OriginEdit

Joseph Moir was a prominent builder, ironmonger, citizen and shot manufacturer in 19th century Tasmania. The process of forming shotgun pellets involved dropping molten globs of lead down a tall tower, causing them to turn into spheres and harden when they hit the water below.

He is best known for building the Taroona Shot Tower, but also built St.Mark's Anglican Church in Pontville. He even issued tokens in his own name during a currency shortage in the colony, and served as an alderman on Hobart City Council.

EffectsEdit

Flicking or throwing the token will cause it to leave the user’s hand at hundreds of miles per hour, comparable to that of a fired bullet. It will leave a large entry mark wherever it hits and create a huge cavity from the exiting side. The token will deform and fold inwards on itself, but will start reforming immediately by straightening out its contours.

Accuracy is an issue at times, as it is entirely dependent on the user’s hand-eye coordination alone. Each throw leaves the user’s hands with miniscule cuts, invisible to the naked eye. They will fill with melted iron fillings and slowly work into the user’s hand, solidifying them into bars of iron from the inside out.
