During the Franco-Prussian War of 1862-1870, marauding armies overran many small towns and villages. In order to protect themselves, one town came upon a novel solution. Instead of trying to defend itself (a losing proposition to be certain), it would use the age-old solution: run away from danger. Using the latest technology and supported by several brilliant Savants, they put legs on their town, making it mobile. Soon, other towns followed the first one’s lead and now there are many walking towns.
Walking towns are slow and ponderous and make a tremendous amount of noise, but they are simply amazing to witness. In the years since the wars, many of them have settled down in fertile areas, never to move again unless danger looms. Others have become something like gypsy towns, packing up and moving on every few months. Legend says that there are walking ghost-towns as well; mechanized villages which roam during fog-shrouded nights, or silhouetted by the flickering lighting during terrible thunderstorms. Much like the legendary Flying Dutchman of the high seas, these haunted places are seen as an evil omen, bringing bad luck wherever they are seen.
