OriginEdit

Henry Meiggs was an entrepreneur who got into the real estate in an early San Francisco. He constructed a pier extending two thousand feet into the Bay, providing businesses and fishermen a place to work. This venture stretched him financially more than he could handle. He obtained a book of warrants to the near defunct and penniless Street Fund, which the city government repeatedly signed without consideration. Before his fraud was discovered, he took a ship to South America and set up a burgeoning railroad business in Chile and Peru. Later in life, Meiggs repaid every cent he obtained from the false warrants and other debts and was later cleared of fraud a century after his death.

EffectsEdit

Opening to any page causes money to fall out. The value never exceeds the largest commonly used denomination of currency in the user’s location, although it is not uncommon for other valuable items such as jewelry and property deeds to appear. All of these funds will have been originally from unscrupulous and shady persons, or have been outright stolen from ordinary people. After a time, the user will feel the strong urge to meet with their unfortunate benefactor and repay them.
