When the warlock bound his will to the Great Wyrm he joined with not only its eternal lifeforce but the cosmic knowledge of the ancient being. Universal insight beyond the reckoning of mortal man was harnessed for the betterment of the halfling’s lives and township. Or so the Warlock believed. There may be no better example of this advanced comprehension than that of the Archanical Automaton.
Like all the contraptions of Wollockshire, these lumbering giants of Archanical mastery were made within the city, the secrets of their construction kept secret from the cunning Dwarves of the mountain who provided the raw components of their making. These machines gave unparalleled aid in the rebuilding of the city and the reshaping of the halflings’ hillock homesteads.
The Automatons are one of the greatest creations of the Gaffers Guild, who have taken the design dreamt up by the Great Warlock and turned it into a multi-role behemoth that can defend Wollockshire from any would-be attackers. The basic frame of the Automaton Laborer was key in the rebuilding of the township. However, the Brawler and Knight variants have taken it a step beyond creating weapons the Gaffers can turn upon the enemies of Wollockshire. The Knight is a frontline fighter, with increased protection and a massive gladius blade, while the Brawler swaps out the articulating hands for 2 massive morning stars, designed to wreck fortifications or vehicles employed by their enemies. The newest Automaton is a prototype model commissioned by the Great Warlock himself, designed for one of his warlock apprentices to pilot, casting spells utilizing an enhancement gauntlet to boost the effects of the spell.
