OriginEdit

A famous Dutch legend states that Hans (or Hansje) Brinker plugged a leaking dike near Spaarndam with his index finger, thus averting a mass flood and saving thousands of people. In actuality he did not plug it with his finger, but with a thick twig he picked up near the dike and went off (probably doing mischief). When he came back later that night, he looked at the twig when some farmers saw him, thinking we was there all day and night plugging the hole in the dike. Hans never corrected them and he was made ‘Hero of Haarlem’.

EffectsEdit

The twig is saturated with the force of all that water and can be pushed in any surface. When it is pulled out, the full force of the water will come crashing down. The person that pulls out the twig will get the first ‘blast’, so it’s a dangerous artifact.
