Clockworks, also known as clockwerks, are a type of technology created from gears, steam, and other simple mechanical devices. The most famous clockwork mechanisms are automatons, including goblinshredders and the race of self-reproducing clockworks.
Other races have also created their own clockwork automatons; although these other designs generally lack sentience and the sophisticated ability to reproduce on their own. Makil, the goblin tinker wanted to make little tiny clockworks that could sneak around at night. The goblin Ziggler made a clockwork dwarf.
