An Overly Complex Machine Machine life form. In fact so complex their somewhat unreliable and subject to breaking down.
They would truly be an ingenious machine if it worked. They have been seen in so many varieties of shapes and sizes and any number of wheels. At times you may be tempted to ride a Shift-Shaper when on a long quest but Rider be weary They may chose to change shape at any time and will most likely break down and can cause you injury.
No one knows exactly where the shift-Shapers come from. A hand full of reports say that they seem to poorly mass produce themselves. but their manufacturing plants are ether very far or very well hid.Most often Found on the trail they are rather noisy a Rickety clunking can be heard followed by Explosive backfires and bellows of black smoke. you won't be sneaking up on anyone on one of these.
I have found they can leave behind useful items and a few coins.. known to drop leather rope.
