This is a good one! I like the plot hook elements of this item tempting the eldritch beings by distorting reality. It makes the wearer seem not only "kind of invisible" but also kind of bad ass. Wearing an Utterblack cloak about town says "Not only could be I standing unseen in the corner of your bedroom with several inches to play with, but I am willing to tempt the elder gods to do it."
This line kind of shows your age though

Point of Order, young man I feel the need to point out the Bedazzler existed long before the 1990s.
Nice footnote, as some color to the setting (and for some reason strikes me as icky).
Might they use this technology in prisons, militaries or cults. If you can tie the color threads to the CNS it might make easier to control and monitor the moods of your members and/or prisoners. What is the underground city you made up? The one in the middle east run by a torture cult that uses human suffering to power their technology? I could see those guys putting this stuff into themselves and their prisoners (ie show off how much pain they are really in and push button suffering complete with black light effects and strobes)Go to Comment
