Lore Lesson: Thautomatons
Within the last century, Londor has been making great strides in creating golems with artificial life. With the use of sophisticated arcane Mind Cores, Londorian engineers and artificers have been able to create a golem so different than before that it can’t even be put in the same class as a golem. Enter, the Thautomaton, a milestone in artificial life. These creations, while most are made to follow orders, have their own personalities and reactions to the environment. The Mind Cores used for them are actually far beyond the understanding of the engineer despite them being created by it. They can range from simple servants (closer to golem) to fully aware beings. So in short, the difference between a golem and a thautomaton is sapience, the ability to reason.
