OriginEdit

In 1609, spectacle makers, competing business owners and neighbors Hans Lippershey and Zacharias Janssen both invented the first telescope. Because it was impossible to prove who had made the device first, a patent was given to neither man and was later presented to Galileo in 1610.

Galileo had observed the abilities of the telescopes and noted their unusual properties, though even by building off the improvements of Jacob Metius he was unable to properly replicate the artifacts and settled for observing the heavens, where he formed his own legacy of fame.

EffectsEdit

Contrary to the patent master, it is in fact possible to see which telescope came first, at least for the Warehouse. In truth, because of thier intense rivalry and close proximity, Hans and Zacharias accidently invented the exact same telescope at the exact same time. This resulted in not two seperate telescopes, but a single one that somehow came into existance at two places at once.

Because of this, when one telescope is moved, the other moves with it and if one is damaged then the other shows the same wear. The image seen from the lens is a composite image of what the individual scopes would show.

If the lens are aligned together, the resulting paradox of the scope "viewing itself" creates a beam of energy that obliterates everything in its path that is shut off when the lens are angled away.
