Lore[edit | edit source]

A man with sun-darkened skin, unkempt hair and a heavy beard. His faded, worn-out clothes are still covered with road dust.

Prospector's Amulet[edit | edit source]

He can't yet afford a comfortable stay in Teron, and offers several items for sale to earn his keep. [Hidden Check] Lore 3: After some junk items, he produces the Prospector's Amulet.

Skill Checks[edit | edit source]

  • 2 Streetwise, followed by 3 Streetwise to convince him it's just a bowl for burning incense (but it's still a fancy, gem-encrusted one).
  • Trading 3 to lower the price:
    • He wants 500g if your Streetwise fails; otherwise it's 300g. Successful Trading knocks that down - either from 500 to 300, or from 300 to 200.

SPOILERS[edit | edit source]

Lore[edit | edit source]

A breathing apparatus of the Old Empire. When charged with magical energies, it will allow you to breathe in toxic environments. A valuable artefact, it's been handed down the generations from father to son. The magic powering up the device eventually ran out and the purpose was lost. All that was remembered was that it is a powerful charm, protecting its wearer from unseen danger.

Function[edit | edit source]

The Amulet is a bejeweled Respirator, and as such can be used to traverse The Abyss and/or the Dead River, provided you have Lore 5 and expend a Power Module.
