The Big Mistake
A robotic empire from an alternate Earth. They are living machines made of springs and sprockets, powered by arcane generators. The Prescis did not fare well during the Big Mistake, and one city represents all the assembled refugees who were cut off when this section of their land disappeared into ours. They craft incredible clockwork armor that can be bought at the right price.
The city of the Prescis assembled out of the refugees of the Big Mistake, and lately it has come under attack from hideous mutated insects. Sword beetles, Gamma Moths, even Firebelly Arns. The attacks seem too organized for such dumb creatures…
Prescis are big, sturdy, clockwork robots. They are brass, bronze, steel, copper, gold, you name it. Prescis buildings are tall and change height frequently on large hydraulic pistons, but their most striking feature is that they have tank treads. The city constantly orbits the center of town, so if you get directions it will be “go here and wait until the building comes”. The Prescis have hundreds of tiny clockwork flying creatures darting about the city delivering messages and carrying parts. Their weapons and armor are glass-faced so you can see the springs and gears inside that give them special properties.
