Fabrication: History #9

And this week it’s about cyanite, the biocrystal of auramorphosis.

I’m less certain on the use of this transformative biocrystal than the other two — aurantite and flavite — that is, what the use of affecting changes in air composition and pressure and temperature would have for pre-industrial peoples, at least, though certainly air temperature modification would be quite useful for any people at any point in history.

The most useful, and probably the holy grail of cyanition scientists, would be weather manipulation: the manipulation of air pressure at high altitudes. And certainly I imagine such a blueprint would be available in the natural world, and so would be an accessible introduction into this art.

However, on the one hand, I think that close control of any weather created in this way — that is, specifically moving, say, a hurricane, from one place to another would require some kind of presence in the upper atmosphere where such weather occurs; on the other hand, I think any cyanite meteorological devices not in the upper atmosphere would rather create mists and fogs rather than proper clouds.

But besides the huge economic advantages from weather manipulation (and the likely huge changes of the environment of the world) and the comfort afforded by cyanitic central heating, I imagine some other uses, particularly in combat, such as generating clouds of toxic gases or areas of vaccuum.

Furthermore, other uses might include pneumatics (should rosete or pallidite prove insufficient for moving objects).

Thoughts? What might you use this system, or other systems for?
