We may have overlooked corpates in a canonical story

The Constructs of Antiquity mentions a small colony of machine beings, named Kelkis, on Scadrial, which @Lesser spren remarked upon. And attributes them to the Lord Ruler's hemalurgy.

That is too close to a corpate not to suspect a connection, especially as Nazriloffi s interested in them, as depicted in the Ghastly Gondola. What do you think?

Ooooh, good catch. Could very well be. (Side note, looks like it's "kalkis", not "kelkis".)

While I'm hesitant to take an obviously sensationalized story too seriously, I also really really want Ferrous bonds to be canon so we can get a Realmatic explanation for how they work, so I'm fine with giving Nicelle the benefit of the doubt here if that's what it takes. :D

I checked the broadsheet in question and... I think that part of the story is made up. Nazh doesn't even seem like he was aware of the so-called "constructs of antiquity" that the map could supposedly lead him too, he just wanted the map. It's far from the furthest heights he's been to just to acquire a mere map (look at the Stormlight Archives or the original Mistborn trilogy). He seemed like he was trying to shake Nicki off by scaring her.
