Nerash: I think this was a made-thing, not a creature. It had nothing within it but dry clay; no organs, and no gears like the things made by the Tech-Mages. It was hard to hurt- blows did not harm it until it was wetted, and then it could be harmed. There was a hammer, which Ravenae has, which seemed to be made to harm the thing. The beings that made this complex were mad; I can think of no other conclusion, given the strange things we have found.
