OriginEdit

Hans Christian Ørsted was a Dutch physicist who first discovered electricity could induce magnetic fields, leading to the combined idea of electromagnetism. When experimenting with a compass needle, Ørsted noted how it changed direction from north when exposed to electric current. He was also the founder of predecessor organizations which eventually became the Danish Meteorological Institute and the Danish Patent and Trademark Office and friends with other notary figures of the Danish Golden Age.

EffectsEdit

Exposing to any point will cause that area to spike in electrical energy and magnetic field intensity. Objects and people will be bathed with additional energy, but they can also cease functioning or catastrophically crumble due to the unordinary levels of energy. Damage is especially severe towards metal objects, as they will fold inwards like origami until they recede into a formless lump of material. The strength of the effects is reliant upon the amount of scientific knowledge the user possesses and their skill for solving problems.
