Bit of an interesting chapter 1 echo here: some field medics doing the same work that Syr’Nj was doing in her first appearance. Such work was frustrating for her, and it, uh, works out even less well for them.

Well, at least they didn’t get eaten by sharks first.

Bit ironic that it’s goblin engineering known for making things blow up, according to the early text, but most of the memorable explosions in this story are the work of human hands, this one under a goblin’s narration.

In his later years, Goblaurence would write a text and teach a course called “Philosophy for Engineers.” Though the scroll would prove popular, enrollment in the course would be limited to smokers only.
