Rag Man's Cape


Image RagMancape.jpg
Description There's a story, said to have been old when Metroplex got its name, about a man hung out to die with nothing but his rags and the ravens to keep him company. The details vary with the telling, but it always ends with a warning never to enter an alley marked with a single piece of cloth.

Something about this tattered old cape reminds you uncomfortably of that tale, as though you might violate sacred ground just by wearing it.

After 9-30? energy spent with this item equipped, you get a special combat encounter. Win or lose, these encounters do not take Energy. If you win, you can learn the Ragged Dodge technique (but only for the first five fights you win each day). The Rag Man will only show up while outdoors.

If you are Etheric:

As you make your way down an alley, you hear an unfamiliar bird cry, more a premonition than a sound. It's enough to get you to turn around, though, as the shadowy figure behind you closes the last few meters.

Maybe the bird was looking out for you.

(Fight the Rag Man)

And, after defeating the Rag Man at least once today with Channeling Matsuo active:

A deep, threatening laugh echoes through the alley you're passing through. The writhing shape of rags and shadows hovers, waiting patiently for you to turn around and prepare yourself before it swoops towards you.

(Fight The Rag Man's More Powerful Ultimate Form)

Or, if not Etheric:

As you make your way down an alley, you catch a faint rasp of polysteel-on-polysteel, more a premonition than a sound. You turn to find a man, wrapped in rags and barely more than a step behind you.

(Fight Ragged Bum)
