Glacier Crawlers are an abominable marriage between tested and untested technology -- taking tried and true climbing equipment, and strapping it to a barely understood recently invented combustion engine. Most mountaineers and climbers wish for nothing to do with the vehicles at all, giving them the relatively popular nickname of "Abominobile".
Invented within the last 5 years, and generally described as "frighteningly loud" when compared to other technology of the modern era, Aeler's Engine is an internal-combustion device used to power all sorts of mechanical equipment. It uses highly flammable liquids that are pumped into a cylindrical blast chamber, where they are compressed and exploded, turning chemical energy into mechanical motion.
Should one wish for more power from the engine (though few rarely do), additional cylindrical chambers may be attached in series, resulting in more mechanical power.
