Wraith Firearms are the result of Architects of the Flesh attempting to utilize
the insubstantiality powers of certain Ghosts and Demons found in the Netherworld
and the 69AD Juncture.
The firearms look like antique Chinese muskets or pistols, however close examination
reveals that the wood grain of the stocks forms screaming human faces. They also
sport an AI/O lead and a fleshy "out of phase" cable that twists in
If an Arcanowave user feeds this cable into his eye (yuck!) he is able to utilise
the trapped spirits Insubstantial power and see targets who are hiding behind
cover or even behind walls. Each Sequence (or portion thereof) that this power
is used gains the user a Mutation Point.
Also any rounds fired by the Firearm are also charged with ghostly ectoplasmic
energy and can pass through barriers and cover (but not Armour), they pass through
the air with a high pitched keening shriek, and tear reality as they pass giving
glimpses of one of the myriad of hells that exist in other dimensions. Thankfully
these dimensional rifts heal in a second or so, but this effect convinced the
Arcanotechnicians not to produce a fully automatic version of this weapon. Firing
a round garners the user a Mutation Point.
Base Damage for these bullets is 7.
A Kind GM might specify a substance that both the eyepiece and the bullet cannot
pierce, for each Wraith Firearm used. An even kinder GM might make that substance
available on the battlefield.
