A Clocktech Automaton

This programmable mechanical marvel would fit perfectly into Vidonia, the main geographical region of my renaissance fantasy role-playing game Gondica and my novel Spiran och staven. The Mechanurgist magician-artificers in that culture construct devices like this, though often even more fantastic.

I also think that it could be appropriate technology in the Swedish 18th-century horror RPG Götterdämmerung.

I found this delightful picture at the Hollow World blog (link >>>), a place dedicated to daredevil adventures inside Earth in the vein of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Pellucidar stories, Lin Carter’s Zanthodon series, and Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.
