Transit Stone

The transit stone is an Iconian, tech level ten item that for all practical purposes is magic. It requires the user to create a mental image of where he desires to go. The stone then transports him and up to one metric ton of other things/people that are within 5 meters of him. The user must visualize himself and all he desires to travel with him. He then rolls Intellect + Perception + Vehicle Operations, Temporal to activate the stone. A failed roll will result in travel to a random place up to one sector away per point missed by. A roll failed by 5 or more points will result in travel to another dimension, time, or galaxy and the device will become inert for up to one month.

Thanos sold his share to speak with the Oracle for this simple stone. He then spent the next week lost in space as he tried to figure out how to get back when his first use of the stone took him to a primitive planet and left him with no food or water. Further screw ups took him to five other planets and he acquired a flulike illness that took him four days to beat.
