Thread Items:
The Paradox of Water (Completely Researched, Deed Complete, Rank 6 Thread woven)
Spoiler:
Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

A bracelet that seems to be cut from gleaming blue crystal. The facets sparkle too much and in ways they shouldn’t when light shines on it, which belies its true nature. Once a thread is attached, the bracelet slowly flows and shifts around the wearer’s wrist. The True water can move with almost imperceptible slowness, or become a torrent raging around the wearer’s arm. As the owner’s understanding of the bracelet increases, and their control over themselves improves, so does their control of the bracelet’s flow.

Strange runes reveal themselves to the owner within the bracelet as the thread rank increases. These runes shift and change; they seem to tell a story that reveals itself as the thread rank increases, but it is incomplete.


Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the bracelet’s Name.
Effect: The water’s flow reflects in the wearer, their movements are fluid and soft, yielding and moving around attacks. The wearer gains +1 to Physical Defense.

Thread Rank Two
Effect: The water’s flow wraps around their limbs, becoming hard and powerful. The wearer gains +1 to close combat Damage tests.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the locations of where the True water was harvested.
Effect: The water flows to the path of least resistance, never wasting its potential. For 1 Strain, the wearer reduces the penalties from Defensive Stance by 1 (typically to -2) until the end of the round.

Thread Rank Four
Effect: The water flows around the wearer, flowing around obstacles. The wearer gains +1 to close combat Attack tests.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge: The owner must begin to unravel the mysteries of the runes in the bracelet.
Deed: The owner must travel to the locations where the True water was harvested and entreat with a water spirit dwelling there.
Effect: Whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding overcomes whatever is rigid and hard. For 1 Strain, the wearer now reduces the penalties from Defensive Stance by 2 (typically to -1).

Thread Rank Six
Effect: Turbulent water obscures the truth beneath. Patience and stillness allow clarity of water and mind. The wearer can spend a minute in calming themselves, feeling the bracelet flowing against their skin and spend an additional Karma Point on a test that benefits from such clarity of thought—e.g., Knowledge and Research tests—at the gamemaster’s discretion.
Passion’s Pursuit (Completely Researched, Rank 6 Thread woven)
Spoiler:
Maximum Threads: 1
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

A necklace with twelve large beads of differing materials and unique carvings. The positions of the beads are fixed, with an image facing forward and runes carved behind. It’s notable how deep the carvings are, making them easy to discern by touch. Though any rough edges were long since worn smooth by the fingers of many over the years.

The beads and the symbols carved are as follows: brass with a hammer, glass with a dagger, gold with scales, granite with an upraised palm, rusted iron with an open gate, marble with a scroll, oak with a door, red hematite with a flame, silver with hands shaking, spruce with a harp, and willow with a willow tree.


Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the necklace’s Name.
Effect: The wearer gains +1 to Social Defense.

Thread Rank Two
Effect: The owner may store Karma Points up to the thread rank in the necklace. The wearer may transfer Karma Points between their Karma pool and the necklace as a Standard action, and may spend Karma from the necklace as if it were in their Karma pool.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn what each symbol, material, and rune represents.
Effect: The wearer gains the Passion’s Pursuit ability. As a Simple action, the wearer touches a bead and channels the ideals of that Passion. This allows the wearer to spend an additional Karma Point any test appropriate to the Passion’s ideals. This cannot affect Sustained actions. This ability may be used once per day.

If the wearer uses a bead associated with a now Mad Passion, channeling their old ideals, something goes wrong (“yes, but…”) at the gamemaster’s discretion.

Thread Rank Four
Effect: The wearer gains +1 to Mystic Armor.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn who created the necklace.
Effect: The wearer can use Passion’s Pursuit twice per day. Each bead can only be targeted once each day.

Thread Rank Six
Effect: The wearer can use Passion’s Pursuit three times per day. Each bead can still only be targeted once each day.
Sash of Surprises (Completely Researched, Rank 6 Thread woven)
Spoiler:
Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

This brilliant crimson sash is embroidered with gold thread in elaborate geometric designs and each end has tassels from the same golden thread.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the sash’s Name.
Effect: The wearer discovers pockets throughout the sash, cleverly using the geometric patterns to conceal them and anything placed within. This gives the wearer +1 rank to Conceal Object.

Thread Rank Two
Effect: The sash is exceptionally strong, turning aside weapons and giving the wearer +1 to Physical Armor.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the significance of the patterns.
Effect: The wearer can meditate on the patterns which appear in their mind’s eye as opening doors. This gives the wearer a +1 bonus to Sustained actions that require focus (e.g., Evidence Analysis and Forge Weapon).

Thread Rank Four
Effect
: The wearer gains +2 to Physical Armor.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge
: The owner must learn who created the sash.
Effect: The meditation gives the wearer a +2 bonus to appropriate Sustained actions.

Thread Rank Six
Effect
: The wearer gains +3 to Physical Armor.
Unquenchable Fire (Fully IH/Researched, Rank 6 Thread woven)
Spoiler:
Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

A bracelet that seems to be cut from gleaming red crystal. The facets sparkle too much and in ways they shouldn’t when light shines on it, which belies its true nature. Once a thread is attached, the bracelet glows and blazes in time with the wearer’s heartbeat and disposition. The True fire never goes out, merely moving from a simmer to conflagration around the wearer’s arm. As the wearer’s understanding of the bracelet increases, and their control over themselves improves, so does their control of the bracelet’s flame.

Strange runes reveal themselves to the owner within the bracelet as the thread rank increases. These runes shift and change; they seem to tell a story that reveals slowly, but it is incomplete.


Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the bracelet’s Name.
Effect: The fire’s burning reflects in the wearer, making them warm and affable as required. The wearer gains a +1 bonus to Interaction tests.

Thread Rank Two
Effect
: The fire wraps around their limbs, a reminder of how it both brings life and warmth, but is terrible in anger. The wearer gains a +1 bonus to close combat Attack tests.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge
: The owner must learn the locations of where the True fire was harvested.
Effect: Uncontrolled fire runs rampant without regard, but when harnessed and focused, it is a tool. The wearer does not take Strain for the Aggressive Attack combat option.

Thread Rank Four
Effect
: Fire consumes what is in its path. It is hungry and relentless. The wearer gains a +1 bonus to close combat Damage tests.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge
: The owner must begin to unravel the mysteries of the runes in the bracelet.
Deed: The owner must travel to the locations where the True fire was harvested and entreat with a fire spirit dwelling there.
Effect: Fire is defined not by how long it burns, but how bright and how hot. For 1 Strain, the wearer gains an additional +1 to Attack and Damage tests when using the Aggressive Attack combat option.

Thread Rank Six
Effect
: Time is the unquenchable fire in which we burn. Once per round for 2 Strain, the wearer may spend an additional Karma Point on a direct, violent Action test.
