OriginEdit

In 1934, the Bristol performer Karachi (real name Arthur Claude Darby) challenged sceptics of the famed Indian Rope trick to observe his performance and find fault with it, the winner earning 200 guineas. Due to his past failures with the trick, no-one took him up on his offer, but his enthusiasm does seem to have created an artifact out of his performance rope.

EffectsEdit

When the rope is touched it forms a sort of psychic resonance with the performer that allows them to control the tautness and direction the rope climbs in, allowing it to perform impossible configurations. 

UsageEdit

Due to it's useful properties, Claudia managed to find a way to intergrate it into the Warehouse Zipline, allowing for speedy and hard to follow getaways when needed. Releasing the clasps on one end before pushing off wil cause the rope to fall away as the harness zips by, leaving a taut line in front, but a slack and unusable cord behind.
