Members of the Church of Her found an ancient technology in the ruins near the Stalwart Fortress and Ruined Kingdoms of Yore. This ancient technology enabled deeper learning and education in the ways of Her light.
A great polymath of the Church of Her sought further enlightenment and thrust himself into an ancient stone that was found at the centre of the Ruined Kingdoms of Yore. Through this, he became The Artificial God, a source of power for all of the technology discovered there. Such technology is what keeps Gregor the Savant alive after his encounter with Luta The Beacon.
The technology brought a strange calamity to the area and the ancient realms. Those inflicted with its plague became marked with never-ending life, but lost their minds in the process.
Members of the Church of Her use the technology associated with The Artificial God.
