OriginEdit

Johann Augustus Sutter (1803 - 1880) was a German born Swiss pioneer of California known for his association with the California Gold Rush when he discovered gold along with James W. Marshall. With his associate they creates Sutter's Mill and eventually establishing Sutter's Fort in the area that would eventually becomes the state's capital Sacramento. When gold was first struck in the fort Sutter wanted to keep it quiet threatening his workers into silence however one of the men who had been there at time of discovery was a merchant and newspaper publisher who released the information. At the news large crowds started to pour in almost destroying everything Sutter worked for so instead he deeded the land to his son. His son, John Jr. was the one who really created the community around Sutter Fort, which Sutter Sr. deeply resented.

EffectsEdit

When struck into stone gold ore will start to form in the stone, if mined user becomes paranoid and unwilling to use the gold. After three days in one place the gold returns to stone state.
