Penalty

Permanent -1 to all saving throws. This compounds with each use. Can’t be removed with magic. Does not fade with time.

Known History

  • 1005-06-24 – Dmitri (Human Rogue/Wizard) Gift from Yehm in the Gentle Lands, Hollow World.

Artefact Traits

  • Handicap – This is an effect applied to all who pend PP while handling the item until the given time has passed.
  • Penalty – A penalty can be removed by a special downtime activity with discussion and approval by games master only. (limit once per game year)
  • Plane Locked – All artefacts cannot be taken through extra dimensional travel, this includes teleportation, fey step and dimensional travel.
  • Power Points (PP) – This is the amount of power points that the artefact can draw upon to use its abilities. All abilities with a PP cost have a chance of causing a penalty on a d20 equal to the cost. Use of PP also causes the wielder to reduce their maximum hit points by the PP spent. This lost hit points uses the Soul Burn mechanics from Secret Crafts.
  • Recharge – the amount of power points that the artefact will refresh over a set time.
  • Set Items – can be combined to form a more powerful item.
  • Team Item – can provide other powers if members of the part wield other items in the team set.

Design Details

Reduced the recharge from 5 per power level to 4 plus 1 per increase in power level, providing a maximum of half the total power returned in a long rest. This is make it work smoother, and not gain more power than it can hold. I also added 1 PP to the abilities that did not have a cost in the GM section.
