Equipment Listing
Item Description
Binoculars Allows viewing things from a great distance, including granting +1 to sight-based focus rolls.
Bullet, Armor Piercing Reduces armor bonuses by 1 rank
Bullet, Hollow Point Breaks apart inside the target, causing Mauling instead of Puncture damage and reducing Surgery rolls to heal the target by 1 rank
Cell Phone Allows calls as long as there is signal, which is up to the GM. Smartphones can be loaded with various apps, which is up to the GM

This can be used as a Blunt weapon (Fair damage), but can also be used to prise open doors or crates. Certain crowbars have tire irons on them which will help in changing a tire

Cutting Torch

This torch allows the person using it to cut through metal as long as it has fuel

Digital Camera Allows the user to take photographs which can be stored on digital media and edited using digital applications
Electric Lantern

This allows an area of 50 square feet to be illuminated with nonmagickal light

Electric Torch

This is a heavy-duty, high-candlewatt flashlight, which has an effective range of 100 feet

First Aid Kit

A First Aid Kit increases the rank of all First Aid rolls by one. Some injuries may not be able to be healed using the items in a first aid kit, as per the GM, and some may not be able to be healed without them


A flashlight causes a beam of light which allows visibility in a 20 foot line


These allow a person to be restrained. Attempting to break them requires a Strength roll with a Good Difficulty Rating, and trying to damage them is like attacking Good armor


The uses of a laptop are virtually limitless. Allow the GM to help you figure out the types of software and hardware installed on the laptop and how it can help you in the field

Laser Scope

This will allow a sniper to make a Focus roll before his attack to use as an assisting roll to his attack. 


This is a kit that must be in the possession of someone trying to use the Lockpicking skill. A similar item, called a Jimmy, must be used to use the Lockpicking skill on a vehicle.


A maglight is a heavy-duty flashlight which will provide visibility in a 30 foot line. It can also double as a Fair Blunt damage weapon.

Pepper Spray

Pepper spray causes 1d10 Fortitude damage and Fair vision damage if sprayed into the face of a target.


Rope is very useful for climbing, tying things off, or tying people up.


A silencer, which can only be applied to a handgun, allows the weapon to be fired without a sound, thus preventing it from alerting nearby enemies.


A stethescope can help diagnosing internal injury or sickness. However, its best (although not primary) use is to grant a +1 rank to Safecracking rolls


A Taser is a weapon which deals Fair Electricity damage to the target that is touched by it. Some tasers can be fired, causing this damage up to 15 feet away, but they must then be reloaded, which takes 10 turns and cannot be done in the middle of combat

Tool Kit

A tool kit includes items which could help someone perform tasks which would require certain tools. Consult your GM to find out if the job you are doing requires a tool, and if your toolkit has such a tool in it


A Walkie Talkie allows for short range communication (2 miles maximum) with someone equipped with a similar radio

Welding Torch

A welding torch allows its user to weld together two pieces of metal. This may be useful, for example, in repairing a damaged piece of equipment, building or repairing armor, or welding shut a steel door
