Alvyurin Ekkatran - Lessons of the past
So, someone named "littleprelude" was talking about surveillance systems. Keriwen brought this to my attention and reminded me of an answer: Golems! Our group of Exiles hasn't done much with golems in the recent past, but with Keriwen's help, I was able to find a few books with details. So now we just have to wait for Pallantar's engineers to make one or two. Finally, some progress!

Golems - interesting. I associate that word with a humanoid figure made of clay and animated by holy or magic words. Is that what you're talking about?

Apparently the System chooses the best word for the translation. It's fortunate you have a word describing a similar concept. A golem is, in simplest terms, an artificial life form consisting of normally lifeless materials magically animated by a controlling spirit. Clay and stone are the most traditional materials, yes.
