Once Captain now Vengeful Freelancer

 

The UK, the island of many countries and many cultures. One in particular where the homes are filled with riches, that is if you were fortunate to own such a grand house, but those only belonged to the middle upper class and on up. My family and I were not that fortunate, we lived in the port town Scarborough. My mother, Ember, was a small flower shop keeper. She had deep red hair and the fair skin of an Irish Woman. My father, Slade, was a native English man and was a crew member…

Adventures on the Dionysus: 2

   After saying goodbye to my family and flying north we landed in our first village. Its a beautiful village, with a cold river off to the east of town and a breathtaking mountain view.  With the river right next to the village the area was surrounded with farms and livestock. Setting up for the performance some of the little children observed from behind trees and bushes. * giggles*  Pokin, who was helping Lucion set up the food stand saw them and ran…

The Search... Prologue

Mrs. Vertiline Napper was a simple woman .... essentially. The wife of a well respected horologist, the daughter of a local merchant, she couldn't have asked for a better life. But there was a fire in her veins. A fire that had, in the past, often caused her to get into a lot of trouble. Whether people hated her or envied her she didn't know, but she did know that people did not often stay around her for very long. 



While her life was simple, Mrs Napper was well educated in the world… Continue

Adventures on the Dionysus:1

     Giving my parents and family one last hug, sadness soon engulfs me. All I have every known was this landship which my father created. We traveled around the world entertaining villages, and cities with our circus, but now I wish to create my own. It took four years to complete it, but my very own ship is done, the Airship Dionysus. Like its name we will honor the beliefs of the god Dionysus in our circus…

Katrine Malachy McCorbie - Journal Entry #4, dated 10 August in the year 2011 of this timeline

I have finally had a chance to see for myself the kind of people who were responsible for the death of me ma and da.  I sent a drawing of the Order’ banner by bird to the village where we took shelter many years ago and the people who were there at the time confirmed that that is the same symbol they saw on the uniforms of those who were last seen heading towards our camp that morning.  The birds also tell me it matches what was seen in the forest…

Things going on lately

 Had a nice time at Arnold's last Friday with the League of Cincinnati Steampunks. Good conversation, good food, and the shanghai and corruption of a few new faces. The following day sported a trip to Dots where Esther and I discovered some very nice articles of clothing at great prices that needed no alteration to go well with our steampunk attire. Also a trip to JoAnn Fabrics and then back to Columbus for the Gallery hop. With any due luck we'll be joined for the later next month (Sept.…
