As you return home from work one evening, you find a large shipping package waiting for you in front of your apartment. Bringing the package inside and opening it, you find a letter and hundreds of vials containing a mysterious red powder. You decide to inspect the letter.
WARNING: PROPRIETARY INFORMATION. DISCLOSURE OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS PACKAGE AND THE LETTER CONTAINED MAY RESULT IN CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.
Dear Valued Tomorrow Industries Consumer,
Congratulations, you have been selected for a free trial of a new product we have developed. Our marketing department has decided to call it Manacite. What does it do? We’re not entirely sure what it doesn’t. We have discovered a nearly infinite number of uses for Manacite, but we have sent this sample to you to research one possible application. Our R&D department has found it has certain animating properties to it. This trial sample is to test in a real world application the duration and other limits of this animation process.
What do we mean by animating properties?
Our Research and Development department has discovered that by applying Manacite to ordinary household objects, it creates a synthetic aura of life. Household chores will literally do themselves by sprinkling some on your appliances. Anything under the influence of Manacite is under your complete and total control. No verbal command is beyond its limits. Just document what you use it on and how you command them and you’ll be rewarded with a lifetime supply if you so desire.
WARNING: ALWAYS ENSURE A VERBAL COMMAND IS IN USE WHEN APPLYING MANACITE. LACK OF A VERBAL COMMAND COULD RESULT IN ANIMATED OBJECT BEHAVING UNPREDICTABLY. TOMORROW INDUSTRIES WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY IMPROPER USE OF MANACITE.
Please enjoy your supply of Manacite responsibly.
