Helstorm Rocket Battery

The Sunmaker

The last contraption that the scatterbrained Talabheim alchemist Jurgen Bugelstrauss ever made nicknamed the Sunmaker, for it fired specialist phosphoric rockets that burned with a blinding brilliance. By attaching silken canopies to these projectiles in order to slow their descent, Bugelstrauss had lit up the night sky above the Talabec for hours at a time. Karl Franz and his diplomatic escort had been able to see the other side of the river as clear as day, even in the dead of night.[1a]

Unfortunately, the alchemist had met a grisly end a week later in an incident involving a barrel of gunpowder, a twelve-foot length of Cathayan bamboo, and a badly castrated boar. His experiments were sealed away in the Talabheim dockhouses the day after his funeral, a deafeningly memorable occasion that culminated in the firing of no fewer than six Helstorm rocket batteries and three dozen counts of indeliberate arson.[1a]
