(You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

The Cross-Eye has further advanced, allowing the user to use it's latent nanotechnology to cloak the user in a special suit. This suit reflects light around the target, and softens all noise made by it. With this, a sniper could be right next to it's target or miles away, and they would never know


Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend an Action to activate.

You and any clothes or equipment you are wearing are partially obscured from sight for the next minute. All attempts to detect you using sight are rolled at a -3 dice penalty.

Entering Combat or being Injured does not cause the Effect to end early. Anyone you attack will immediately notice you; anyone else may re-roll to notice you each time you take a Combat action, at -1 Difficulty per Combat action you have taken. When the Effect ends, it is disabled for 1 hour.

  • GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact impacts of this Effect, particularly in conjunction with environmental factors. Standing still against a complex background may render you impossible to detect, and footprints in snow may make it easy. A chance to detect you is not guaranteed.

Summon a single rat at your location. They will last for an hour, or until they are destroyed. They are controlled by the GM but will follow any commands you give. You may have at most 1 minion active at a time.

Minions have 4 Body and can make melee range attacks with 5 dice to attack and +1 Damage. Your minions can move 20 feet per Round as Free Movement, and double that when performing an all-out Sprint.

You automatically detect all Ways (Links between universes) within 50 feet of you for the next ten minutes. You have a clear sense of both the distance and direction towards any detected items. You do not learn any details about the detected items.

Even if there are no Ways (Links between universes) within 50 feet of you, you become aware of the direction the closest one is in, as well as a rough sense of its distance from you.

The means by which any Ways (Links between universes) are hidden or disguised is made clear to you, as well as how to access them if they are secured. This includes objects secured via the Stash Effect.

You may levitate off the ground at two times your normal walking speed. The effect lasts for the next hour, though you may choose to end it at will.

While in the air, your move speed and encumbrance are based on your rating in Mind instead of your Brawn and Dexterity.

While this Effect is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions and cannot Concentrate.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • Your free Movement while levitating is now 5 + (5 x Mind) feet per round without incurring a dice penalty. You may extend your Movement by up to 20 extra feet, taking a -1 dice penalty for every 5 extra feet you travel.
  • Any penalties to dice or movement, including from Encumbrance, are applied as normal. If your movement is reduced to 0 due to encumbrance, you will begin to sink down to the ground.
  • You may activate this Effect while in midair, allowing you to slow and survive any free fall.

Exert your Mind and spend 1 minute to activate. You must actively and obviously use Glasses to activate this Effect. Choose a specific Injury on yourself that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Medicine at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

  • Unstabilized wounds do not degenerate during treatment.
