OriginsEdit

Came from the infamous whaleship Essex, which was attacked by a sperm whale and sank. Some of the survivors began running low on supplies after spending several months adrift. They agreed to draw lots, where the first person would be sacrificed for the crew to eat, and the second would be the executioner. By the time they were rescued, eight survivors had cannibalized seven crew. The incident inspired Herman Melville to write the story Moby-Dick.

EffectsEdit

Is always moist from spending time in the ocean and can easily be torn apart by a person's bare hands, although this will not prevent or stop the artifact's power. When put in the water, causes nearby wildlife to attack you and anyone you're with.
