Hymn 18: The boiler, it is thy heart.


The boiler, it is thy heart.

The valves, they are thy limbs.

The steam, it is thy blood.

Praise Karras, who forges the boiler,

and praise the Builder, who forges thee.

Psalm 13: When thou art born.


When thou art born, thou art blind, and weak, and squalling.

So is the ore, weak and crumbling when it is pulled from the earth.

Stoke thy forge, and burn away all impurity.

Lord Karras --


I write to you on behalf of my lord, who is much intrigued with your

services to other nobility. I am given to understand that your favours

are reserved for those who please the Mechanist Tower. My lord desires

to do so, but he is concerned that his gifts may be incorrect, or

perhaps misdelivered. Please let me know by messenger if I can do

aught to advise him.


 Jerome, of the house Thorburn

Description: A letter from Lady Einhorn to Karras

Location: between the benches, in the chapel area

Mechanist Seminary, level 1

M06B06 location

Lord Karras:


Your sermon was so inspiring. I never thought of it that way,

to be a little cog, floating around in a big boiler. SO warm and

toasty, you see? Please accept my compliments, and do tell me

you will come to the dinner we are having on Saturday.


 Lady Einhorn

M06B07Edit

Description: A letter from Tickspring to Gaspar

Location: on a table, in the Guard Barracks

Mechanist Seminary, level 1

M06B07 location

Master Gaspar:


Thy name was mentioned to our lord Karras as one who might be welcoming

to the future. Perhaps thou hast heard of the Mechanists, but thou

may be confusing us with our hoary forebears, the Hammers. Where they

spurned thou and thy kind, the Mechanists embrace those with a voice

in the city's future. Perhaps thou might attend a sermon at Angelwatch?

There be many wonders we would be happy to show thee in our workshops.


 Friend Tickspring

Description: A letter from Sheriff Truart to Karras

Location: on a small glass table, in a south room, in the chapel area

Mechanist Seminary, level 3

M06B08 location

Karras --


I received your note. I think you worry too much. I shall be there

in good time for our meeting, assuming that your loyal disciples are

willing to let me all the way in to your meeting hall this time.

There is much work to be done between now and tomorrow at twelve, so

leave me in peace until then.


 Gorman Truart, Sherriff

Description: Instructions for using the wax mold

Location: in the workshop area

Mechanist Seminary, basement level

M06B09 location

Friends,


If thou wouldst make a mold, press thine item into the wax press. Such 

impression being made, use the putty knife to scrape away the top layer of 

wax. Use this method, friends, to make molds of most small articles -- keys, 

cogs, gears, springs, and the like. 


To create a tool of hardened steel, give thy mold to Brother Mendelus, whose 

place it is to work the fires of the forge.

M06B10Edit

Description: A letter Karras to one of his engineers

Location: in the workshop area

Mechanist Seminary, basement level

M06B10 location

Friend Coltus,


Recent experiments have confirmed my fears -- mere water can indeed halt the 

Builder's Children! If a significant amount of moisture pools in the aft boiler, 

the result is complete paralysis! The weather has been agreeable of late, but if 

a thunderstorm were to strike....

Coltus, I task you with fixing this problem immediately. Water poured directly 

into the boiler may shut the Children down, but you must at least be competent 

enough to protect them from a simple rain shower!


-- Father Karras
