Technical and Historical Notes

The Ghamborgini was a recreational labor manufactured Plevidensa. Styled after a luxury car, the Ghamborgini’s appearance resembled that of a car equipped with four labor legs and roller wheels. Although usually operated in this configuration, the Ghamborgini could transform to a bipedal mode and function like a normal humanoid labor. Civilians used a Ghamborgini in Demon Haunt Village as part of a protest against a plan to knock down an ancient tree to construct a highway.
