I have run low on parts
lately. I have to constantly
scour the junkyard for useable
parts. It is odd that when a
clockwork stops working
completely I can track it as
if it was a deceased creature
of nature. The mana that
powers the clockwork must
leave behind a residual aura
as if it was alive. I have
since made a Necrotic Diving
Device that allows me to more
accurately track the remains
of the clockwork that has
fallen. To make the device I
used all the same items as I
did for the gauze press but
used a Tiny Jade Inlaid Coffin
instead of bandages as the
focus of the machine. The
necrotic power of the Jade

Coffin helps the Divining
power of the machine. Believe
it or not, I got lost in the
junkyard yesterday. I spent a
long time collecting springs
and gears and lost track of
the time. It got dark and I
could not tell which direction
was which. I had left my
trusty compass back on my
dresser because I did not
expect to be out so long. I
had to sleep out in the scrap
metal last night. This morning
I finally got my bearings and
headed back to my workshop. I
decided to place the compass
into my breastplate that I
wear out while collecting
materials (some of the
clockwork have gotten quite
aggressive). I took my gnomish
compass and attached it to a
coiled spring. I then attached

that spring to my steel
breastplate. I created a
switch mechanism that
automates the compass to come
out for easy viewing, the only
extra thing I needed was a
steel ball bearing to allow
the switch to move from on to
off. A class six mana battery
is required to keep the switch
and automated motors
constantly working. While out
in the junkyard I got tired of
lugging around the huge
toolbox that I own for simple
tasks. I decided to form a new
toolbox that is more portable.
I placed a toolbox mold, small
brick of high quality of ore,
coiled spring, metal bit, and
a flask of water into my
toolbox and made a nice small
toolbox that was a lot easier
to carry around.
