Blood Feathers

Inspired by a drawing/discussion on Twitter:

Blood Feathers

Cost: 500 Weight: 1 Availability: Rare

Blood Feathers are almost exclusively applied to t’skrang. They are not fashionable among the larger aropagoi, but can be found up and down the waterways of Barsaive in the smaller villages. They are implanted along the crests of the t’skrang, usually in elaborate patterns of color and texture. This causes 3 points of Blood Damage. Normally they lay flat, swept back in such a way as to not interfere with swimming while still showcasing the designs. When the t’skrang is in danger, they can activate the Blood Feathers so that they stand straight out, making the t’skrang look much bigger than it is. This causes 1 point of strain per round, but adds +3 to all Intimidation tests and +3 to the t’skrang’s Social Defense to resist Intimidation and fear-based effects.
