Blade of Bloody Rest : Artifact

When activated this artifact can induce a state indistinguishable from death in the user.

In order to activate the user must hold onto the grip and stab the blade deep into their chest, this requires great willpower and resistance to pain (INT check vs 5 [15], training in willpower/pain resistance lowers).

The user then instantly enters a death-like state which is difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish from true biological death. This state lasts for 4+artifact level minutes and at GM’s discretion may be used as a rest period for recovery roles whose rest time is lower than the death-state timer. After the state wears off, the artifact is ejected from the user’s chest and the user’s wounds are quickly regenerated.
