A sentient machine which churns out useless items, but may have a more important task. (actually an It).


An immensely complicated machine taking up 3 metres square.  The “brain” is held in a small silver box, and it has mechanical legs to walk on.  These are a bit frail, but stronger than steel.  There are four of them, and three claw arms equidistant with one pointing straight out of the back.


For as long as the dwarves can remember, the Lectic has stood within their halls, churning out bits and bobs (such as trousers, buttons, maps etc.) with no real pattern.  Among the more enlightened members of this race the Lectic is rumoured to have been built by the Star-Gods who came from the stars (surprise, surprise) millenia ago.  Then it had a purpose - now it has none.  This lack of purpose is blamed on one Kraz Boltzinger who one day decided to make the Lectic more clever.  How he went about this is unknown, but the Lectic went into the mad state it is now.
Some people still believe that the Lectic can be fixed, and among these there are people who believe the Lectic to be able to talk telepathically to dwarves in times of danger, or biding its time to a great event when it will start its work all over again.  Until then, the Lectic remains as unpredictable as ever.

Roleplaying Notes:

The Lectic can walk about at a slow speed, but can’t fight on purpose.  It can only be properly destroyed if the silver box is smashed, otherwise it will rebuild itself.

An alien parts-construction robot. Interesting.
I think it probably would be better under Items, but whatever.
It isn't very long or anything, but then again, there isn't much to say about the thing.
Good! Much better than previous submissions!

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
