From Open Perpetuum

While the Niani Industrial Trust as a group is enigmatic, even fewer understand the Argano. Lacking the Termis’s efficiency or the Riveler’s ravenous hunger, the Argano nonetheless contributes well with its small stature. It will never be the most rapid of the mineral harvesters, but Agents who drive the Argano are known for determination and hard work for a reason.
