OriginEdit

Mary Wortley Montagu was an English aristocrat and poet who wrote letters to her native Britain describing her travels throughout the Ottoman Empire. As a woman, she gained access to female privileged spaces and helped rewrite misconceptions earlier travelers had about the culture and its views of women and religion. Asides from writing, she advocated an early form of smallpox vaccination to be used. Witnessed in the bathhouses of Turkey, women would inoculate themselves by exposing their skin to the infected, building up immunity to the disease.

EffectsEdit

Allows the wearer to communicate with flowers while wearing. They're not amazing conversationalists, by any means, but you never know when you need to interview a daisy. Unfortunately, hope that flower knows emergency medicine just in case, because you’ll be experiencing worsening symptoms of smallpox.
