Vattery — a type of production company.

About Edit

A vattery is a general term for production factories throughout the Spires. Since the inhabitants of the Spires never come into contact with the ground, they must find alternative methods of getting items that would commonly be gotten there.

Types of Production Edit

Known Vatteries Edit

Food Edit

Since it is impossible to keep livestock in the Habbles, meat is grown in the vatteries. One such vattery is the Tagwynn Vattery, where Bridget Tagwynn spent her childhood.[2]

Other foodstuffs, such as fruits and vegetables, are grown in "water garden" vatteries with "nutrient-bearing vatsand".[3]

Crystals Edit

Even more important, the Lancaster Vattery—the vattery of House Lancaster—is used to produce powerful crystals. They have a monopoly on the crystals that power the Albion Airships, and so their vattery is extremely valuable. They also make the best crystals of any Spire.
