Origins[edit | edit source]

The Trail of Tears was the forced removal and relocation of Native American tribes in the southeast out into the western territory of Oklahoma. Some of the tribes were Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, Chickasaw and Choctaw, which many white Americans considered the most civilized tribes because of their adaptation of ideas like a writing system and a constitution. Many died on the journey from starvation, disease and exposure to the weather. Pushed forwards by President Andrew Jackson, it helped foster dislike towards native tribes and cause Indians’ territories to dwindle away.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Transports the wearer to a snowy wasteland, similar in appearance to the Trail of Tears. The only way to escape back to reality is by reaching the end of the makeshift Trail of Tears while wearing the quilt. The person is vulnerable to all elements while on the trail. Most minor and non-life threatening injuries received in that world will dissipate when they are brought back into the real world.
