Introduction[edit | edit source]

Ottmar Mergenthaler was a German inventor who created a special printing press called a Linotype machine. His new machine revolutionized the newspaper creation industry.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When the machine is turned on, it allows the user to rewrite reality by typing in the machine. However, if someone stays on the machine for too long, they will have a compulsion to type in the machine. The only way for this artifact to be stopped is to apply Neutralizer on the tape rolls.
