OriginEdit

The crossing of the Delaware River under Continental Army general George Washington was a last-ditch effort to gain a surprise victory. The army was suffering from high casualties and low morale, which required Washington to think creatively. He planned on surprising the Hessian mercenaries in Trenton by attacking on Christmas Day and retaking the city. Their plan included launching through the unforgiving frozen waters of the Delaware and arriving undetected until the moment was right. The Hessians were caught off guard and captured, while the American forces returned to their bases in Pennsylvania with prisoners and supplies in tow from their audacious move.

EffectsEdit

The first person that touches it essentially becomes the vessel’s commanding officer. The craft will immediately swivel around until it settles into a certain direction, with the front sporadically frosting over. Along that axis is where the user will find their enemy’s weakest or most exposed point of interest, whether it is a structure or person. The presence of multiple pear nearby will cause the boat to spawn a duplicate, thinking it needs to accommodate for more passengers.
