Weapon: Sky Cutter
Virtually unknown outside of the East, these exquisite arcing blades transcend boomerangs in the way that powerbows shame the fi nest weapons of mortal archers. Each sky-cutter is fashioned from a single two-foot piece of metal that has been alloyed with one of the fi ve magical materials, lovingly hammered or carved according to precise geomantic angles that focus Essence along its cutting edge. Unlike conventional boomerangs, a thrown sky-cutter always returns to its master’s hand if it misses its target. In the hands of a skilled Exalt, these weapons may return even after a successful attack. Such a feat requires a second, reflexive (Dexterity + Thrown) roll at difficulty 2. Failure leaves the weapon where it hit. An Exalt must commit four motes of Essence to attune a sky-cutter, and he gains the appropriate ranged artifact weapon bonus if he is of the correct Exalt type.
One of the most common types of armor in the world of Exalted, the buff jacket is a knee-length leather garment typically made from the hide of a mammoth or yeddim. The front of the coat overlaps completely—the inner and outer layer both fasten at the opposite shoulder. This setup doubles the jacket’s protection across the wearer’s vitals, as well as making it impossible to slip a blade through the seam where the jacket fastens. Most buff jackets have high, overlapping collars as well, to protect the wearer’s neck.
