The Applied Development Lab is an area within Rata Sum. It is the home instance for an asura player character, and represents the research lab of the player's krewe.

- Krewe Apprentice: I guarantee the reactor explosion was due to user error.
- Krewe Researcher: Have you traveled to the epicenter to investigate the cause?
- Krewe Apprentice: Unnecessary. Ninty-nine percent of all mishaps are caused by overlooked details—ergo, user error.
- Krewe Apprentice: The ephemeral synergy of entropic disorder prevents it from reaching a ground state.
- Krewe Researcher: Actually, synergy is defined as a cooperative enterprise between two or more factors.
- Female Asura: I know you. I just finished your treatise, "Eternal Alchemy Unified Field Theory."
- Retired Researcher: Oh my. That was a long time ago. I was so young, so enthusiastic, so filled with ideas.
- Female Asura: Any advice you can give me as I pursue my alchemical career?
- Retired Researcher: Heh. Change schools. The Eternal Alchemy is unknowable.
- Golemancer (1): Our discipline is in a rut. Every golem design simply builds on previous work.
- Golemancer (2): Not this again. No one needs miniature golems. Leave it alone.
- Golemancer (1): But I'm close. I just need to overcome the power problem. Perhaps a guano battery.
- Golemancer: Every time the council appoints new Peacemakers, the golems go haywire.
- Researcher: Why is that? Inexperience?
- Golemancer: They all love to tinker and "improve" the golems.
- Golemancer: Those golems have so many layers of autonomic commands, they can barely function.
