Reason
Category: Weapon
A steam-powered, ironclad dreadnought of an argument, bound up in a bow reading "Ultima Ratio Regum". As cunning as a weasel recently promoted to lead Benthic's Department of Exceptionally Cunning Studies, its manifold intermeshed moving parts give the listener an irrational urge to keep their fingers well clear until it stops. The recipient is left with the distinct impression of facing down a Maxim gun. Those not convinced by its logic are baffled by its complexity.

Well, of course, items that allow you to romance various characters immediately spring to mind (not that I think of women as objects), but I''l do one for each account:

Mutable Key (Weapon) Shadowy +3 Bizarre +1
This key opens, like most others, only one door, of course. It just seems to be rather confused about which one sometimes...

Truculent Trench-Coat (Clothing) Dangerous +4 Dreaded +1
A rather battered coat always looking for a fight. Made out of hardy "leather". What? What are you looking at? Surface cows are in short supply down here! Come over here and say that to its, er, "face"!

Artistically Inclined Beret (Hat) Persuasive +4 Respectable +1
No matter how hard you try, you just can't get it to sit straight on your head; it remains at a perpetual rakish tilt. And when wearing it, you tend to have trouble speaking with anything less than the most æsthetic of demeanors... B---er it! There it goes again!

Decidedly Unsportsmanlike Rapier
Weapon
Specifically designed to violate a record third of the rules in the Gentleman's Honorable Dueling Code, this rapier is poisoned, weighted, hollow, automated, and a couple more things you won't find out until you're already dueling.
Dangerous +7, Shadowy +6, Dreaded +1, Respectable -1

Uncomfortably Specific Bodice-Ripper
Weapon
Of course it isn't about you! I mean, who would go to the trouble of writing a whole salacious saga about a protagonist who shares your hair color, eye color, and fatal flaw just to expose your affairs and assignations? That's ridiculous! I probably wouldn't!
Persuasive +8, Watchful +3, Scandal +1, Respectable +1

Reckless Map
Companion
Marked with an emphasis on "Here Be Monsters", with an implication of "Come And Get 'Em". For the London thrill-seeker who's done it all, to make zailing more exciting.
Dangerous +6, Watchful +4, Bizarre +1, +1 Approaching Journey's End.

Perhaps locked with An Experienced Zailor 7?

One for each alt except one, as per the usual.

Starveling Coat
Category: Clothing
Persuasive -5, Watchful -5, Shadowy -5, Dangerous -5
Dreaded +10, Unaccountably Peckish +7,
req. Seven Stains upon your Soul
req. Hunting Beasts for the Labyrinth of Tigers 77
req. Delicious Reciprocity 7 (Hunting the Hunter)

Stars alone know how you've managed to restrain the mangy beast, never mind acquire enough material for a coat. It amuses itself with little vengeful pecadilloes like moaning during the quiet parts of the Mass, when you're slipping past a constable, silently staking out suspects, or trying to listen for a coming enemy. Seems to move around your house while you're not looking. Then your food starts to go missing. Is it looking even fuller and more luxurious than it was yesterday? Perhaps one day it'll wake and simply wander off again in search of foolish souls.

"The starveling coat! The starveling coat! Black as nights and souls and oaths!"
"The starveling coat! The starveling coat! It'll starve you even as you bloat!"

    A wonderful idea! For Mel I would want one of her personal story items:

    A Vial of Soulstuff
    Weapon
    The glowing, green fluid inside follows your hand like ferrofluid to a magnet, seeking its own.
    Watchful +3, Shadowy +2, Nightmares +1

    Requirement: Must have died at least once, among other things

    Currently open for all social actions:
    Mel Lawrence, a doctor and scientist with a strong hedonistic and independent streak. Her eccentricities and insanities are tolerated in high society only because of the novelty of her ideas. Plays a polite gentleman scientist during the day, and cultivates an alter ego as a female thief lord in the midnight hours.

    A few selections from a gigantic list of mine.

    Fairly Affectionate Fur Shawl
    Hat
    A bit like wearing a purring, friendly cat that will occasionally constrict your windpipe when you don't give it enough attention. Persuasive +5, Dangerous +2, Bizarre +1

    Wool Cowl

    "Who IS that?" Shadowy +2

    Tortoiseshell Tabby
    Companion
    Silence begets knowing things. Shadowy +4, Persuasive +2

    Main, Phiri Ulfur, the Cunning Shadow. Their heart belongs to a Pirate-Poet across the Zee.

    I've got some spare time on my hands, so I might as well enlist the healer to revive this thread.

    Black Mirror
    Home Comfort
    When you look through it, you see the truth of this world. It is fake. But God help you, you will NOT be lost in the fabrication.
    Watchful+5, Nightmares+3

    Can give the following opportunity card in your lodgings:

    The Greater Game
    Nothing is real. You know that now. This world is scripted. What will you do about it?
    [Exact revenge on the writers.]

    When "Exact revenge on the writers" is selected, you gain the following item:

    Simulacra
    Destiny
    Behind their glass screens is a reflection of their reality. You will become that reality.

    Wow. I really wish I had found this before. It looks REALLY cool.

    Alright. One for each of my characters.

    A Mirror Of Questionable Relfectiveness
    A prototype from your anarchist friends. It absorbs the light from all but a select few angles. Perfect for peaking around a corner while the constables are rushing in. It's rather fragile though, and it's hardly polite to lend a 'trick mirror'. Not to mention that they couldn't get rid of the viric tint. What ever did happen to the testers.
    Shadowy +5, Watchful +5, Persuasive -3, Dangerous -3, Bizarre +1, Nightmares +1

    What I wish the "Drownie Song of the Deep" was. Nightmares and all. I've been using both the song and the everlasting candle since I've acquired them. Both having been replaced only briefly by the memento of struggle.

    A Name Written Somewhere Else
    It doesn't matter where you write it. On a book, in a study, on a sheet of lead, as an initial, as a signature, or on a headstone. And half of them from before you came to the neath. Maybe it's why you seek, maybe it's why you don't care. You will go NORTH. You will find more than just His name.
    Watchful +10, Obscurity +3.
    [start the game with this]

    A meta joke. I've never bothered to put my seeking alt in my signature after I created it. I eventually realized that was probably for the best.

    Edit: Reworded the mirror a bit. Tried to make it a bit more consistent with the persuasive drop.

    Thanks! I have a bit of a thing for meta-narratives as well, so of course I had to include something of the sort.
