- Block Power (All Attacks): -2 to Stat Check
*Detectable (Spirit): Spiritually sensitive people can sense its powerful magic when the block power is activated by any offensive power. This detection is not modified by this block power attribute.
- Block Power (Sixth Sense): In addition to the -2 from the regular power, an addition -2 to anyone using any sixth sense to detect Arduno. This attribute does affect the spiritual detection upon use of the primary Block Power.
- Cursed 3: All those who knows about the amulet has to make a Soul check at +4 upon initial contact, or want it for themselves. Every subsequent sighting inflicts another soul check. If the victim knows of its power or has touched it, a -2 penalty is applied (-4 if both). If the person has possessed it for any length of time the penalty is increased to -6. Those who want it will stop at nothing to get it back. Each soul failure drives the victim closer to taking action.
Arduno: It was my mother’s. I have nothing more to say about it.
The little he says about it seems to make people the more curious about it. Arduno usually keeps it concealed in his dublet.
