Crafted Artifact

(GAVE TO CEO OF WELLS FARGO) "Big Boss" Suit-Coat 1.0

Created by JPM (Jackson Pierce Morgan), given to Gary Brown.
The original replica, a "Big Boss" Suit-Coat made almost identical to JPM's... It has a JPM-logo on the back tag, black scottish tweed wool, double-breasted, full-closure, golden buttons, closing clasps, inner pockets, belt loops, military-style shoulder flaps, yada yada... fit for a mob-boss or any corporate emperor.

JPM is able to weave and smith the protection of the rich and upper class, and the privilege of the rich and upper class, into suits he crafts of fine Scottish tweed wool... unfortunately, like many things in life, these only benefit the rich and wealthy.

Reaper's Cloak

Created and held by "Widow" Stryker.
The Reapers Cloak, when gifted, can take the form of the wearer's preferences. In this case, Widow has gone back to her long black leather trench coat.

A reaper is always on the go, and can't always walk around with her signature tools. The cloak of the reaper is the answer. The ferry, the weapon, and the light beacon can always be at the reapers disposal when they are in need.


Spend a Quick Action.

You may withdraw an item from your stash, or add an item that is within 30 feet of you to your stash. You may only stash targets which are not possessed by someone else, and are freestanding and unattached. You may Exert your Mind and spend an Action to stash items in others' possession, but they automatically notice that you stole the item.

You may store Widow's artifacts in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters), and you may store up to 3 things at a time.

You may choose to equip any equipment you withdraw at no additional cost.

  • "Equip" refers to drawing a gun, putting on a piece of armor, etc.
  • Containers which hold multiple things may count as a single item so long as the things within are generally packaged together. For instance, you may stash a clip full of bullets, a medical kit full of medical supplies, or a box of crackers, but you cannot stash a backpack full of miscellaneous equipment.
  • You may only attempt to store Objects which are free-standing and disconnected from other things. The use of this Effect will not allow you to sever any connections holding an Object in place.
  • The Maximum Object Size parameter is intended to roughly capture the weight / size restriction of items and isn’t intended to restrict shape. GM discretion is advised. A human being is level 4 in the Maximum Object Size parameter.

Just as the reaper changes from this world to the next, the cloak of it's station does the same, somethings taking things with it. Incoming blows disappear, or partially slip into the shadow lands, leaving the wearer unharmed.


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

You have 6 Armor, which reduces incoming Damage. Armor from multiple sources does not stack.

Your Armor cannot be destroyed, and it always provides a minimum of 2 Armor regardless of any Armor penetration. It cannot be circumvented with Called Shots.

Any time your Armor prevents Damage, your Armor rating is temporarily decreased by 2. Whenever it goes five Rounds without preventing any Damage, it is restored back to its full value.

  • Armor recharging happens automatically and does not require an Action.

A Reaper in training's first tool is her blade, but the thing that truly marks her as a reaper is her cloak. Tailored to fit the reaper, Widow's cloak appears as a hooded Gothic leather trench coat. But just as the cloak signifies you as a reaper, it is also bound to the soul of the reaper.
