The Gewgaw Arsenal is a general term for the world’s collection of artifacts, devices and objects that appear to be linked in some fashion to each other and to Atherton’s Puzzle. Many of them were created during the Demiurge Plague, but a few are known to have appeared long before or after that period.
The Arsenal is generally broken down into three categories of devices: Core Gewgaws, Major Gewgaws, and Minor Gewgaws. There are only four universally-recognized Core Gewgaws and a dozen or Major Gewgaws, but there are thousands of Minor Gewgaws. Scholars and Zebanites often dispute the categorization of some items in the Gewgaw Arsenal, but the following list represents the greatest consensus of each class.
- Atherton’s Gate
- The well-known garden gate at Zebediah Atherton’s home is considered a major key to Atherton’s Puzzle.
