The Interpretor Hey little mama lemme whisper in your ear

1
This Artifact grants you the power to communicate with humans and Sapient beings.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.
(It is clear that you are communicating with the target. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

You turn on and turn up the volume of your wireless headphones and they surge with thick black shadows before dying down when the cast ends. For the next ten minutes your shadow will whisper translations from any sapient target around you as well as taking control of the motor control of your mouth when you speak, allowing you to speak flawlessly in whatever language your target speaks.

When concerning other facets of communication, your shadow will interpret anything you see to you in real time.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you will incorrectly interpret and only translate racial slurs and taboo words. Involuntary words of toxicity will escape your mouth and those spoken to will be compelled to physically retaliate. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect.

You may understand and communicate to humans and Sapient beings as if you are fluent in a relevant language for the next ten minutes.

This also includes understanding any recorded communications from the relevant targets, including writings, scent trails, etc.

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

  • The target of "human" refers to any target that speaks a human language.
  • When reading written communications, you get no information beyond what the writer was intending to communicate.

This Artifact can change its appearance. When not transformed, it is roughly the same size as a vehicle but can be collapsed into a haunted object and concealed. Collapsing or expanding it costs a Quick Action.

Spend a Quick Action to activate. This Effect cannot be used unless the item is haunted. This Artifact changes its appearance into an Object within the category of Vehicles. This lasts until you decide to end the Effect, which may be done as a Free Action.

The new object's appearance can mimic specific items (such as a particular painting, a certain person’s ID, etc), but must be of a similar size and weight to this Artifact.

The new appearance is illusory; it will hold up to scrutiny, but its composition is not altered and it gains no new functionality. Any attempt to use it for a function which it cannot perform (for instance, making bread look like a knife and then trying to stab someone) will cause the illusion to fail or allow a Perception check to see through the illusion, at the GM's discretion.

When used as identification and scanned, the scanner will act appropriately and bring up appropriate generic information. Further searches for the identity in the computer will turn up no results.

  • If there is not enough free space to expand the object, it cannot be expanded. You cannot expand this Object as an attack.

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

You have 3 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.

Hey there, I'm Harold Ford, Vice president of Ford Motors and president of Metalcraft™. Our boys at the lab where doing some market research and you know what they found? All of you people suck at repair work! I told my boys to be nicer to my fellow contractors but they insist, all you guys know how to do is investigate and shoot!

So I told my boys: Maybe the problem isn't the contractors it's the fucking tools you guys are making! I mean Jesus, can't I just have a gun that repairs my car?! So I got my boys working on that - They said it was impossible, and I said they're just lazy! A few months later they come back with this bad boy - Check it out!
I call it - the repair-o-gun! It looks like a ordinary device, but with a little pull of a switch and BANG BANG BANG! I LOVE YOU REPAIR-O-GUN! AAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I LOVE THIS THING! I mean, next time anything breaks, you can just shoot it! Let's face it, you already solve most of your problems that way! Best-in-class repair device, patented nanotubular meshing. I don't understand how it works and neither do you!

  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.
