Origin[edit | edit source]

Used by famed poet Robert Frost on the farms that he owned in New Hampshire. During this time, he taught English at Amherst College with his colloquial approach to language "the sound of sense." Frost's personal life was plagued with grief and loss, as many of his family suffered from illnesses and died early in his or their lives. Frost himself suffered depression that appeared to run in his family.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When holding the pitchfork and when reminiscing about past events, the user can travel back to that event and change it. Anyone holding the pitchfork also will travel along with the user. Whenever an event is changed, their family usually suffers from illness or premature death.
