- Abnormality Log
Portrait of Another World (O-09-91) is a HE tool Abnormality in the form of a tall empty canvas, which is held by a black metallic ornamented support. It is dusty and start empty at the beginning of each day.
Portrait of Another World's ability is a single use, which makes the employee using it be marked and painted on the Abnormality. The status mark consist in a circular gray face of hollow eyes and mouth, with black substance dripping from them. These float above the marked employees, who will be also covered in smoke or dust.
The first-marked employee, the one who is painted in the canvas, will transfer any Damage taken from any source to a second-marked employee in the facility at a 1.5x increase. (However, this transfer will not work if the second-marked employee is inside Shelter from the 27th of March and the first-marked will retain the damage instead). The defenses still act on the damage transferred. When the second marked employee dies, the mark will move to another employee. After employees keep dying by the transferred damage or the damage transferred accumulates to 100, the portrait of the agent on the canvas will change to one that features a mask and a second change will feature what appears to be employees around a black tree. Depending on the portrait's appearance, the transferred damage will be increased to 2.0x at change one or 2.5x at change two. If there are no more agents to be marked, the first marked employee will die and the paint will disappear.
If the first marked employee dies by another source except by the portrait (other Insta-death effects), the portrait will go blank and can be used again. If another employee tries to use the portrait when there is already a marked employee, the originally marked employee will melt and die, and the new employee using it will be painted and marked instead. If the currently marked employee interacts with it, nothing will occur, however it still counts as a use.
