The Ticktock have only been around for a few decades, and no one remembers building them.
No two Ticktock are the same, pretty much the only trait they all share in common is that they are quite obviously not of flesh and bone, some wonder if they are even alive. A Ticktock’s chassis varies as much as the wind, and almost as often. The Ticktock of Root keep to themselves as deliberately as they can, while the so called “individuals” almost completely absorb whatever culture they find themselves in. Goblins fucking love Ticktocks, so many upgrades, so little time. Dwarves can’t get past the beauty they see in these animated sculptures. Humans can always use a hand from one of these walking boxes of tricks.
