  • Unorthodox Pact materials

    Rules as written, anything a Pact is written on gets additional durability. What would happen if an enterprising Demon engraved a Pact onto a piece of armour?
    Additionally, would this also work if a Demon engraved a Pact into someone's skull? Would it make their skull harder?

    +1 of Durability.
    A living Pactkeeper gain 1 point of Armour, if my memory is fine.

      Unless something changed, this is correct.

            It might be hard for the human to sign it. It would also (probably) make it hard for the demon to trade it to others.

            I run that that mortal has a connection to the soul pact and has s general feeling for where it is - at least its direction.

              Throwing it into the ocean would make it last a week at the very most, given how the ocean erodes things down. Even if the sand particle itself remains intact, any fine details on it would get smoothed down to the point the writing is all but gone.

              As for the living skull example, it could work. Not sure it would be entirely practical given the surgery needed for it and the recovery after the fact, but it could work.

                +1 Durability is a huge thing when it comes to such gradual and slow processes as erosion or general wear and tear, potentially increasing the average life of an object by a relatively big factor. But when applied to something that's already fleeting, it won't be that long even if it's a dramatic increase in comparison. Ten weeks is a lot more than a single week, but far from a long term solution.

                  This thread made me think of a demon whose cover is that of a heart surgeon. All his soul pacts are written on the signatory's heart. Signing in blood isn't a problem and the pact maker has a disincentive from destroying the pact.

                    Brutal. A tattoo artist might also be another option - just write your Pacts into the design.
