OriginsEdit

Meshach Browning was a frontiersman and hunter in the backwoods of Maryland. His memoir Forty-Four Years of the Life of a Hunter was originally written about his hunting years, recounting his times woodworking and learning animal behavior.

EffectsEdit

Causes free association writing. When the quill is placed on a piece of paper, the person enters a trance like state. Their irises turn hazy and lose all color, becoming pale white. Their body goes rigid and they can only move their hand, sometimes their mouth to speak. They start writing out random words, then zone in on either a particular experience or memory if the person concentrates on it. If not, they will write out their emotional state they’ve been feeling. It is useful as both a memory retrieval and interrogation artifact. However, lingering too long on a particular memory will cause the user to feel compelled to relive, or ament it. They will never feel inclined to leave and become trapped within the ghost of their past.
