OriginEdit

The 1960's in the US are known as the "Hippie Decade". In response to the post-war industrialization, McCarthyism paranoia, and the growing civil rights movement, many of the youth of America took a counter-culture stance. Those within the "Free Love" spirit aimed for peace and harmony to defy rigid social structures and politics that they saw as oppressive. Common forms of protests included rock and roll concerts, marches, and drum circles.

UsageEdit

When placed in a circle, the drums will begin playing by themselves. They will produce a soothing rhythm that mimics many hearts beating as one. All listeners will feel relaxed and peaceful. The drums will immediately stop playing when one of them is taken out of the circle formation. The drums have a maximum effect radius of thirty feet.

CollectionEdit

Artie "borrowed" these from a police lock-up after a college demonstration ended with several arrests. Originally these drums were in the music section, but were moved to the Hall of Hate to placate the artifacts found there.

When the drums are placed in a circle, and the user plays Amphion's Lyre within that circle, the artifacts will create an invisible dome of peace that will repel aggressive outside forces. As long as the user keeps strumming the lyre the force field will hold.
