OriginEdit

Martin Kaylor was supposed to return home from his gunner position in Korea when his regiment was attacked. Captured by the Chinese, they marched for 11 days across the icy mountains. When their interrogators tried to convince them American capitalists were the true enemy, they refused. They only began to agree weeks later out of hunger, but never actually believed what they said.

Realizing the plan was never to release their “re-educated” comrades, Kaylor and his POWs decided to escape. After a confrontation with several guards, they crossed the Imjin River and ran until a helpful man gave them shelter in an abandoned house. They gaped at the wallpaper, the first seen after months of imprisonment. In a stroke of insight, they tore up the wallpaper to signal a passing American plane, and were scooped up back to safety.

EffectsEdit

Will tear apart and reform itself to create large distress messages. They will normally be visible from several miles away but if they are still too small, the paper will reform into flat sheets, cover any plentiful material and integrate it into the larger design. Is mildly resistant to strong wind, frost, moisture and insects, but weak when exposed to heat or chemicals. The stronger a person’s beliefs are, the hungrier they will feel until to the point of starvation.

StorageEdit

Currently adhered to its own separate partition, as it has been known to create a distinctive ripping sound when fighting its adhesive, giving an auditory cue to detect activation.
