OriginEdit

Elijah Parish Lovejoy was a minister and newspaper editor of the abolitionist paper the “Alton Observer. He was murdered by a pro-slavery mob in Alton who burned down his warehouse and destroyed his fourth printing press and abolitionist documents. He was quickly hailed as a martyr by abolitionists.

EffectsEdit

The press was partially destroyed by the mob and thrown into the river. It was fished out years later and only works when the parts are reassembled. It will protect all promotional materials such as posters, flyers, news publications and even video broadcasts from vandalism and destruction. The affected materials will become indestructible for a time and unable to be altered by others. If someone tries to change the message, their hands will be severely burned. The owner is more likely to be killed by a violent mob that disagrees with the user’s side.
