Geotech is short for Geological Technology. This refers to the use of gemstones being fused with machinery in order to power it with the magical energy which a gemstone attracts. This science is studied in depth in Tamfor at the University of Technological Advancements.
Utenden GeoTech The Utendens are the pioneers of GeoTech. Their Artificers discovered the possibility of using the magic streams as a source of energy and as such the Utenden Republic has extended its borders along magic streams where their technology will work.
How GeoTech Works GeoTech uses the mysterious power of gemstones (usually amethyst or quartz) to attract small amounts of nearby magic energy. Since this energy is always being pulled towards Crater Lake along magic streams the geotech only works when near these streams. Utenden Artificers have learned how capture this energy and use it to power machines. This technology is nowhere near an exact science yet. Gemstones used in the channelling are known to break unexpectedly and Artificers capable of creating stable and reliable machinery are difficult to find and train. Adding to all of these problems are the vast expense of geotech. Gems are not inexpensive and Artificers charge a princely sum for their services.
