A Well Used Bible
- Type of Item: Bible
- Enchantments (Two Major, Two Minor): Elan, Luck, +1 to Spirit rolls, Inspire
- P.P.E.: N/A
- Trait: N/A
- Trappings: This is the personal study bible of Rill’s mentor, the late Reverend Jeremy Thatcher, who first welcomed Rill to Black Mesa and taught him the Good News. Over many years of loving use, the good reverend inadvertently imbued this bible with its own holy power, and any who read it regularly will find themselves greatly blessed for doing so. The bible confers the Elan Edge (to reflect help from on High when the reader really puts his Spirit into something), the Luck Edge (divine providence), a +1 to Spirit rolls (literally uplifting the Spirit of the reader) and the ability to inspire others (once per session, he can make a Spirit roll as a cooperative roll and add +1 for each success and raise to the Trait roll of another). Rill must spend a couple of minutes reading from the bible every day to get these benefits, and he must keep it on his person.
As a note on design, I wanted to shy away from benefits that were Mystic or spellcaster specific. Reverend Thatcher would have wanted his bible to benefit anyone who had it, not just those with Arcane Backgrounds. I’m obviously not planning for it to pass from Rill’s hands, but it just felt right for the item to be designed with that in mind.
