One of the seven Great Artifacts brought from Atlantis during the Diaspora, it has been held by the noble house Phoenix for the last 200 years. An ancient orrery used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes, the device is a complex clockwork mechanism composed of 30 meshing bronze gears encased in an ornate glass case. The Antikythera Mechanism is an esoteric device that has remained a mystery, its purpose unknown until now! Its bronze gears have whirled to life once again, signaling the beginning of the Great Voyage and the return to fabled Atlantis! The nobles of house Phoenix claim this is the Prophecy foretold known as the Great Voyage, wether such claims are true or not is yet to be seen. It has however ushered in the Age of Adventure and the mad scramble of the noble houses to gather resources and influence to assure their prominence in the Great Voyage and return to fabled Atlantis!
