Re: Redoing Patron Items

I'm good with the stealth armor as presented above. On the die: reducing the +2 option to +1 would be fine, I think. Just gives you the ability to nudge something to Success or a raise once a session. Gold catch on repair. Rob's suggestion works, and/or give it free healing rolls while on a ley line.

Re: Redoing Patron Items

I don't have any major problems with the Stealth armor, and making it concealable is fine (MOH seems like a step over the line, though). However -- it needs a drawback that neither the Stealth bonus nor the invisibility function if anything is worn over the armor. No stacking an armored coat on top ...

One consequence -- which I think is a fun one -- of the cap on skills (most at 1d8, a couple at 1d10) is that there's less need to have loads of skill points and/or high attributes to buy up high skills levels. Could make Young more attractive.
