Origin[edit | edit source]

Roger Bacon was a 13th century philosopher and scientist who focused on studying nature through experiment, not thought like many scholars before. In effect, he was one of the earliest proponents of the scientific method, inspired by previous scholars such as Aristotle and Alhazen. Some of his works include his reformation of the calendar, introduction of gunpowder to Europe, supposed attempts in alchemy and his work in optics and eyesight, based off those from earlier Muslim scientists.

Effects[edit | edit source]

This robe belt was exposed to some of Bacon’s research into optics. When worn, the user’s vision is increased, allowing for greater detail perception, color brightness and a larger visual field. However, to accommodate for the larger influx of visual information, other parts of the brain start to process visual stimuli. The other senses are weakened, with sound and smell quickly dropping; touch and taste almost completely vanish.
