This is a little pet project of mine inspired by the beloved book "Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. But this time it is placed in outer planes of Planescape setting. Here we will follow adventures of A Little Petitioner from Mechanus and his encounter with people and creatures on his quest to find new friends.
Next gear the Little Petitioner visited hold entire office of beings that crunched numbers at lighting speed on their abacuses under supervision of pointy haired businessman who barely noticed little visitor.
Businessman demanded counting update from demarax, three eyed blue lizard with sparkly gemstone hide, and for those who do not know demaraxes never forget any piece of information they hear, so they are much better way for keeping information than books or files, but I dirges...
Demarax rumbled to his boss that they are currently at 5 432 107, and the Little Petitioner wanted to know more what is this all about. Businessman who wanted to get rid of annoying visitor told that they are counting gears of Mechanus. When Little Petitioner asked why they do that, boss answered that is because he owns them all.
Boss continued explaining that all it takes to own something it is and idea. He came to idea to own all the gears of Mechanus first, so he patented idea and now he was undisputed owner of plane, not like that king who did not own anything.
Little Petitioner was rather confused by this man who owned entire plane but ultimately was of no use to it, after all he owned his own little gear with rose elemental and 3 steam vents, for witch he cared for, but this man was of no use to gears of Mechanus.
Little Petitioner turned to say that to pointy haired boss but man was in his business again and saddened Petitioner leaved.
