OriginEdit

David Livingstone was a medical missionary and an explorer in Africa. His meeting with H. M. Stanley on 10 November 1871 gave rise to the popular quotation "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" Perhaps one of the most popular national heroes of the late 19th century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of interconnected levels: Protestant missionary work, working-class "rags to riches" inspirational story, scientific investigator and explorer, imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader, and advocate of commercial empire. His fame as an explorer helped drive forward the obsession with discovering the sources of the Nile River along with colonial exploration of the continent.

EffectsEdit

When read, the user is teleported to the nearest body of water. However, the diary cannot teleport itself. The user will gain an fixation on searching for missing persons.
