Akyooterat, God of Squirrels Part 1 1/2: Real Housewives of Ravila
Posted by Arconus Arkright on December 16, 2016 at 6:40am ...1 replies

As toy boys go, Mr. Edison "Sonny" Tsai ranked rather high in Dr. Jing Qian's estimation. He was far too Westernized to ever please her very traditional family back home (who strained to find ways to tolerate the doctor's progressive life choices) but he was more than suitable in all other respects: a man of some means, a decent conversationalist, rakishly handsome and conveniently stupid. However, in spite of his normally guileless nature,...

Loki's negotiation
Posted by Loki Gearhead on December 7, 2016 at 7:20pm

“Oh dear,” Itsy chortled as she lowered herself from the wall to greet her new guests.  She bore herself confidently as she looked at her visitors.  “Two of you have wandered directly into the spiders nest?  Perhaps you were eager to join these others?”  Her rear leg jostled the bundle very tenderly.  She didn’t want to disturb the little ones nesting within the formerly brash boy trapped inside.

As brilliant-but-psychotically-murderous villains go, Mr. Vehement Marrow ranked rather low in Audrey's estimation. While his monomaniacal obsession with tapping the power of the ley lines that converged in New Babbage was, to a degree, rather endearing, Miss Kilcannon could plainly see that his penchant for over-complicated schemes--involving so many precariously assembled parts they were all but predestined to collapse in failure -- meant...

An Itsy Bitsy Problem - Wright into the nest
Posted by Beryl Strifeclaw on December 3, 2016 at 1:47pm

John Wright followed their nervous guide through the dense island vegetation, though the ex-Pinkerton considered the fellow superfluous.  The nest had been visible from afar and Wright had a honed sense of direction.   But even Loki, obliviously pounding through the underbrush announcing their presence as a one manned marching band, could have found their destination.  The thick canopy above could not hide airships...

I can not believe how time flies. Less then two months ago we were up to our necks in Whitechapel filth and what was looking to be a long and Bloody fall. Politics, bedfellows and countrymen  can conspire for good or for evil. Either way the end result was relocation for my associate and companion Miss Jacy Katz and myself from our Townhouse on Sommerset Street in Whitechapel to our lovely new home in Rutherford. Much...

Preparing for winter: the new Go-Devil
Posted by Kimika Ying on November 26, 2016 at 2:07pm ...4 replies

I've rebuilt the Go-Devil and installed a new 40 hp engine from the Elbridge Engine Company. Yesterday I took it for a test run on the Fells and made a short list of changes which need to be made, and it will go up for sale as soon as I put the finishing touches on it. Currently it can be seen on the ground floor of the Ying Industries workshop near the Palisade...
