Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – June 20, 2012 – by Ashlynn – Being a monstrous clockwork servant of the one known only as Exodus, this foul contraption has already gained notoriety amongst many a would-be knight in weeks past. Of unknown artifice, these metal creatures hover through the air not unlike a gazer, seeking out their prey with a single red glass eye. Unlike a gazer however these servants employ no magic, instead favouring cold and calculated attacks with whirling heavy blades of brass and steel.
Give thought to the poor gargish folk of Ver Lor Reg, once the proud rulers of a gleaming white marble city standing resolute in Central Ilshenar. Now what remains is a broken and destitute people forced to take refuge in an unknown land, their own taken from them through the machinations of a mind too alien for us to understand.
It was foolish curiosity that allowed an endless tide of clockwork monsters to spill out of a place all believed sealed and it was not long before they had overrun the city, killing many and driving out the rest. Immediately they went to work transforming the city to suit their own ends and now Ver Lor Reg is a twisted and blackened mockery of it’s former self.
