QUOTE="Suede"] The Clockwork Cipher is an artifact. You can't buy or have it. The GM can't just add loot to the chronicle.
I'm going to assume he realizes that and just thematically had Grave treader give the group custom appearance wayfinders, that have little clockwork bits on them. IE, if you don't have a wayfinder already you can drop the 500 gold to have one, and just say it's clockworky. Purely aesthetic, no mechanical benefit.
So if that's the case. Why write it on there to begin with? I makes me wonder if any other groups that played this at Gencon had this written on it. Would this then make the chronicle invalid?
