It is a sad day when you are unable to trust the quality of the components you receive in order to construct your next Infernal Device. It’s bad enough when it’s a simple device failure. A transducer blacks out and the system shuts down and you need to replace it. Like Christmas lights.
But when the transmitter loops back on itself and effectively allows your machanosaur creations to roam free unsupervised, that’s just unacceptable!
Months of work ruined with robots either becoming target practice for the abominable inkeeper or sunk at the bottom of the Port. Perhaps those at least can be salvaged.
Even that I-must-stick-my-nose-into-everything Hienrichs woman was there. Scolding me for a few small fires! Bah! The woman needs to stick to her filing cabinets. At least she didn’t bring the Militia to storm my home this time.
Hmmm. Christmas lights. I wonder… Mechanical Helper Elves. I wonder if Phaedra is busy over the next few months?
