It is snowing.  I am unable to pursue my research in offshore energy due to emergency repairs required for my undersea laboratory.  I pick up and put down my needlework, a novel, and far too much pie.  This must end.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, please join me for a parlour game.  I shall begin a story, set in Maine, and invite you to continue my story by replying to my comment.  The number of players and frequency of comments doesn't matter. Just add a little color when you have a moment, and we shall create a marvelous comment-chain of entertainment.  (Please be gracious when errors in spelling or grammar are made, dears. We all misplace our modifiers, now and then.)

 

I begin:

Murielle strained to hear church bells.  According to the note she had received, the stranger would meet her at one o'clock in the morning, in the dye room of the Biddeford mill. She had hidden herself behind a vast vat of foul-smelling dye since nine that evening, with the note that promised to provide a clue she desperately needed, and a long blade tucked into her right boot.  She held her breath as footsteps signaled the beginning of her rendezvous.

Guten Tag Arzt Wolfe und Dame Ilana!  Welcome to the Empire and Steampunk in general.  I would be delighted to converse on the topic of a possible get together.  I believe step one is figuring out what and when.  I look forward to hearing from you.

I would very much like to get together to do something. I'm also very new to well everything so, Hello to everyone.

Well, having arrived here all of (*checks watch*) a day ago, I could be considered a new arrival.  While I may lack the appropriate attire, I'm certainly open for a gathering of like-minded individuals.

Well, I will be here for certain.  I think we need to do something as simple as getting together for a movie, or to play a tabletop game, or anything that people like.  Perhaps find a day that works for the majority of people within driving distance of one another, and label that the weekly Maine Steampunks day when we just do whatever.  In my opinion, waiting/relying on stuff like Portcon to create opportunities for us to gather will result in us meeting up once a year and not bothering to be active here.  This would displease me, especially since I've seen some of the Portcon kids at the mall foodcourt and I can't guarantee I wouldn't turn my cannons on the Wyndham after enduring their company for that long. XD

Problem is not enough people (myself included) check the Empire or here. We need to tell people. I'm going to try and use the Empire more but if anyone wants I could use some help spreading word. Just drop me a line to my inbox.

If anyone is still out there and hoping to gather for activities or whatever, just send a message to my inbox on here, maybe we can arrange something, anything, that'll get us steampunks together.  Fingers crossed kiddies.

Well, we tried, but it looks like Maine Steampunk is indeed well and truly dead, at least on the Empire.
Comment by Baron Wolfgang von Dressler on February 9, 2011 at 8:09pm
Well, as a wealthy Baron who loves to explore the far reaches of the Earth, I could certainly use a good crew for my personal airship.  If there be any adventurous souls out there without a highly combustible flying home to call their own!

So I'm not technically Maine, a whole 30 minutes away from the border. But I love the place and would love to see some more activity. I'm still here representing northern MA.
