OriginEdit

Architect Domenico Fontana worked on various Renaissance era structures in Rome and Naples, including chief overseer of St. Peter’s Basilica. Other projects include Archbasilica of Saint John Lateran and Lateran Palace, where he often reused designs to save effort. His most managerial work was plopping a 327-ton Egyptian obelisk right in the center of St. Peter’s Square. Over 900 men, 75 horses, tons of timber support and rope were used to squidge the base into a recessed pedestal.

EffectsEdit

Turns any load attached to static, stopping all motion and negating all couples of force. The final alignment may not always be in a desirable orientation, but will always be stable. Can suspend any massive structure from a single tether indefinitely when hung downwards. Each string once separated reforms into another strand of the same durability. For this purpose, aircraft in the vehicle areas are hung from the Warehouse beams to prevent clutter.

Due to the extreme positioning of each fiber, large amounts of force are also exerted on the held item. It ramps up natural tension and compression throughout the piece to keep it stabilized. Sudden punctures can disrupt the levelness and cause sections to crush inwards or crumble apart.
