OriginEdit

Cangjie is a legendary Chinese figure, claimed to be the originator of Chinese characters. Legend has it that he had four eyes, and that when he invented the characters, the deities and ghosts cried and the sky rained millet. One day, Cangjie saw a phoenix drop an unrecognizable hoof print nearby. He received an answer from a local hunter and gained the idea to develop a system of symbols where each word or idea would be represented with a unique picture. The Yellow Emperor then had Cangjie teach his system to the rest of the kingdom.

Oracle bone scripts are ancient Chinese characters found on oracle bones, which were animal bones or turtle shells used in divination in Bronze Age China. Diviners would carve a question into them with a heated rod and then use the cracks created to predict the future.

This artifact was originally found by Subhas Chandra Bose and was in his cache of artifacts. It was collected by agent Clifford West on August 17th, 1945.

EffectsEdit

It creates the perfect words or phrases to describe a situation. All listeners will be amazed at the accuracy of the wording and will place great reverence in the user. The user will become badly burned if they touch the bone. From there, they may develop another set of eyes to help them process through the many word choices the script creates.
