Aesop’s Rope






Traps the first person who touches it. When released, they will become extremely loyal to their liberator


Inability to deny another's request



Collected by

Warehouse 3







Date of Collection

127 AD



Despite the evidence to the contrary, there is no discernible evidence that Aesop was actually a Warehouse agent, or even a Warehouse associate. However, there are plenty of his artifacts around, either in the Warehouse, out in the world, or like, this rope, in a private collection. Aesop's whole life story is further surrounded in mystery, so how these artifacts even came about is not well known. If Aesop's accounts are to be taken at face value, a lion once caught and threatened to kill a pesky mouse, which begged to be freed. The lion, amused by his prey's begging, let the creature go. It was only a few days later that the mouse found the lion caught in a hunter's snare, and, remembering the larger being's act of kindness, chewed through the rope until the lion was freed.

This was inspiration for the Disney film “The Rescuers”.


This rope, which seems to have been frayed...or one end, will entangle the first person to touch it. Should another person set the first free, the first will become so loyal and thankful to the second that they would do anything for them should they ask.

No task appears overwhelming when asked, making the duo unable to separate easy and impossible requests. Many attempts will fail simply due to their combined inability to say no when faced with repaying a friend's debt.
