"Anything capable of storing and/or emitting energy
can be made to explode." - Mike's Maxims for
Maximizing Military Mayhem (Malakite)
This is not a relic: it's more like a method for using relics in a way not intended by their creators. Well, it's exactly like that, actually: specifically, it's a method of shorting out a relic and/or reliquary so that all the Essence is released at once. This will result in an explosion - but then, that's the idea.
Jangling an artifact is not an automatic task: it requires a little time to work, a couple bits of wire - and a Precision roll. Modifiers to the roll:
Fragility of the Artifact Modifier Easy to Destroy No roll needed Fragile +2 Typical no modifier Tough -2 Very Tough -4 Extremely Tough -6 Unbreakable impossible Celestial has Enchantment skill +level of skillUse the CD on a successful roll to determine how many turns before the artifact will explode: an unfavorable Intervention indicates that the artifact explodes immediately. Damage done by a Jangled artifact is equal to the amount of Essence currently in the artifact, times CD of the Jangling roll (minimum 1): range on the corporeal plane is equal to (level of the artifact) x (CD of the Jangling roll), in yards. The type of damage is the same as the plane in which the explosion occurs.
