Golem Control Seals


The recipe for Golem Control Seals, as shown in the Thaumonomicon.

Golem Control Seals are ethereal, after being placed, items that issue commands to nearby Golems, allowing all capable Golems within range of the seal to perform the task specified by it. Not all Golems are capable of following commands from all Seals, however, as some Seals have traits that are necessary to perform its task, or traits that it forbids Golems from having in order to perform the task. There are a multitude of Seals, and as so, tasks, that can be created, all with separate recipes from one another.


To place a Control Seal, one must simply right click on any exposed face of a block. Up to 6 Seals can occupy 1 block space, one on every available face, but no more than one Seal can be placed on a single face. However, when placed, Seals become ethereal.


All Control Seals have a GUI to which one can tweak the settings of the Seal, allowing Golems instructed by it to carry out tasks to a more specific degree. However, Seals become ethereal when placed, making them invisible and intangible, meaning that one cannot normally interact with them. With the item described below, however, they can not only be seen, but also interacted with.


Golem Control Seals all have different recipes depending upon their individual function, but a blank Seal can be created at an Arcane Workbench with 1 clay, 1 Magic Tallow, 1 rose red dye and 1 piece of Nitor in a shapeless recipe, along with 10 Ordo and Ignis Vis, yielding 3 Seals.


Golemancer's Bell

The Golemancer's Bell is an item that allows one to command Golems to follow them or to interact with Seals placed on the ground, whether that be tuning them or picking them up. Holding the Bell makes Seals become visible, while right clicking on them allows them to be interacted with and shift right clicking allows them to be picked up. The Bell can be created at an Arcane Workbench with a stick in either bottom corner along with 4 nether quartz occupying the diagonal 2 by 2 section, along with 10 Aer and Ordo Vis.
