Equipment: Distortion Piece
A Distortion Piece looks like a big heavy pocket watch made from har science friction material, connected to the Deathsuit by an umbilical-like cord. The glass over the face of the watch is made from heavily cracked and chipped crystal, making it impossible to get a clear view of the glyphs beneath which always appear distorted. To use the Distortion Piece an ebb user has to hold it in their hand. By using the Distortion Piece, the usual effect delay of one phase after calculating a Time Ebb ability is cancelled. 1500c
