Clockwork

Clockwork mechanisms are common in The Gilded City. Designed and constructed by a variety of individuals who are collectively referred to as clockworkers, these mechanisms can be independent, like the automated street sweepers that roam the streets in the pre-dawn hours, or parts of buildings, like the mechanical lifts that help make the soaring towers of central city feasible.

While some clockwork is purely mechanical in nature, like the small wind-up toys that are popular with children, most is either powered by magic, or uses it as a linking mechanism between a driving gear, and one of the thousands of gears in the massive gearhouses of the city.
