Casket of Ancient Winters

The Casket of Ancient Winters

GURPS Items of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Part 2


Hey folks, this is probably the least iconic item in this series I’m going to do, having only seen use in Thor, but I needed some items to round out the list and this one is one of the more powerful/interesting (compared to stuff like a photostatic veil or Vulture's wings). It did get shown off in two episodes of What If...?, which might remind people what it is and the power it packs.

“From a realm of cold and darkness came the Frost Giants. Threatening to plunge the mortal world into a new ice age.”

Notes: It’s unclear whether the casket can be used by anyone or only by frost giants. As best I can tell, we only see it used by Laufey and Loki. If you’d rather allow anyone to use it, increase Can Be Stolen to -30%. I gave it a couple different uses: a combo Binding and Fatigue Attack in a cone 2y wide, Create Ice (4000 lbs), and Crushing Attack to make an ice wall/barrier.
