Amulet: Mummy Hekau path-empowered amulet; +2 Intelligence while worn. Grants Joshua an Intelligence of 6, and phenomenal levels of insight, like a living encyclopedia.
Artifacts: The Charm of Cassiel. An amulet, in the form of a small gold plate hanging on a chain, the plate set with arcane symbols made of lead crystal, the entire piece alchemically enchanted to near-indestructibility. Permanently enchanted via Life 3/Prime 3/Time 3 with continuous powers, available upon command: +3 to Physical Attributes, and a Time dilation effect for effective Celerity of 6. Joshua negotiated with the archangel Umbrood Cassiel, due to his association with the planet Saturn and its spiritual correspondence with the Sphere of Time. The angelic spirit also supports the Better Body Life effect, not out of any particular magickal correspondence, but out of sheer arrogance — not wishing to share the artifact with another of its kind.
