Discontent - An Interrupted Dinner
Posted by Beryl Strifeclaw on September 14, 2014 at 12:43pm

The wreckage below the glass appeared misty, lending it a mysterious and huanting appearance from the restraunt above. What treasures or plagues had those wrecks once hidden?  Beryl didn't know and intended to keep it that way since it was a welcome distraction while visiting the Brunel, now that Victor's prized fish had been moved at least.

Beryl had come to enjoy some fish alone for the day, a very rare thing for him now, which...

The Butcher's Boy
Posted by Quentin Fumes on September 12, 2014 at 8:48am ...1 replies

They say I'm the butcher's boy.  Well, I did a few jobs for Spiggins.  Delivering offal, stirring blood, cutting up a giant air kraken.  He wouldn't come out for that.  Said his back was bad.  Spiggins, that rich bastard.  Sawdust in his sausages.
 
Well, it got me a place here in the city.  I need a place.  When you've got connections to make, you need somewhere to be, don't you? ...

Common Causes of Ulcers
Posted by Eloise Winchester on September 2, 2014 at 9:28pm

Waking in the belly of the monster, Eloise and Hally took stock, and a few potshots at each other.

“By all accounts, this is your fault,” mumbled Hally.

Eloise stared at her through the haze of the stench surrounding them, before finally hissing: “Thanks for refreshing my memory. For some reason I didn't remember it being me who wanted a pet kraken. It must have been all the pointless trauma shaking all the logic loose.”

The Fight Report
Posted by Tepic Harlequin on August 30, 2014 at 1:28pm

It had been a much better night with more people fighting, which was good, Tepic thought as he doused the lamps around the ring. It might be better to change the first rule though, as if no one was allowed to talk about the fight club, how could new people learn about it?

There had been a flurry of betting, especially when the two Moreau gentlemen had stood toe to toe. Everyone had expected the heavier lion chap to be victorious, but...

In the Belly of the Beast
Posted by Hally Xiang on August 29, 2014 at 3:58pm

Hally didn't remember being eaten by the air kraken very well, but she knew who was to blame:  Her neighbor who had gotten them both drunk!  If she'd have been sober she was sure she could have performed the proper dive maneuver.

Thankfully this air kraken was massive and had attacked the ship and not them personally.  The teeth had been bigger than the both of them and the two of them had fallen into the kraken's...

Die Verwandlung des Valeskas
Posted by Pilipo Underwood on August 29, 2014 at 11:44am

So I was packing up for my trip to Berlin to take over the Continental Headquarters from Professor Valeska when he banged his way into the front of the laboratory. Must have taken an earlier train. The time in gloomy Berlin had not improved his demeanor, he was as cross and grumpy as usual, but finding the stabilized recipe in the bottles near the condenser improved his mood and the chill began to fade from the room. I swear that man can...
