- Any skill tests you perform nested within a parley action have their difficulty reduced by 2, too.
Reduce the difficulty of skill tests you perform during 'parley' actions by 2.
Okay, the Parley bit is interesting ... but - just how many Parley actions are there in the game so far? Not many, so let's ignore that...
1 cost for 1 health and 1 horror. And it's an Item, so Scavenging might work well with it. Also, it's the first body slot card to offer some level of horror protection, which is interesting too.
On balance, it's probably not as good as Leather Coat, but it's not disappointing for the cost, and I find horror is often more of a problem than health. It's also much cheaper than Bulletproof Vest in terms of XP.
One down-side - this has the creepiest card art in the game. Is that a mannequin? Scary.
