The Laser Pistol to the left requires an energy cell for ammo, and can be overcharged to deal an extra die of class damage at the risk of shorting the gun out and requiring its repair by a Sage. Other Future-Tech items, such as the Phase-Belt, allow the character to mimic spell effects, such as teleportation, at the cost of an entire energy cell.
"Lost Marvels" are the final category of Marvelous Items, and represent the pinnacle of normal technology at the time the world fell apart. These would include powerful sniper rifles that can take an enemy out in a single shot. suppressors for firearms, and night vision goggles.
