The Great Clock
We were positioned outside, waiting for the merchant to leave the shop, and my eyes went to the immense clock over the Cogni Agnum that was slowly ticking down the hours and minutes and moments that we spend in this sticking city. The large delicate hour hand ticked forward and the bell for the hour sounded across the streets and echoed off the stone of the volcanic walls. It was time. --9th of Tin, Year 46
Purpose / Function
To accurately and reliably provide the citizens of The City of Stadupglod with the current time and date.
Built in year 23 by a brilliant Gnomes named Doctor Professor Timey Wimey who had studied time for ages during the immortal era. But she disappeared without a trace twenty years later, and hasn't been seen since. The day to day repair and maintenance is now carried out by her old assistant, Doctor Sir Mister Brazican Tirisiousis Clockycer and his assistant, Assistant Sir Danan Carros Xonerdob the First.
