Silver, that which Fuels and Protects the HTML Wanderpus
A ship of Iron or Wood will look like its been through a massive crash, if it survives at all. It is more than possible to travel rifts without Silver, it is merely a question of whether or not you survive.
The city's engineers have created a thermal power source using the silver mined to the south to conduct power throughout the city.
That, in tandem with the communications towers, the Wandercrew are able to keep the civilians of the city comfortable in these uncertain times.
Know of more Encounters the Wandercrew has had with Silver?

Who better to run Engineering than the very dwarf who seemingly breathed life into the shell of a rift engine once second and welcomed L.E.T.O. the next. 35 years old and hailing from the city of Lullaby, a center of Architecture and Engineering in the Seasonings World, its the strong bond between Engine & Engineer that ensures our Engineering Department is a force of innovation and power.
