OriginEdit

The Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was destroyed during the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake. Estimated to measure between an 8.5-9 magnitude, the quake along with the following fires and tsunami caused anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 deaths in Lisbon alone. The damage effectively crippled Portugal’s colonial aspirations while they began rebuilding internally. Although many of the structures that partially survived were removed for reconstruction, the Convent’s ruins remain standing as a reminder of the devastation.

EffectsEdit

The bell will release a destructive wave that causes the ground to rip itself apart in upheaval. The force causing the destruction will appear to originate from above surface rather than below the earth. It seems the more densely packed an area, the more severe the damage.
