Steam Dreamers of Inverness, Part 4 (The Final Story)
The Clockwork Kingdom
Back on the zeppelin, The Illuminato, our adventurers discover a clockwork kingdom inhabited by mechanical creatures. These windup automata are covered with dust, they haven?t creaked their joints in decades.
Each of the automata represents a different archetype: the Magician, the Wizard, the Witch, the Gypsy, the High Priestess, the Devil, the Trickster, and the Grim Reaper!
Then one night, the automata begin to move, they even speak, repeating quaint sayings, ?Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday,? or, ?Better the devil you know than the devil you don?t.? As they walk about, they wind each other up.
Beneath the city is ?The Great Clock,? it too has been silent for decades. The mechanical robots follow one another, spiraling down into the dark heart of the Clock. As they begin to wind the Clock, Jack begins to wonder, ?Can this be Doomsday?? 2 hours
