OriginEdit

Game shows are a staple of daytime television slots, where contestants undergo mental gymnastics for fabulous prizes. Or just follow a script for network viewership. Dan Enright partnered with Jack Barry for Twenty-One, blackjack in trivia format. A bore. Until they decided to give contestants the correct answers beforehand.

Interest jumped with Herb Stempel pulling off a masterful streak, all to be usurped by teacher Charles van Doren. All according to plan. But Stempel, never compensated for throwing away his winnings, contacted the authorities. Other contestants followed suit. Amid accusations, the airing channels cancelled game shows with fervor – all on the grounds of fixing the outcomes during production. Enright and Barry were effectively blacklisted from the hosting circle for a decade until they were able to fund and produce content again. This time without all the deception.

EffectsEdit

Flipping through the pages is an alphabetized directory of every person involved in an illicit operation. Names, notable crimes and any money gained from their misdeeds will all appear. Just write one suspect and the search will branch out connections until the user finds their quarry. However, the effect is unbiased and will reveal any crimes the holder has committed to the proper authorities. Often with testimony of internal thoughts from other perpetrators or victims.
