Here’s another Weird Science Gadget for Pulp Cthulhu. Enjoy!
A Hidden Blade is a concealed, spring-loaded weapon which extends from a specially designed bracer worn around the wrist. This weapon can be used to launch a devastating series of attacks against an unprepared combatant.
This weapon is difficult to notice when worn. The wearer must be searched and a Spot Hidden roll is required, opposed by the wearer’s Stealth skill.
During a surprise attack, an attacker with a Hidden Blade may attempt two attack rolls instead of one (as per the Shadow talent, p.26 Pulp Cthulhu rulebook). An attacker with a Hidden Blade who also has the Shadow talent can attempt three such surprise attack rolls. A Hidden Blade causes the same damage as a Medium Knife (1D4+2+db).
To build: parts cost $250, requires 1d10+5 days, and a successful combined Hard Mechanical Repair and Hard Art/Craft (Leatherworker or Weaponsmith) roll.
