Emergency Power-Armor "Keepin' fir arsehol's lads!"

This Artifact grants you the power to temporarily transform into the Dwarven Sentinal.
Used by Sean McAlister, Created by PoisedIvyT_T.
(While you are the Dwarven Sentinal, you are obviously transformed and unusual. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

Meant to be worn as a technological Armband: he presses onto a button and with a fiery burst of sparks, forged armor-plates forms into some sort of steampunk-fantasy-esque power armor.

Unreliable? I haven't field tested it yet.

Draining? There's a hear and air-circulation issue I'm working on it right now.

Metal Automechanical: (Flak Jacket 3 Armor)

Battle-Axe: (Great-Axe +3 Damage)

Expend a point of Battery and spend a Quick Action. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour.

You transform into the Dwarven Sentinal for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are the Dwarven Sentinal, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. Reverting from your Alternate Form cannot cause your existing Injuries to kill you. Instead, you remain Incapacitated.

While transformed, your Attributes are the same. Your Penalty is reduced by 2.

While transformed, instead of your normal clothes and equipment, you are equipped with: 6 ft Tall Automechanical with a battle-axe.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk (15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

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

If you would take an Injury that would kill you, you don’t die. Instead, you survive in an Incapacitated state. Your body leaves behind a token. You remain incapacitated until the following ritual is performed with the token: The Rune of Revival must be placed in the mouth of the corpse as they are given a last rite, the eyes closed and arms crossed over their chest.

If, while you are unconscious, your wound level rises above your rating in Body + ________, or if you take an Injury with Severity greater than your rating in ________, you die. After you return, the Injury that would have killed you, as well as any Injuries sustained while Incapacitated, are healed. Battle scars obtained during this time remain.

With his Mind/machine interface in place, Doctor Lazcowicz is now experimenting with new functions. In this case, after extruding a small number of nanites into an existing computer, smartphone, or smartwatch he can use them to reconstruct the internals of the device. Enhancing onboard cameras into medical scanners and using the raw materials of the circuit boards within to construct a nanite factory, the device now acts as a controller and dispenser for specialized nanite piles that will reconstruct scarred and damaged body parts at a cellular level to make them good as new! with their micronized technology, they can even preserve the original function of the device by recreating its circuitry on a nanotic scale. Mundane functions still require normal power though, and trying to power on the device when the mundane battery is dead will allow only use of the "Reconstruction" app.

Attempting to dispense nanites while charging the normal battery is... ill advised.

Expend a point of Battery and spend an hour. Select a Battle Scar on yourself to treat.

The treated Battle Scar heals as you finish activating this Effect.

These magical markings let the body synthesize an unknown chemical which keeps the glymphatic system active during waking hours, so body and mind are able to keep functioning without restriction.

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

You no longer require any sleep in order to survive. You no longer age naturally, and supernatural attempts to age you fail.

You may spend one minute entering a state of hibernation, during which you are inanimate and unaffected by any requirements for life. You may still perceive the outside world and may spend 3 Rounds ‘waking up’ to end it.

Expend a point of Battery and spend an Action to activate. Select a Living target within 45 feet. This Effect cannot be used unless Must have at least 4 or 5 points in Intellect.. Roll Intellect + Firearms Difficulty 6. The target may contest by rolling to Dodge or Defend as a Reaction, Difficulty 6.

If the contested Outcome is positive, the target takes that much damage plus 1. The target's material Armor is completely ignored.

  • "Material Armor" includes armor from equipment but not Armor from Mythic Brawn, barrier, or mystical armor.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Expend a point of Battery and spend one minute.

You are obscured in one of the following manners. Lasts 30 minutes.

  • Sight:You are partially obscured from being noticed by sight. All attempts to detect you using sight are rolled at a -3 dice penalty, and all attempts to detect you where sight would assist are rolled at -1 penalty. Anyone who detects you cannot determine any visual details about you beyond your general shape.

While this Effect is active, any Effect that would obscure you from other, additional senses fails automatically. If someone discovers you, this Effect will not help you hide from them for the next minute. This Effect does not end early when you activate an obvious Effect, attack, or receive an Injury.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Tiny stadium bugs flipping skin cards.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
