The steam winch is rapidly becoming a standard piece of traveling equipment for military units, merchant caravans and even small parties of adventurers. Its compact casing holds a small but powerful phlogiston engine that turns a drum wrapped with 300 feet of wirecore rope. Once bolted or spiked to a surface, the winch can be run in either direction to raise or lower up to 600 pounds.

Upgraded steam winches are also available, featuring a drum of ironrope. This sturdier rope allows a load of 1,200 pounds.[1]
