Pioneering new vistas in technology, the Kanmusu are sentient autonomous ships.
Not to be confused with autons, auxons are small machines, 1 to 3 inches in length, that are used for large scale, long term, resource extraction.
A secret project of the Anunnaki, the first post-human phenoclade
Nearly every primitive culture has had rituals and celebrations to guarantee the proper passage of the seasons and to ensure the fertility of crops and animals. Oversight of these ceremonies was generally the provenance of local kings or priests.
Suppose that the adventurers dispatch one of these fellows. The local peasants may become hysterical, fearing famine and death will stalk the land. Alternatively, they may want one of the new heroes to become king. For a while, this can be a good thing, but the first time that the crops fail, the superstitious locals will want to sacrifice their new leader.
