Magazines & Holiday(?) Artifacts

posted Feb 20, 2015 03:07:28 by BryanGustafson
So I'm looking some input on statical design for a few new artifacts: "Non-Fiction" Magazines, Valentines Letters, Santa Accessories, Holiday Costumes, and maybe a Christmas Tree Sapling or something like that. I could also use some help deciding whether the valentine's letters should be artifacts or scrap.

Hi Bryan - is this the kind of thing that you're looking for ?

Santa Suit - complete with fake beard and big belly, this alternate fashion statement is well insulated if a little cumbersome.
Scrap : Gear Bonus +1 against cold, -1 penalty on Move rolls

Valentines Letters - a touching account of love denied, these well preserved letters are neatly tied up with scarlet ribbon and smell faintly of delicate perfume. The tale they recount can give the reader sense of a time when life was more than scrabbling desperately for food and water.
Artifact
Effect : Reading through the letters can restore Empathy Trauma
DEV Requirement : Culture 25
Dev Bonus : Culture + D6

So could i get some background suggestions for trees, papers, and significant holiday culture items (like maybe dreidels, menorahs, etc.)? I'm trying to create a series of items that give the idea that people where always busying themselves, even during the days of the apocalypse.

I'm afraid I'm not really a religious person Bryan, but I'll chuck in what I can.

The 2 main holidays I celebrate are Christmas, and to a lesser extent Easter.

Christmas
Costumes - Santa, Elf
Nativity Scene - complete with Donkeys, Manger, 3 Wise Men bearing gifts, Shepherds all in and around a Barn with a single star overhead
Christmas Tree - decorated with baubles, cherubs, tinsel and lights. Can be fake, or a dried out brown fir with the decorations grimly clinging on.
Tinsel - hanging from walls, doors and light fixtures - could make for a good if gaudy tripwire
Mistletoe - either fake or a dried up natural one, hung typically in doorways or occasionally around a desperate mans belt
Christmas cards - depicting idyllic scenes of winter covered countryside
Presents - wrapped in shiny paper and decorated with ribbon, could contain absolutely anything
Snowman - covered in ash and subsequently baked in a long forgotten series of explosions - measures 11 out of 10 on the creepy scale

Easter
Easter eggs - chocolate eggs of all sizes, wrapped in foil and sometimes containing more sweets. What could be wrong with chocolate in foil - hardly any chance that rot has got into that ;)


Hope that's useful :)
