Machine of Lum (glass) Object BG2

Machine of Lum the Mad with Carston inside the glass chamber.

The Machine of Lum the Mad is found in Watcher's Keep at the fourth floor. Carston, a mage who explored the place with his apprentices about ten years ago, is imprisoned in the machine. The machine grants him eternal life, but he can't get out of the machine and the machine is immobile. The glass can only be broken by the Crystal Mallet, which is hidden somewhere on the floor. The machine has nine different levers and buttons, which means there are 729 different combinations in total.

"Handwritten Notes" bearing valid combinations for the machine are hidden throughout the first four levels of Watcher's Keep.
