Flask, Obscure Automation


Flask was a gift in 17c from the Lord Chamberlain of the Engineer’s Guild, presented to his counterpart in the Alchemist’s Guild at a state banquet, as a token of the long standing alliance between the two institutions. It was an unusual and entirely unexpected gift of the moment, a remarkably generous yet carefully calculated curiosity. For through the acceptance of Flask were the Alchemist’s Guild’s High Council bound by protocol to honour a trade agreement which had become increasingly obsolete in previous years; one that they had already voted to absolve themselves of.

Flask is available for pre-order as part of The Alchemist’s Guild: The Lure of Gold.
