Cloak of the Rolling Tempest
This sturdy woolen cloak is oiled against the elements, and usually hooded. The only sign of it's magical properties is often a clasp in the shape of a lightning bolt, cloud or roaring cheek-puffed face.
When the power of the cloak is invoked, it causes the wearer to explode into a bolt of searing lightning and near-instantaneously cross a short distance before reappearing with a deafening bang. It is often favoured by barbarians and (despite it's ostentatious nature) rogues who use the magical property to allow them to swiftly cross a battlefield, or by archers or magic-users who want to get out of a dangerou situation. Striking enemies with a small amount of tempestuous energy is just a bonus ...
Cloak, Mantle, Cape; Adventurer tier (recharge 11+)
Default Bonus: Physical defence; +1 PD (adventurer); +2 PD (champion); +3 PD (epic)
As a Move action, place yourself in a nearby location you can see. Deal 4 lightning damage to each enemy you are engaged with when you use this power (Champion: 7 damage, Epic; 10 damage). Deal the same amount of thunder damage to each enemy you are engaged with after using the power, provided they have not already taken lightning damage.
This is a teleportation effect. It is accompanied by a burst of lightning and roll of thunder, and is thus very difficult to use without attracting attention.
Quirk: Prone to outbursts of loud, explosive laughter when amused or afraid.
Variant: Cloak of the Roaring Inferno
This red cloak is usually lined with cloth-of-gold, with intricate embroidery around the hems and hood. It functions just like a cloak of the rolling tempest, but the wearer disappears and reappears in a burst of roaring flame, causing fire damage to enemies caught in the blasts.
Variant: Cloak of the Howling Blizzard
This heavy fur cloak is often decorated with pieces of scrimshawed bone. The wearer disappears in a burst of freezing wind that roars across the battlefield causing cold damage to enemies caught in it's wake.
