The following are the Insurgency's complete records of known transmutations of the Shifting Armoury. Entries of no special interest were ommitted, but can requested from the Production Facility Three Director.

Inital Release

Placata-Tuorium

Raw Material:

200 t of ice, 3,4 kg cadmium 1 ingot (4,2 kg apiece)
120 t of acrylic glass, 3,4 kg cadmium 1 ingot (4,2 kg apiece)

Properties:

Comparable to pure iron in all physical properties, but of periwinkle colour. Develops a patina after extended exposure to humidity which shimmers like an oil film on water.

Combinations:

  • Handheld weapons:
    Weapons of any kind were covered in a thin coating of Placata-Tuorium. Weapons enhanced this way can not be noticed by anyone unaware of its existence whilst holstered. This effect ceases once the weapon is drawn, subsequently becoming permanently perceivable for all observers.
  • Business Attire:
    All buttons, zippers, cufflinks and metalware on the shoes were replaced with pure Placata-Tuorium. Operatives wearing the complete attire are unable to be consciously acknowledged (but not noticed) by sentient beings they do not perceive themselves.

Inital Release

Accudo-Dolositatium

Raw Material:

1500 kg of rock candy, 3200 kg of shakudō 520 coins (4 g apiece)
2000 kg of rock candy, 400 kg electrum 700 coins (4 g apiece)

Properties:

Malleable, glossy-golden material of high thermal conductivity. Reported to be dazzling even without sufficient light sources.

Combinations:

  • None:
    The material is directly minted into coins of 14 mm diameter. These coins are considered to be extremely valuable by all persons without counter-memetic training and will invoke strong avaricious behaviour. They are eagerly accepted as payment by most people. Possession of the coins will lead to the development of addiction symptoms in the owner, leading to an every growing desire to acquire more of them.

Additional Notes:

Creation of more coins requires approval by at least one off-site Administrative Command Executive due to high danger for Insurgency personnel.

Inital Release

Candesco-Celeritatium

Raw Material:

50 t of spent nuclear fuel 1 Bloom of 45 Ingots (800 g apiece)

Properties:

Alloy of matte cupreous colour with a density of 10.3 g/cm³. The material has both high ductility and malleability. When exposed to air, it quickly tarnishes and develops a black shimmering patina; warming it to red heat reverses the process. Material acts as a Gamma- and X-Ray mirror.

Combinations:

  • None:
    During the only run with this material, the Shifting Armoury used 39 ingots to create an armour suit both inspired by tactical gear of modern urban warfare and maximilian armour, with the helmet being a synergized shape between a stechhelm and full-face bike helmets. The leftover ingots might have been intended for accompanying weaponry and a set of wings comparable to those of the Polish Hussars, but the Shifting Armoury never finished them.
    When worn, the suit is manipulating kinetic forces applied on and by it by a factor increasing with its relative velocity. Inbound forces (including friction) become reduced, whereas the forces it exerts get increased by the same factor. This means the wearer can accelerate to high velocities on foot and punch holes into walls whilst taking direct hits of enemy fire without suffering damage.

Additional Notes:

During the melting process, the Shifting Armoury exclaimed "It stings!"; following the event, its puppets were seen handling the liquid metal with great caution and tools mounted on long poles. It has refused working with radioactive material of any kind ever since.

Inital Release

Doleo-Tormenium

Raw Material:

5,3 t salt, 86 kg human milk powder (equivalent to 520 l), 600 kg quartz 1 boule (6,3 kg)

Properties:

Ivory coloured, marbled, highly magnetostrictive metal. The surface is constantly exhibiting small ripples slowly moving across it, occasional resulting in the emergence of [COGNITOHAZARD REDACTED] faint wailing.

Combinations:

  • Depth Charges:
    [REDACTED]
  • Grenade Launcher:
    [REDACTED]

Additional Notes:

Production of this material requires Alpha level authorization and facility wide lockdown procedures in place. Output is not allowed to come into contact with genetic material under any circumstances and must be handled by infertil personnel.

Mansuefacio-Gubernatium

Raw Material:

31 t pig iron, 15 hides of kangaroo leather, 400 kg paraffin wax 5 ingots (120 g apiece)

Properties:

Finely grained, silvery alloy with a Vickert Hardness of approx. 7800 VH. Produces a highly excruciating ringing noise when brought to resonance.

Combinations:

  • Nevermore:
    The material was forged into a set of cages, chainmail gauntlets and a small raptor hood. Both the cage and the hood appear to have a sedating effect on the specimen, rendering them inert when inside and/or wearing. The gauntlet allows for an operative to carry a single specimen perched on their arm, keeping the specimen docile and unable to harm the current wearer (but not others) until released.
  • Laser Sights:
    The outer frame of the optics were removed and replaced with pure Mansuefacio-Gubernatium. A click switch is present on the side, allowing to active the lasers alternative mode.
    The purpose of this modification was unknown until tests in tandem with an equipped Nevermore specimen were conducted. Whereas exact implications remain unknown, this seemingly allows for laser-guiding of Nevermore specimen during attacks.

Additional Notes:

Nevermore behaved highly aggressive and uncooperative towards the Shifting Armoury, repeatedly attacking and destroying its puppets during their work when taking measurements of the specimen. In response, the Shifting Armoury lowered a great amount of new puppets into the working area to overwhelm Nevermore, subduing some specimen by dropping anvils onto them. None of the Items appear to have suffered lasting harm.

Rosa-Speculo

Raw Material:

10kg Stramonium dust, 2000kg quartz, 1250kg bismuth 5 panes (1kg each)

Properties:

Panes of glass 1 square meter in size. A slightly opaque luster that shows a rainbow sheen when illuminated. Gives the effects of stramonium dust when consumed.

Combinations:

  • Water:
    Made into bottles capable of being fitted with a stopper. When water is added it becomes a cloudy purple liquid. When broken the bottle releases a gas cloud similar to that given off by David Wight. The cloud is proportionate with that of water allowed, with 6oz producing 8 square meters of the cloud. The cloud then persists for approximately 60 seconds before dissipating. The following combinations produce similar results except for the changes listed. Substances can be mixed to mix properties.
  • Rubbing Alcohol:
    Cloud persists for 15 minutes before dissipating.
  • Chlorophorm:
    Subjects within the cloud who fall unconscious will no longer die. However, there has been a correlation with test subjects who fall unconscious being diagnosed with lung cancer within the following months.
  • Ether:
    Subjects caught in the cloud will become numb and have movement hindered. Hallucinations become stronger as well, with subjects claiming to see neon lights as well as strengthened previous effects.
  • Human blood:
    Cloud becomes a dark crimson and will leave a sticky film to surfaces upon dissipating. If inhaled, the substance will condense and clog the bronchi branches in the lungs, often resulting in death. The film has also shown to render gas masks unusable.
