OriginEdit

The Luddites existed in 19th century England as textile workers and weavers who fiercely despised the advent of new technologies. Mechanized frames, looms and other equipment increased the factory output but made their jobs obsolete and replaceable with less skilled labor. Many Luddites resorted to sabotaging machines and harming factory owners in protest. At one time, more British soldiers were fighting the Luddites than were fighting Napoleon on the Iberian Peninsula.

EffectsEdit

A hammer used by the Luddites to destroy power looms and spinning wheels in protest that it will make them lose their jobs. Gives the user a hatred for technology and a desire to destroy it. With a single tap, the hammer can cause machinery to badly malfunction or fall apart into a state of disrepair.
