OriginEdit

It's origin is unknown, but it is assumed to have been around for some time and may be the origin of the phrase 'hot potato', used to refer to an object that is quickly passed from one person to the next.

It is mentioned as being in the Warehouse in the tie-in novel, "A Touch of Fever".

EffectsEdit

A lump of browning, potato-shaped rock that gives off extreme heat when held. Holding the stone gives an immediate compulsion to toss it to the nearest person, making it a literal game of 'Hot Potato'. The game seems to only end when one person misses the chatch or the stone is intercepepted. Having no-one to throw it to will cause the person to continue holding it, seeming unable to drop it.
