Umbral Choir Coat of Mail

2
Requires Seasoned
The power to enhance your tools beyond mundane limits.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.
( You must actively and obviously be using Multi-Tool/Swiss Army Knife.)

Luci takes out her multi-tool and conducts rudimentary maintenance on an object, imbuing it with her shadow. It takes a lot out of her to use, but the result is usually worth it.

On firearms, her shadow will slink along the barrel and firing mechanism, making it far more efficient and adding its own kick to the fired bullet, making it deadlier while also assisting to manage recoil.

On melee weapons, the shadow slinks along the weapon with either barbs or thorns.

On armor, Luci's shadow hides under the armor and when a weapon or source of damage approaches, it seeps out and attempts to block or deflect the incoming damage.

This Effect cannot be used unless Luci must be in sufficient darkness or shade to cast this power.. You must actively and obviously use Multi-Tool/Swiss Army Knife to activate this Effect.

Dr. Skunk, a great inventor, knows exactly what to do whenever she needs to improve a mechanical item. It's as simple as taking a look at something and knowing *just* the right spot to strike.

Skunk examines the item she wishes to work on for a short amount of time, visualizing it completely in her mind, before gently tapping it in a specific place to greatly improve its functionality. Over the duration of the improvement, the item takes on a faint shimmer, as if its saturation has been raised in a photo editing software, as well as having all dirt and grime cleaned from its surface.
