Flume-Flier of the Sky-Bear

Two shining chrome and platinum rocket-shaped cylinders straddle a metal grill. Atop each is a conical copper cap, and from the bottom of each streams a brilliant, fiery flume.

 You may activate this item to enter a dashing state.
 While dashing, whenever you move in a direction, you dash toward the nearest enemy or obstacle and perform an attack.
 For every three spaces you dash, you gain a +2 bonus to hit and a +2 penetration roll bonus to attacks you make.
 If you do not encounter an enemy or obstacle after twenty spaces, you stop dashing.

 Duration: 10 rounds
 Cooldown: 100 rounds

The Flume-Flier of the Sky-Bear is a unique item initially worn by Saad Amus, the Sky-Bear. It is a jetpack that allows the user to quickly cover long distances, amplifying their melee attacks in the process.

Wearing the Flume-Flier on one's back grants the "Activate Flume-Flier" activated ability, which when used, will cause the user to enter a dashing state. In this state, any movement in a particular direction will cause the user to continue moving in that direction until they reach an obstacle, such as a wall or creature, or a distance of 20 tiles, whichever comes first. This movement takes only 1 round regardless of distance travelled.

Upon encountering an obstacle, the user will perform a melee attack against said obstacle, with a bonus to hit and penetration. This bonus is equal to +2 to hit and penetration for every 3 tiles the user travels during their dash.

Entering the dashing state requires no fuel or energy of any kind, and lasts for 10 rounds; following this duration, however, the Flume-Flier's activated ability will be disabled for 100 rounds.

Recall Story

The Flume-Flier has an option when viewing it in the inventory to recall story, which when selected, displays the following:

[ Song of the Sky-Bear ]

Whilom, when Salum was the lond of Qud,
Ther was highte Amus-an a sturdy Saad;
Of Caiafas was he lord magistrate,
Swich skilful arms dide earn him that estaat;
What with his wysdom and his hardynesse,
He conquered al the regne of Aldersesse;
And thurgh the eyr dashed undernethe his shroud,
And rafte the heddes of all thoos byg and proud;
And when the Coven quod by oon assent,
That starry Ptoh shal been to prison sente,
He leden all the wei and shette the dore,
While skerren men dide quake behinde his foore;
So buryen nought the Beren in a tumbe,
But fresen now to interrupt his dome;
And oon day resurrect to fighte agayn,
And maken sones of Salum all full fayn.
