Lith's Kiss The sidearm of the Stellar Navy has seen Fleet Officer Armitage though many a battle.

1
An extraordinary rifle.
Used by Henry Armitage, Created by Polymorph.

The weapon doesn't make any noise, just a flash from the barrel that leaves a blue-green afterglow on anyone's eyes, like looking into the sun for a moment.

A sophisticated piece of Stellar Navy technology, the MPKW 2-18 is the standard sidearm for Fleet Officers of Henry's rank. This one has seen Henry though most of his career, and has a storied, and in some cases sordid, history.

The sidearm has the ability to transform into the needed formfactor via integrated rapid manufacturing systems. It causes ablation of the target, and being a pure energy weapon is completely silent.

Lith has left a fragment of herself inside, and it talks to the user as they hold it, quietly, advising of tactical situations.


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