Introducing the Spirit of Tontogany- the most advanced airship yet seen!

The Spirit of Tontogany is based in the Great Black Swamp of NW Ohio. It is the airship of the Great Black Swamp Society of Steam and Lace.

Our former airship, the Perry's Peeve was damaged beyond repair during an action to exterminate an expansionist hive.

The SoT incorporates many features we felt were lacking in the Peeve.

The evil Herr Doktor Professor Roterwurm is helping with the design. He really owes us after saving him from the expansionists. Good thing we have some Techno-Gris-Gris to help keep him in line. ( As our Acadian friends from down South say, do NOT underestimate the swamp folk! )

Watch this space for additional technical and crew updates.

Wonderful News! We now have our official airship designation! ( S.S. = Steam Ship, R.M.S. = Royal Mail Ship, RV = Research Vessel, etc )

Since the Tontogany is the first of her class, she has the designation of:
Winching Transport Frame number One.

Our wireless call sign is: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - 1

The SoT's propulsion system is unique and revolutionary. The heat is supplied by combining M-Stoff (methanol or ethanol, usually) with T-Stoff (hydrogen peroxide and oxyquinoline). The resulting heat…Continue

The organization of the crew approximates that of a pirate vessel,though SoT is by no means a pirate airship. It could perhaps be called an Anarchosyndicalist crew structure, if we understand…Continue

Greetings and welcome aboard!
As Navigator I will be sure to circumvent the air sharks, It's just as sweltering in the Black Swamp as your locale.
Yours in good health and happy days.

Many thanks from your southern cousin for your hospitable extension to come on board and look around.Dreadfully hot here in Cincinnati, hope it is a bit cooler to the north.

Of course we will need onboard entertainment! Especially the transport trips to and from Playland. I anticipate that the trips out will merit high-energy upbeat music. On the trips back, many of the passengers would appreciate more restrained fare, after 24 hours of indulgence.

Merci beaucoup for your gracious invitation. If vous and the crew require onboard entertainment, I know of a Lady "Mad Sonictist" who would fit the bill quite nicely.
