This high-necked cape is made from a fine sapphire blue cloth of elf make that feels like satin and shines brilliantly in the light. The edges are trimmed in ornate gold embroidery, revealing elven runes along the length. It’s held together by a delicate golden chain with an oak leaf clasp, though once a thread is attached this is purely decorative as the cape always rests comfortably on the wearer’s shoulders regardless of the conditions. Attempting to restrain or any other resistance is futile.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the cape’s Name.
Effect: The wearer gains a +1 bonus to Initiative tests. At times the cape billows behind them dramatically. Sometimes it’s at an appropriate moment, others it’s when they’re sitting in the common room of an inn. A very careful observer notes it looks a little like something is holding onto the cape and flapping it to make it look like it’s billowing in a non-existent wind. There’s a non-zero chance those are grip marks at the end of the cape.

Thread Rank Two
Effect:
The wearer gains +1 to their Social Defense. The cape spends noticeably more time billowing now, especially in social situations. From giving a grand speech to a clandestine meeting in the shadows: billowing.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the bound spirit’s Name.
Effect: The wearer gains a +2 bonus to Initiative tests. The wearer may think now they know an air elemental is bound to the cloak, they have some ability to mitigate the billowing. They would be wrong. So very wrong. If anything, attempts to get it to stop only make it worse. Or better. Depends where you are on the billowing issue. Watching a play? Definitely not popular. Watching an adult get into an argument with a rebellious piece of fabric? Perhaps the height of comedy.

Thread Rank Four
Effect:
The wearer gains +1 to their Mystic Defense. At least the billowing is quite impressive and the cape seems to get almost impossibly long when it billows.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the meaning of the runes.
Effect: The owner can use the runes to keep the bound elemental in line or make peace with them. This decision must be made when this thread is woven and cannot be changed. If the owner uses the runes, they have complete control over the billowing and it looks natural, gaining a +3 bonus to Initiative tests. If they make peace with the bound elemental, they suffer at its whims, but it may listen to requests. It also actively attempts to help; as a Free action the wearer can spend 1 Strain to gain a +3 bonus to an Avoid Blow test.

Thread Rank Six
Effect:
If the owner used the runes to control the elemental, they gain +1 to the Physical Defense. If they made peace with the elemental, the spirit allows the owner to store Karma in the cloak, up to the thread rank. The wearer may transfer Karma Points between their Karma pool and the armor as a Standard action, and may spend Karma from the armor as if it were in their Karma pool.
Forge Lenses
Test Knowledge: 3/3
Research Knowledge: 1/3
Rank 2/6
Spoiler:
Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

These living crystal lenses are connected by a thin orichalcum wire that wraps around the wearer’s ears. The edge of each lens is smoky gray and etched in tidy runes.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the lenses’ Name.
Effect: The wearer gains +1 rank to Awareness.

Thread Rank Two
Effect:
The wearer gains +1 rank to Forge Weapon

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge:
The wearer must learn where the living crystal was harvested.
Effect: The lenses allow the wearer to focus on and see the microcrystalline structures in the metal they are working. They get +1 to tests involving inspecting, crafting, and repairing metal items. This includes Forge Weapon and Forge Armor for metal weapons and armor, but does not include any kind of mystical inspection, such as Astral Sight, Item History, or Thread Sight.

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

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge
: The owner must learn the meaning of the runes.
Effect: The wearer gains +2 to tests involving inspecting, crafting, and repairing metal items.

Thread Rank Six
Effect:
The lenses polarize when exposed to bright lights. As a Free action the wearer may reduce the blindness penalty caused by bright light by 2. For example, the Partial Blindness penalty inflicted by Fireball is reduced to 0.
Animal Companions:
Granlain (with tack) named Jarl

Brief Backstory:
Thorkell was always fascinated by weapons, even from an early age. It was not so much their destructive power as their ability to seemingly turn fate. Nearly every heroic adventurer had an equally impressive weapon. While other trolls would practice their skills with weapons, Thorkell preferred to learn about the great weapons and what truly made them so awe inspiring. It was no wonder then that he decided to try his hand at creating the weapons he so admired from his books. He soon came to realize, though that just making the weapons was not enough. He must learn firsthand what truly made a weapon great and in the process forge a name for his weapons. What better way to prove how great his handiwork was than to prove it in the field. And so Thorkell set out with his trusty sword, Gram.
