Blacklore Devices

by John Walter Biles

The pathetic Blacklore Elves of the Hollow World are able to survive despite being total losers because the Immortals pitied them, constructing ‘technological’ automatons and other devices (which look technological but are actually magic) to serve them.

These poor robots have the job of doing most of the real work in the Blacklore Valley of the Hollow World. They cook, they clean, they make goods, etc, etc. However, they were constructed to be completely subservient. Some are generic ‘YES MASTER’ robots; others have some degree of personality if not enough to free themselves of the yoke of their idiot masters.

*Blacklore devices are based on a 5 possible state system instead of just two: Four on positions (Air, Earth, Fire, Water) and one off (Entropy). This allows for much faster computing and much less space being needed for memory storage.
