backstory: one day I was playing Dread (the jenga based horror themed rpg tabletop game) with some of my buddies, when the DM (Dread Master) had the cloak that I found (and equipped) turn me into a three eyed demon with an unquenchable hunger for human flesh. as the secondary theme being Cthulhu I thought to myself man this robe would be cool to have in thaumcraft... and thus this somewhat twisted idea was born, however I have modified it to fit in more with the Eldritch. the name Occultus is improvised Latin for Occult.
research: the Occult robes (note: the item is called Occult robes in-game) ph'nglui mglw'nafn Cthulhu r'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtggn. you have always envied the eldritch guardians for their power. the item that you call Occult robes, will give you that power. when creating the robes you felt a sudden hunger for human souls. recipe: thaumaturge robes, 4 enchanted fabric, 3 void seeds, eye of the eldritch, 13 pannus, 13 alienalus, 13 tenibrea, 3 praemunio, and 3 aversio. instability: high. stats: the robes offer a little more defense and durability than the thaumaturge robe. the robes have warping 1 and a vis discount of 3%. abilities: the robes at first glance seem merely... robes, but they are something more... much more... when equipped the robes will imbue you with forbidden powers... and a dreadful curse... the power to deal much damage with your dark matter covered fist and the power to launch an orb of dark matter at your foes... coming at the cost of an unquenchable hunger for human souls... cosmetic stuff: the robes are in fact a single item that is equipped in the chestplate slot. it just happens to have a hood and legging attached, the hands of the player are covered by dark matter as well (this will also show in first person) the hood bit has an eye of the eldritch on the front and is incredibly shady with sinister red eyes (like that of the eldritch warden bosses) peering out. misc: when equipped the "eldritch whispering" sound effect will play, and a message will pop up saying "you have an unquenchable hunger for human souls".
end stuff: if you are interested in making this nightmare a reality, please communicate by sending me a private message.
