Ena's Godsend "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger."

1
Requires Seasoned
This Artifact grants you grants you protection against attacks.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.

Being so connected to the Well, Luci had long earned its protection from outside harm, but has grown to instead decide on shedding that facet from herself to infuse that energy into other objects or artifacts.

Rolling inky shadow rolls around on the inside of the object it's been infused into- commonly a piece of clothing. If that piece of clothing is hit by an attack, the shadowy refuse inside of the clothing will reflexively react, similar to reactive armor. It is concealed in this circumstance. If this artifact is upgraded to allow called shots not to be circumvented, shadowy blobs of ink will sprout from the various openings in the clothing piece to swat aside attacks.


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

You have 6 Armor, which reduces incoming damage from all sources of physical attack except Primarily Light-Based Attacks i.e. fire, incendiary rounds, holy attacks. Armor from multiple sources does not stack. Called Shots may circumvent your Armor, depending on its coverage.

Any time your Armor prevents damage, your total Armor rating is temporarily decreased by 1. Whenever you go two Rounds without preventing any damage, it is restored back to its full value.

  • Armor recharging happens automatically and does not require an Action.
