OriginEdit

Walter Winchell was an American newspaper and radio gossip commentator that was famous for his ability to get the truth out of people.

EffectsEdit

The artifact is activated when the wearer of the tie clip asks someone a question; the tie clip allows the user to know the answer before they can respond. However, after a person is affected by the artifact, they slowly lose their memories like a kind of accelerated Alzheimer's. Eventually, the victim's involuntary systems will begin to shut down until they forget how to breathe and die. The whole process takes a few days after being affected. The only way to reverse the process is to have the person losing their memory look at the cuff links.

CollectionEdit

This artifact was first discovered after a commercial airlines pilot forgot how to fly his plane while 7,000 ft over Seattle. Fortunately, the co-pilot landed the plane safely, but the pilot's mind continued to deteriorate and 2 days later he thought he was 5 years old. Before the artifact was recovered, four more people became affected, although luckily no one died. Secretly, the grand-daughter of Lewis Thomson, a reporter who worked with Winchell, gave the tie clip to a lawyer who was defending her son's friend in court. She was hoping the lawyer would wipe all of the witnesses' memories by accident, since it was, in fact, her own son who was guilty of the murder of which his friend stood accused.
