Here's a question: Can the automaton be 'gifted' to an ancient race, like the Egyptians, by, say, aliens? Hence the technology could be more advanced than water and levers but 'look' sort of Egyptian? Or is that cheating? Only my second IDW so I want to be clear I'm staying in the rules. Thanks.

When you say ancient, do you mean looks, is from an ancient time (100 years plus)?

Vorp: As long as its clear it isn't something futuristic with a retro look or something that'd be okay. It's been done a couple of times already though so try to find an original way in I suggest.
Pixie Trick: Yep at a first glance it must be clear we're not dealing with a shiny new one or some futuristic moon exploring android.

This is the first really quick, really bad sketch of my idea - Oracle of Delphi a la carnival fortune teller machine.
I know there is lots wrong. I go all squiggly at first.
Back to the battle of the pencil...

Not sure if this'll fit the bill for ancient automation or not, but here goes...
Supposed to be an unearthed ancient personal computer from days long past... It floats, not a blowup.
