Mekogers combine mechanisms and magic in their art. Explain this. It was created to bring well-being to all shai goblins. We're lean and tall goblins, that have distant life thread to salamandermen, which gives us a bright red skin color... Our kiss... and partly because of these features, and our clumbersome nature, we had to make meka, or machines to do more precise work, mostly in warfare, but I don't explain this.

"Meka, or machines, is for the well-being of all shai. We're too clumbersome compared to other goblins to... do work without meka. Meka are built from metal, imprints and crystals and they work thousand times harder and don't need to rest like we do!"

You see demon, to a shai goblin there's no purpose or goal to life, but raiding dumber races of Beings always helps. I've found the opposite to be as good as well. But I tell you, creatures can be pretty stupid.

See demon, here's my life line in my hand. It's drawn like this, there are small lines crossing it and in the end it kind of becomes the skin in the side of the hand. You can end that lifeline to a hand that's worn out and seen its days or you can end it fighting, in someone else's life! He beats you, and you become him. There's no mystery or miracle to it, it's just the way goblin life is.

And demon as for the goal the other demons have set for me is to fulfill your commands the best I can and let me say this thing clear... I have no intentions to end up dead. I'm going to become a such powerful mekoger I can do these raids on my own.

Which I'm, oh by the way, now doing alone. So some help would be appreciated,

Which reminds me of your wish to portal more of your powers into this world through mekogency. I just need to raid the materials to modify my staff for that precise purpose! I need a piece of sickness stone, copper wires, a forge and a hot iron or glass rod, tin, some quartz and crystals… but quartz will do if no crystals can be found. Even some gemstones have abilities that I can use. They’re just too expensive to buy, so I came here to “find” materials.

That plan didn’t end up well, I ended up stranded

The mineral radiates something that makes everything sick. We've learned how to harness and change this radiation into "Kzha, the Mind tap. All kinds of wild opportunities to apply Kzha begin from there."

I don't know what that is! "No."

I can't build a mine! I didn't even bring a pickaxe with me. But I could subject lower beings to create a mine FOR me! Or find mines and raid them. "Let's just raid some sickness stone."

Yes. "Fermented fruits. I tackle madness. With them. My morale is always high! It's just that I don't badly want to die..."

A little hasty explanation of how things are in terms of Meka, will tell more later, but which lane are you most interested in?

Channels based on my inner powers, which are affected by my own domain, health and mental clarity.

Channels that are taken from things outside, from someone else, in this world I am in. These powers will not be available for Meka to channel if they're not in vicinity and will cease to function if they're tried to tap into from a different plane, or planet.

Channels that come from beyond, the trickiest ones to make function, but once functioning, they're more reliable and possibly more powerful than self-channels. If the mekanisms made to channel these powers break or wear out, the function may break.

Make a scope for the grappling hook (two glass lenses and a tube of medium grade plating, this time). Test out the range first; it might not be sturdy enough to pull your weight, but you can tie the chain to a rock and see how much weight the chain holds.

Damnit. That won't help much.

Okay, go look for some high-grade metals. Your grappling hook can help you explore more areas but only if you can get it to hold your weight. Seriously, this is embarrassing.

Also, try to build a parachute + wingsuit. This may sound crazy but if you sew some high-quality fibers in the form of wings on your armpits and crotch, IT WORKS. But make the parachute first, the wingsuit is glide-only and you need the parachute for a safe landing.
