OriginEdit

Elisha Otis worked as a mechanic, always modifying equipment to make his work easier. While cleaning his factory, he wanted to find a more efficient solution of moving materials to the second floor. He and his sons created the safety elevator and decided to demonstrate it at the 1854 New York World’s Fair. He wound the platform to the top of the structure and ordered the rope to be severed; it fell and stopped a few inches above the ground. Orders began coming in rapidly, which allowed the American skyscraper to grow upwards.

EffectsEdit

Dropping from the top will cause the passengers to appear at the entrance of any building they choose. The front, back and service entrances are all available; locks and security will only cause the users to appear on the inside. Some users have reported being doubled over with a sudden fear of heights, which quickly dissipates. Usually.
