an Injury. Recovery takes one day, and the Battle Scar affects you fully until that time.

Minerva's Illuminati Illuminator

Created and held by Dominic West.
A pen that when held to another object draws energy from the holder, absorbing nutrients to fuel the creation of them creating a camera lens on the item nearly imperceptible to the naked eye

Dominic has learned to tap into the bugs, cameras so tiny as to be microscopic, in the world around him. Proving that he was right yet again! The Illuminati does indeed have eyes, ears, and all other manners of things everywhere! He doesn't know how or when they started planting them, but they did and they are even within the deepest sanctum and within your most trusted devices. Yet, now he needs to worry no longer for through the wondrous enlightenment he was granted he has figured out their subroutines and gained the ability to co-opt this technology most foul for the resistance!


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a target within 10 feet.

You place a ward, which is fixed to a target Object that can be moved and repositioned. You can hear and see through the ward as though you were standing at its location. You may have at most 3 wards running at once.

The ward requires Concentration to monitor, though it will remain active until you deactivate it. It can be detected with a roll and destroyed through mundane means.

Your Ward records all activity it observes, regardless of whether or not you are actively monitoring it. This recording can be played back and referenced later.

You may communicate through your ward, though doing so will reveal its presence.

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

You may only use this Effect once per day.

  • Your ward's recording is maintained even if your Ward is destroyed.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Booster Bracer

Created and held by Polamedes.
A thin sleeve of stretchy material that extends up one arm. It's black with blue thread woven through it and kind of a metallic sheen despite looking and acting like spandex.

Polamedes places his hand on a person or object. The nanobots making up the arm sleeve start to disassemble and become loose. They surge down the outstretched arm pulling with them long strands of polamedes skin. underneath the skin threads are small glowing dots hidden under the dermis serving as connection points. The bots take the skin trails and start connecting them to the target that will be upgraded. Burrowing new holes and inserting the strands of skin as long tensile wires of flesh. Once the skin wires are all connected surges of blue light travel from Pol to the target transmitting data and nanomachines into the new vessel. Once in their new host the nanomachines balloon the flesh and are seen squirming around both in the area to be upgraded as well as migrating their way northward to the brain in order to establish the new neural pathways needed to connect to the augmented area. Once the augment is finished the fleshwires dissolve into a puddle of blood and sparking electricity for a few seconds before dissolving completely and reforming. The new mass of bugs crawls its way back towards polamedes and reassembles into the sleeve covering his right arm.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Living or Animate target within arm's reach. The target can easily Resist.

You may add one augmentation to your target. Each augmentation counts as a Trauma and can have exactly one of the following Effects:

  • Specialized: You receive +2 dice to a particular non-combat Action.
  • Environmental Adaptation: You do not suffer harm from heat, cold, pressure, or lack of oxygen in a particular environment, provided that challenge normally exists in that environment.
  • Implanted Tool: You have access to the functionality of some common Device at all times. The selected Device can be no larger than a motorcycle helmet.
  • Armor: You have 2 Armor at all times. As always, Armor from multiple sources does not stack.
  • Pouch: Part of your body functions as a hidden pocket. It can hold no more than a briefcase (15 liters).
  • Zippy: Your Free Movement is increased by 10 feet.
  • Maws and Claws: Your unarmed attacks do +2 Weapon Damage instead of -1.

The augmentations you provide are not outwardly visible nor obvious.

You may end this Effect prematurely as a Free Action.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see Flesh Wires.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
  • Remember: A Contractor’s Body rating is reduced by 1 for each Battle Scar after their fourth.
  • You may not augment targets with pouches or implanted devices that are larger than they are.
  • Targets without Body ratings may have a maximum of 4 augmentations.
  • 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.

Blackout

Created and held by Grimm Black.
It just looks like your old average pistol.

It fires and reloads like a normal gun. But when the gun changes into a different type it will expand and morph into the shape of the specific gun. For it to transform, Grimm has to mentally picture the gun and all of its components.


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

Attack by rolling Dexterity + Firearms, Difficulty 6. Successful attacks deal 1 Weapon Damage +2 Bonus Damage. The target's Armor is fully effective against this damage.

Possession of this Artifact causes the following Trauma to manifest over the course of a day: Trauma Roll or I have to kill someone to undraw the gun. If you lose possession of this Artifact, the Trauma heals over the course of the next month.

You also gain the following effects:

  • You may spend a Quick Action to change this firearm's base stats into those of any other basic firearm.
  • Quick Fingers: Drawing your weapon is a Free Action as long as it is on your person. You may reload as a Free Action.
  • Silencer: Shots you fire can be made silent at will.

  • Changing this weapon's base type affects its range, Weapon Damage, concealability, and roll. Other mechanics of the chosen base firearm (such as the tripod requirement for sniper rifles) apply.
  • 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.

An attachment added to blackout that allows the wielder of the gun to generate a barrier that protect them. It appears like a little cotter pin on the right side of the gun. When pulled the shield expands to surround the wielder.


Expend a point of Battery and spend an Action to activate. Roll Dexterity + Firearms at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you create a barrier around yourself, which absorbs the next Outcome + 2 Damage. The Damage reduction from the barrier is applied before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration. You may only have 1 active barrier at a time.

The barrier will fall after two hours, or if it absorbs the full amount of Damage. When a barrier falls, you cannot use this Effect again for a minimum of 2 Rounds.

Tranquility

Created and held by Vergil Arrior.
The heroes sword, and a blessing from Odessa.

A legendary technique passed down to the inheritor of the hero's sword. Giving them the ability to spin violently and create a current of spectral energy that banishes foes around them, though such violent spinning can often leave the hero rather dizzy.


Expend a point of Battery and spend an Action. The area within 25 feet of you immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll Charisma + Melee at Difficulty 6. Targets inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total Damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 25 feet of you with Damage equal to your Outcome + 4. Armor is fully effective against this Damage. If you botched the activation roll, you will also take full Damage from the blast, otherwise it will not hurt you.

  • 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.

The glittering blue fairy wing hilted blade of the champion of dreams. Vergil has finally earned enough skill to call this his own and has retrieved it from the mausoleum of heroes eternal rest. The blade glows lightly when swung, and on contact with an evil person will leave the wound glowing lightly blue to signify that the magics have done their work.
