The Ivory City
League of Gnome-Aligned Tinkerers
LGAT are the most prolific producers of the wondrous constructs and devices that keep Torum ticking, from cable cars and Dirigibles in the upper spires to fairy-powered street lights that sporadically dot the more upscale districts of the sprawling hives below. The Gnomes worship their technology, and fought a very, very bloody civil war aeons ago over what was viewed as technologically heretical – ‘Heretechnical’ as they would call it – a sentient magical construct. The guilds were established in the aftermath of the war to regulate the Gnomish propensity for creativity and keep their creations from getting out of hand again. Non-League Tinkerers are out there in the lower hives, but their existence is viewed as anathema by Leaguers and the Arbitrators are authorised to dole out the death sentence to any they find, and as such they typically work through intermediaries lest they be discovered, while they live reclusive lives of tinkering – something that hardly bothers them, honestly.
