On the northern edge of Thole lies the mysterious Arcanum Laboratory - a long since abandoned place known for its ruthless and immoral magical experiments. One of those experiments conducted by the Tholean mages involved the baneful energy named Chromaton. It is believed that it has the power to bring inanimate metal to life, but the mages failed to consider the dangers in bringing the unrefined essence into contact with their own living flesh. Perhaps they succeeded, perhaps they failed miserably. The outcome has never been chronicled ... until now.
