Prostetic eye "I can finally see"

3
Requires Seasoned
This Artifact grants you supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Jeremy Wesley, Created by jwesley123.
On Signature Item Jeremy's Glass Eye.
(You must wear or wield this Artifact plainly to receive these benefits.)

While wielding the Glass Eye, Grace's senses are VASTLY enhanced, seeing the warmth of the living, penetrating all darkness, & doing so up to two miles away.

Jeremy's greed is also carried over with the eye, & Grace finds it easy to find hidden valuables like a little magpie.


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

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Sight: You can see perfectly in dark and even pitch-black environments. You suffer no dice penalty due to darkness.
  • Sight: You can see things that are up to a mile away as though you were only standing twenty feet away, provided your view is unobstructed.
  • Thermal: You are able to "see" heat signatures within your line of sight.
  • Touch: You can pick up on subtle differences between textures with ease, and can immediately find what you are looking for when rummaging (digging through trash, finding a needle in a haystack, etc), assuming it is actually present.

Any senses which have been heightened cannot be overloaded. Battle Scars you receive cannot affect these senses.

  • Examples of overloading a sense include: an explosion causing temporary deafness, a bright light causing blindness, a sedative causing numbness, etc.
  • Your thermal vision allows you to judge temperatures of surfaces fairly accurately as long as they are within livable temperatures.

Maybe he gets approached by fans; young adults know of him (mostly in bigger cities with influencer crowds (like NYC or LA)); older persons, mostly those with kids, have heard of him or recognize his voice.
