Legendary Artifact

Spear of the Wild Hunt

Created by Colvin Whistler, looted by Enteln keller.
A spear with an obsidian spear tip that draws in the light around it, its iron shaft is engraved with scenes of the legend of the Wild Hunt, oft lead by different figures (Wodan, Siegfried, Gwyn ap Nudd, etc.)

Colvin takes off his necklace, and its chains seem to melt around his hand, the metal reforming and expanding into a spear. Engraved along the spear’s length are figures of legend (Siegfried, Odin, even King Arthur) hunting things down across a black expanse of sky. As he thrusts with the spear, the obsidian tip of the spear pierces through the shaft of his opponent’s weapon, breaking it into pieces that are strangely sucked, like the light around it, into the inky darkness of the spearhead.

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.


This Artifact can be used as a thrusting sword. It is roughly the same size as a thrusting sword but can be collapsed into An iron thin chain necklace which has an engraved steel pendant of a hunting hound, wreathed in flames, on the end of it. and concealed. Collapsing or expanding it costs a Quick Action.

Attack by rolling Dexterity + Melee, Difficulty 6. Successful attacks deal Contested Outcome +5 Weapon Damage. The target's Armor is fully effective against this damage.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Bane: Injuries dealt to Fae/Fairies, and their blooded descendants are increased by 2 Severity levels.
  • Blade Breaker: If you successfully Defend against a melee attack or if an opponent is unsuccessful at Defending against your melee attack, you may break your opponent's weapon.

  • If there is not enough free space to expand the object, it cannot be expanded. You cannot expand this Object as an attack.
  • Reminder: additional Weapon Damage granted by this Effect does not stack with any other bonus to Weapon Damage. Instead the largest bonus is used.

This Effect activates whenever Being Attacked. It does not require an Action or Exertion. Select a Animate target within 20 feet. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour. Roll Intellect + Medicine at Difficulty 7.

If you succeed, the target will suffer a dice penalty equal to the Outcome for the next 3 Rounds. Dice pools may be reduced all the way down to 0 by this penalty. This breaks Concentration.

You may Exert your Mind and spend a Reaction to contest an Action someone is taking. Roll Intellect + Medicine at Difficulty 7. Subtract your Outcome from theirs, and they use the Contested Outcome to determine if their Action succeeds.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • This Penalty is not removed if a character Exerts their Mind to ignore penalty.
  • If a character has a dice pool reduced to 0, they cannot attempt that action.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend 1 minute to activate. Choose a specific Injury on yourself that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Medicine at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

  • Unstabilized wounds do not degenerate during treatment.

Alterations you make must evoke new found respect for life.

The period is chosen either by time (i.e. “last Friday night”) or by reference to a specific event (i.e. “when the murder occurred”).
