OriginEdit

Francois-Andre Danicon Philidor (1726 - 1795) was a French composer, chess player and a really sore loser. Considering to be the best chess player of his age, he won so much that when he started to lose he was known to 'accidently' hit the board shifting pieces so the game would be considered a draw. The only person he didn't get upset losing to was Phillip Stamma as he was considered to be one of the few chess masters in the world. Philidor's ego grew, even more, when he defeated Stamma in a match even though Philidor let his opponent go first along with counting any draw in his opponent's favor.

EffectsEdit

After being used time and time again during the matches where Philidor was about to lose the chess piece was imbued with his anger and petulance. When the pawn is laid on the side, done before sweeping off the board, it instntly becomes one thousand pawns causing chaos and mayhem and a restarting of the game.

CollectionEdit

The only way to return the thousand pieces to one is to neutralize the original piece. Even marking the piece proves to not be helpful as Agents are needed to dig through all the other pieces as well.
