Utterblack Cloak

By:

An item to aid those who seek to be hidden in the shadows...

This cloak, heavily dyed with Utterblack, has the power to become fully invisible when the light level is dim enough. Not simply hard to see, but fully invisible, extending several inches out so bare hands and uncovered faces would also be hidden. The slightest touch of light greater than that of candlelight dispels the effect.

The use of Utterblack in its manufacture has the unfortunate side effect of thinning reality nearby its wearer. This could manifest as little more then rather disturbing nightmares, or could even bring the wearer to something malevolent's attention.

A variant of this is the Black Robe of Angius Reft. This full length robe is reversible, with a stylish blue and gold mage's robe exterior, and the Utterblack interior. In addition to its shadow-hiding ability, the robe is resistant to piercing weapons, and has numerous extra dimensional pockets. It is also a Darkness magnet, so its wearer is far more likely to 'randomly' encounter fell beings from beyond the veil, and not in a good way.

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

"stylish blue and gold mage's robe exterior"

All the stylish mages are wearing animal print this season.

You can just insert whatever is stylish at that point, or the mages cloak can change itself.

Oh look, my constellations have turned themselves into gold runes. Astrology must be gauche this season. Ah Cloaky you never leave me slubbish

Nice application, made me think of something like a cartoom vampire's cape where they wrap up in it and turn into a shadow an vanish, but instead of cartoony, serious.

"Under the Hill"

       By: rickster

Some parallel worlds have different time-flows, like the fabled dwelling-places of the elves: those who visit them under the hill for a night return to find that years have passed in this world. Perhaps it is the gate leading between the worlds which causes the alteration. If a gate were 'misaligned', the shift from '| |' to '| \' or '| /' as it were would lead to that difference, much as a light-beam split and bent by a prism ends up taking a longer path. There might even be a mathematical function linking degree of misalignment to alteration of time-rate.
