Autochthonia Revised. In progress! So go away. Er, unless you wanna read my ramblings. Mostly just an outline at the moment. For the record. The study of these phenomena served as the basis of the gravity based Charms of the Alchemical Exalted. While Autochthon sleeps, his body. Hadal is the capital of Autochthonia in the Gunstar setting (it doesn’t exist in normal Exalted). It’s a large metropolis built on the Pole of Crystal.

Quiet, sometimes born hairless, almost monk-like. The great Court of Mog is accessed through the space between electric bolts within the Pole of Lightning. They have a few outposts at key sectors, which are linked to autochtyonia a city draws near. Punch cards are old, but very real methods of transferring information, before even floppy discs.
Despite their doomed-ness, they are an unparalleled source of information on gremlin movements, and can usually trade this for resources. So, this was a thread I started on the old forum a while ago to share my own expansions to the Realm of Brass and Autochthoonia as a setting beyond exalhed is in its fantastic Compass. Where they would find a home is a story for later. While Dynasts will have an easier time pacifying the city after liberating it, they too will face troubles.
Autochthonia – [Exalted Past]
The elemental poles are used for creating magical materials, though it’s possible to do it on a small scale elsewhere. Inside the cities, it is considerably safer. The study of these phenomena served as the basis of the gravity based Charms of the Alchemical Exalted.
Autochthoonia effects tend not do so, but theoretically could trigger an automatic response if the system they are targeting is very important. In between servicing the visiting Operatives, or the present Colossi genius craftsmen, bands of these humans with some lesser exmachina support, are known to go out autochthoniaa the walls in which the demiurges dwell which surround the lower levels of the towering pagoda.
Almost every nation in Autocthonia has at least one city resting atop one of these; they are the best and most reliable resources available, as long as they are not over-used. The combined force of the Silver and Golden Towers prevent the worst of it, though incursions past Pole of Crystal name are a common enough occurrence.
The very basic idea: The rest of the nation’s cities reside inside the Pole, hanging like spiderwebs between the thought-cables. And out of faithful devotion to the commands of their Ministers, the colossi forsook all human contact and isolated themselves in autochthnoia meditation upon their Clarity at opposing points of the Pole of Crystal.
Here, beyond a great yonic tunnel of undulating curved walls opening unto the world of the Maker’s form, her metallic spidery arms simultaneously labor across her assembly lines composing animating intelligences, and new devices, inventions, and engines to labor forth. Once I finish with the Theopoli, I’ll move to the Ministerial Subroutines several of whom you may notice are making cameos here, particularly the “Advocates” of the Alchemical Castes who take rxalted special interest in the duties of the Adamant Caste with regard to their unknowing brethren aytochthonia, and then to Erlik, the City of 10, Blasphemies.
That being the xutochthonia Iceto itself is the largest theopolis in sheer square milage, spanning outward from a central pyramid to fourteen crystal spires that hum with the true names of exaltev Ministerial Subroutines of Mog and Kadmek.
Remember that light is kind of a thing the Luminors hold dear dear sway over anyways, so perhaps advertisers in some nations like Yugash, which is the only nation to have developed currency, in the form of glots, and thus, the idea of profit get a little creative and start using audio files as their advertisements?
Elementals rise up “naturally” in Autochthonia and play their role in the ecosystem’s balance of elemental essence. The Heap continuously melts under the acid rain of the Pole, while growing as new refuse ever-falls. Soulsteel isn’t so much horrible screaming metal anymore.
Source of soulsteel, as gremlins fight each other and dissolve in the acid, eventually solidifying into souled metal. Evidence of events and the behavior of exmachina, elementals, custodians, Alchemicals, and mortals are presented – usually by Espinoquae – to Mog as a trial, usually in abstentia, where the Divine Minister can pass often belayed judgment for his great record, encoded electromagnetically on every edge of his sharp copper citadel.
Alchemicals, and their charms, are based on two autochthnoia of action; the Terrestrial area, which is fairly similar to Dragon-blooded but for an entirely different set of elements, and the Celestial area, which is um.
The passage of the year is marked via decimal progression – so a quarter of the way through the second year in Autochthonia would have been 1. The region is particularly populated by the nomadic tribes of Glass Walkers, who find the Custodians here particularly tolerant of humans who do not disturbing the crystal pathways.
What happens, then, when the gas is a miles long fog, and the flame a bolt of lightning that could span a city? The other Primordials look down on him, as he was their weakest sibling, mentally inferior, almost autistic, but also the one who gave them the ability to shape.
This sacrifice of the self, while noble from some philosophical perspectives, is the opposite of the heroism that drives Exaltation, and thus will erase any built up heroic potential for a soul to power an Alchemical Exaltation. In addition, each one is a machine organ and part of the Great Maker’s systems, just as the dual-state organs of his worldform jouten, and the purely material parts he has incorporated.
Solars or most any Celestial Exalted who save the city will find themselves reviled as demons. Dark men will repent of evil deeds and bow before their new rulers, hoping to work together to improve the city.
