PLACE DESCRIPTION
CRADLE OF CREATION

The central location in a Dwarven legend about the Beginning of All Things.

Bithtat Womb
Vein Desolation
Steel Stone Room
Cradle of Creation

A few lines of poetry and a bit of folk memory recalled by Tiberio and Arek. This is form a Gallantish translation of passages from Ancient Durgoshii songs that mention Steel Stone. Arek later recalls knowing the poem as "Bones of Heart"         

Bones of Sentar
Flesh shattered tree
Dwarf’s Ancestor
The first Unity

Bithtat Womb
Vein Desolation
Steel Stone looms
Cradle of Creation

Such tomes are popular with treasure hunters so the Libriohenaeum have a policy never to share books that mention Steel Stone with anyone outside their Order. They were too often found shredded, if they were ever found again at all. Tiberio was a friend to the curator of antiquities in the Libriohenaeum stacks in the Court of Bostik.

DENIZENS  
Red Rider, a.k.a. Foreign Officer, a.k.a. St. Cuthbert (1) First seen in the Dream of Horrors, he is called by other names such as the Mysterious Knight, the Commander or the Red Rider. His dress appeared tobe a military uniform of unkown origin and was exemplary right down to the polished buttons on his tunic. His armour and weapons were of the highest quality. He spoke something that sounded like heavily accented Orindish, and I understood, though I do not speak Orindish. While thinking, he twirls his well-maintained moustache. While not evil, his bearing bespeaks a man of arrogance earned from martial success and knowledge of the arcane arts. Before the on-rush of the evil hoard in the Dream of Horrors he said with a smile, "This I remember." A sketch of this knight in red was made soon after the first sighting but does not do him justice. (Domaldi); Frankie later revealed that the weapon the Red Rider was using in one of his hands, which appeared to be a powerful magic rod or wand that emitted a loud crack and an explosion of light, was, in fact, an especially advanced form of the bullet-throwing weapon used by the mysterious Feraln Elves and upon which she had done her graduate research. Wulfgar, a Primate of the Cuthbertian Church, explained to Nimbus his belief that the Red Rider was actually an Aspect of the god of Justice, St. Cuthbert.

PLACE DESCRIPTION
ELEMENTAL PLANE OF WATER    
DENIZENS  
Calibre (SG-6) A four-armed, spellbound Clockwork with a 360 degree field of vision, designed for underwater activities. It was discovered on board the Lusty Wench deactivated, seemingly being smuggled to agents of the Monotheocrate Order waiting in Göesse. Calibre contained a thrall module, an insidious enhancement used to turn Clockworks into helpless slaves. Calibre had no memory of a previous life, and, much to Frankie's horror, it regarded her as her as its new Mistress since she was the one who activated it. When Frankie's uncle, Sparks Kantankerin, and Keratone removed Calibre's thrall module, they activated a planar portal that had been installed inside of him. Doing so opened a portal to the Elemental Plane of Water and a ancient and mysterious Clockwork derelict, the Venture. As it turns out, Calibre was a special agent on board, constructed to contain a portal to Sentar on the Prime Material Plane. He is a priest of Cable the Liberator. On board the Daisy Cutter, Sparks Kantankerin removed the thrall module and Calibre was set free. Calibre is a 6'4" True-born Clockwork who gives the impression of newborn innocence out of it's six eyes. Even though one would judge Calibre as appearing war-like, it would seem that Calibre is confused over the knowledge it was born with, and using such knowledge in an unpredictable, new world. Calibre's "mistress," Frankie, has added to this confusion by contradicting the hard-coded imperatives of it's thrall module that Calibre can barely register as "commands". Calibre is made of an alloy that Frankie recognizes as 'arcanalloy', a nearly rust proof magical concoction. The runes inscribed on Calibre were recognized by Thalazaar as allowing a lower rate of failure when Calibre casts spells. (Frankie)
