The term "Order of the Gear" is a fan-made term. I know the Omegacron site has popularised the term, and it appears to make things tidy to have all the factions following the same formula. It should be noted that the information on that site is great fun and well-done, but much of it is fan-imagined. "The Mechanist Order" is the canon term. And although they made revolutionary progress with the Gear, they also made revolutionary progress with the Boiler.
Quoted in a TMA game manual, since it popped up in a search, and not everybody has this quote available:
"The Master Builder came unto us. He built for us a new house, and the house was like His house. And he gifted us with knowledge, and we learned to use Boiler and Gear. That unto us would come His Paradise, and there would be no pain. --Mechanist Rote Texts for Novices"

I'm editing this quite a bit here, removing references to Earth-religions as they have no place in the wiki and are actually quite funny (you know what they say when a historian looks at a wiki and can tell the mistakes when the average readers cant? Yeah, I got that feeling when I read this; the protestant reformation was nothing as described). Anyways, I'm fixing up the article to make it look less dingy as well. We don't need speculation or even "oh well, they resemble this because we think..." No, we don't need that. Dreadhand 09:21, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
- BTW, shouldn't this be a page for the Mechanists, not a category page? 184.108.40.206 15:48, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
- We are using category pages as articles when there are large amounts related sub-articles. --Sxerks 16:22, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
- Cool, that should be make it easier for readers and editors to scan through related articles. Dreadhand 17:21, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
