Music Box

Disambig This article is about the note. For the music boxes themselves, see Holger's Device.

This note is found in the rat-infested workshop in the Back Yard behind the Office of the High Overseer.


Overseer Humphrey,

I left you a copy of The Ancient Music so you might familiarize yourself with the principles I'm employing in this latest variation of Holger's Device, or the "music box" as the men call it. As you should know, it produces harmonies that render heretical energies or "magic" inert through counter-balancing mathematical principles. Read the book and then make yourself useful by finding us some subjects to test it on. This city is choked with corruption and superstition, so I trust you won't have to look far.
