A colossal machine, they are a fork-like structure with two very tall blackened prongs that meet at the base entering the floor. Metal panels, large cogs and gears and various piping can be expected in the vicinity, and even switches and levers. A distant rumbling can also be heard more often than not from deep within the surround walls, in all directions.
These machines seemingly lie dormant, despite the input and experimentation of the human race. They have come to be left alone in modern times, and even revered or worshipped by some due to the mystery of their unknown origins. While many forms of legend exist and swirl around these monolithic structures, one thing is clear. They are meant to produce a great reverberant sound.
The reality of the great machines is much more sinister than just noise. Acting as giant tuning forks, when activated they produce a frequency great enough in unison it can be heard by Urye and awaken his dormant Ka found floating above the clouds to begin their observations and planning of Mir's great retooling, often foretold by cultures around the world.
There is a known Signalum beneath Aic Ocuel in Ur that is believed to be malfunctioning and causing the locals to find themselves affected by the condition known as Vibratum Hysterium. This fear of the disease and uncertainty in the town of the origins of the affliction has brought the attention of a group of Balal as well, eager to begin feeding off of the negative emotions of the terrified populace.
