URU Guild Of Maintainers Lamp by Pirkleations URU Guild Of Maintainers Lamp by Pirkleations
The Guild of Maintainers (also known as the "Maintainers Guild", or simply the "Maintainers"), was one of the most important of the D'ni Guilds. They fulfilled several functions including safety, security and military in regards to Linking Books and Age Exploration. The guild crest is an open book with an unblinking eye above it, and the guild color was burgundy.
Once an Age's writing was deemed suitable, a Maintainer linked to the Age using an Environmental Verification Suit, or EV Suit for short, to verify the Age's stability.
The other role of the Maintainers Guild were similar in nature to modern day police and military. They were the only guild (as far as we know) permitted regular access to weaponry, such as rifles and pistols (although citizens could access daggers). It was the Maintainers who investigated crimes, captured the criminals and when tried, imprisoned them appropriately. A majority of these criminals would be sent to a prison controlled solely by the Maintainers.
The Maintainers owned numerous Ages. One such Age, written exclusively for the Maintainers, was Gahreesen, which appears to have been a mix of both training and prison facilities.

This is a D'ni Desk Light that could very well be imagined sitting in the work space of a D'ni Maintainer. It is 10 inches tall, 7 inches wide and 3 inches deep with a convex dome that lights up, displaying the Guild of Maintainers emblem. It is powered by 3 AAA batteries in lieu of fire marbles.

And within 12 hours of being up for sale, it has SOLD. :)

Thanks, Luv!

I'm working on another one that has a different base, but the same lighting effect. I'll post it here when it is done.

As for "golden hands", I think they are more of a Dutch Boy pale flesh tone. But it's not always what you got, but how you use it. Right? LOL

That's a cool piece. Could a Maintainer read comfortably by its light, or is it more like a nightlight?

Thanks!

It's more like a night light. Even Maintainers sometimes need a little comfort in the dark. :)

You're welcome!

Yeah I think so too, have you thought about making more? Or different styles?

I'll likely be doing more "one-offs" in various styles, since it is so challenging to find similar pieces.

I think that would be less hard, you know? Not as much stress with finding/making exact parts. Or, if you are up to it, sculpt out/make molds of parts that are hard to find/construct.

Just a thought. :P
