You leave a golden glow shaped like yourself at your location.

  • If you use this Effect to dodge as a Reaction, it succeeds without the need for a roll.
  • You may use your Free Movement on the Round you phase back in, but you cannot take an Action.

This, spear, engraved with scenes of the Wild Hunt, was initially the channel for the powers of a former damned spirit of the hunt, captured and enchained. That being had seen many leaders of the hunt come and go through its “lifetime”. With its taking from that being’s prison, the Spear lost most of its power. It seems to be reclaiming some of its history, however, in consuming the remains of Fae beings (the Fae are intimately intertwined with the history of the hunt, after all.).

One last note: This gift used a trophy from a Contract as the object for the artifact, and that spear trophy had the quirk of being unbreakable. It is completely up to individual GM’s whether they choose to uphold this quirk or ignore it.
