This signal horn is made in the style of the Iopan plain, using the traditional coiled horn of a hoop horn. Gleaming silver plating wraps the horn, enhancing the acoustics, and runes are carved in the silver along the coil. A simple leather strap allows the horn to be worn when not in use.

Moonlit Toccata

Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

This ash bow is carved with silvery runes and wrapped with tattered blue and silver ribbons. Whenever an arrow is nocked, a soft, cold light can be seen just behind the arrowhead from all angles—nothing to reveal it, but an eerie glow to those nearby. Each attack with the bow plays a single, clear note with vibrato as the arrow is loosed, followed by a second note as it strikes, forming a coda to the attack.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:

Effect: The bow is Damage Step 6. A glyph appears on the arrowhead as the arrow is nocked. It disappears if the arrow goes unfired, but is permanent if fired.

Thread Rank Two
Effect:
True air infuses the wielder’s actions, allowing them to ready or stow the bow as a Simple action.

Thread Rank Three
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn about the glyphs on the arrows.
Effect: The wielder gains the Moonlit Toccata ability. As a Simple action for 1 Strain, the glow around the arrow intensifies, surrounding it and streaming back toward the wielder. The wielder gains +2 to their Attack tests with the bow until the end of the round.

Thread Rank Four
Effect:
When Moonlit Toccata is active, the runes along the bow glow with a cool, soft light. The wielder can also spend 1 Strain when activated to gain +2 to the associated Damage tests.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn about the runes and what they represent.
Deed: The owner must have a thread tied to Moonlit Crescendo.
Effect: When Moonlit Toccata is active, the wielder can spend an additional Karma Point on the Attack test. Doing so causes an additional note to be played, creating a distinctive leitmotif.

Thread Rank Six
Effect:
When Moonlit Toccata is used, each attack builds an aria with mounting intensity. A successful associated Attack test adds one “count.” For 1 Strain, the wielder gains an additional +1 to Attack tests with the bow while using Moonlit Toccata per count. If the wielder misses, the count is reduced to 0.

Moonlit Crescendo

Maximum Threads: 2
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

This long, graceful lance has a haft carved with silvery runes and topped with a delicate looking silver blade. The blade has a glyph on each side and a cold, soft light just behind it from all angles—nothing to reveal it, but an eerie glow to those nearby. Just below the blade is a tattered blue pennant with a silver crescent moon and five stars arranged irregularly within the crescent. Each attack with the lance plays a single, clear note.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the lance’s Name.

Effect:
When Moonlit Crescendo is used, the aria builds to the moment of impact. For 1 Strain, the wielder reduces the “count” from Moonlit Toccata to 0. For each count, the wielder can spend an additional Karma Point on the associated Attack or Damage test. If the attack misses, any “count” allocated for the Damage test is lost, though the Karma Points are not spent.

Homefires

Maximum Threads: 1
Mystic Defense: 12
Legend Point Cost: Journeyman

This bronze anvil-shaped amulet is an excellent example of classic Throalic craftsmanship and styling. The masterful craftsmanship has stunning engravings of Throalic architecture, presenting a feeling of both majesty and comfort. It’s always pleasantly warm and heavy feeling to the touch, and the engravings sometimes glow like tiny embers. This is particularly true when someone breathes on the amulet.

Thread Rank One
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the amulet’s Name.
Deed: The owner must be a Weaponsmith.
Effect: The wearer may spend 1 Strain to eliminate the penalties when using the Traveling Smithy Weaponsmith ability.

Thread Rank Two
Effect: If the wearer uses their Traveling Forge ability, they gain a +2 bonus to Charisma-based tests with other Namegivers when used around the forge. This does not affect intimidation or fear-based abilities, or if the wearer attempts to take advantage of the other party.

Thread Rank Three
Deed: The owner must strike a deal with a fire spirit, performing a minor service for them in exchange for future services rendered.
Effect: The wearer gains the Homefires ability. The wearer performs their Karma Ritual (which cannot have been performed yet) and uses their Traveling Smith ability. They take the Strain as Blood Magic Damage and forge themselves as part of the ritual, causing their skin to glow with an inner fire. The wearer gains +2 to Physical Armor until no later than sunrise the next day. The owner can end this effect as a Free action before it expires if desired. They can heal the damage once the ability ends.

Thread Rank Four
Effect: When the wearer uses Traveling Forge, they attract fire spirits—typically flames, which look like a candle flame that produces a mouth and eyes when interacting with someone, and their color reflects their mood. Though the color to mood correlation isn’t consistent between these spirits. The wearer can invite a fire spirit to bind with them, effectively using the Aid Summoner power, and takes on some superficial characteristics of the spirit. The wearer cannot benefit from other binding effects while using this. The wearer can take 1 Strain to gain +3 to a test using their Traveling Forge.

Thread Rank Five
Key Knowledge: The owner must learn the creator’s Name.
Effect: The wearer increases their highest Circle by 1 for determining their Karma Pool.

Thread Rank Six
Effect: When the wearer uses Homefires, they can forge their pattern as well, taking an additional 2 Blood Magic Damage to gain +2 to Mystic Armor.

Thread Rank Seven
Deed: The owner must strike a deal with an earth spirit, performing a minor service for them in exchange for future services rendered.
Effect: The wearer can spend an additional Karma Point on Action tests using Traveling Smithy to create or repair something, or on an Action test using something they created. This can be done once per round.

Thread Rank Eight
Effect: When the wearer uses Traveling Smithy, earth spirits are also coaxed to the area—typically gnomes. They are shy, harmless, and very hard working. The earth spirits quietly get to work constructing a large, colorful ger. This is equivalent to the Shelter spell (Player’s Guide, p. 274). The wearer makes a Perception Step + Thread Rank test as a Spellcasting test and it always gets at least one success. Once complete, the earth spirits may silently observe the work done around them. Their hard eyes staring without blinking. It’s easy to wonder if they are judging as they watch everyone move about the area. Yes, they are judging.

The fire spirits now also hide in the fire and cooling embers, keeping the camp warm during even the coldest temperatures. Their frequently mischievous and expanded domain can put them at odds with the earth spirits and any Namegivers who don’t appreciate their antics. Which are adorable until something catches fire and they are easily offended by putting fires out. In addition, they also warn the owner of any intruders to the campsite. If anything with a Mystic Defense less than or equal to the owner’s Perception Step + Thread Rank enters within a 10-yard radius of the camp (this does not include innocuous normal animals—the spirits can tell the difference), the campfire flares to life briefly as a towering inferno. It’s not subtle, but it gets the job done.

This green and gold headband is studded with varying sizes and styles of blue opals. Some smooth, while others rough. All are beautiful and create a whole despite their differences.

Effect: The wearer gains the True Blue ability. As a Free action for 1 Strain, their magic is suffused with a green and golden glow. They can spend a Karma Point when casting a spell that targets or affects an ally to weave an additional thread. This thread does not count against the normal maximum for additional threads.

This cannot be used with Chain Casting.

Thread Rank Six
Effect:
When the wearer uses True Blue, the opals shine brilliantly. If the wearer empowers a spell with True Blue and a Karma Point, they can spend an additional 1 Strain and Karma Point to affect an additional ally in range. This cannot be used with Chain Casting and does not avoid limitations on the number of targets (e.g., binding spells).

Thread Rank Seven
Key Knowledge:
The owner must learn the previous owner’s Name and their fate. [Stephen Irwin and died doing what he loved]
Effect: The Standard Matrix is now an Enhanced Matrix.

This simple, single bit hand axe is of typical obsidiman craftsmanship: solid with no ornamentation and frills. Something more likely found in an explorer’s kit for setting up camp than wielded in combat. The oak haft and blade have dark stains on them which no amount of polishing or sanding can remove. The touched surfaces are corroded by whatever caused the stain and the patterns make it clear it was held in a left hand when they were caused.

This slender flight dagger has no guard and virtually no handle, only the briefest of tang to hold in the wielder’s fingers. The craftsmanship places the center of mass directly in the middle of the blade. Other than the thin line of spidery runes running down the blade, nothing seems notable. Until a thread is attached.

With a thread attached, how light reflects from the blade in unnatural ways immediately sets this dagger apart. Anyone looking into the highly polished blade may notice it shows multiple reflections, similar to a mirror, however no are exactly the same. The reflections may be in a different pose, different lighting, shows a different emotion on the viewers face, etc. Shadows cast from the dagger are similar, but show the dagger in different shapes and positions. As though the shadows and reflections represent the infinite possibilities of what could be.
