WANTED: Adventurous souls willing to embark on the expedition of a lifetime.
Professor D. L. Quimble proudly announces the first test of her Crown-funded Time Displacement Machine. Under the strict supervision of Her Majesty’s Royal Artificers, five explorers will be sent a short distance into the past to collect information of interest to all society. Applicants must be of sound mind and body (approved prosthetics are acceptable), possess excellent character, and be familiar with one of the following areas:
-Outdoors navigation and survival-Scientific specimen collection-Botany-Paleontology-Wild game hunting-Engineering
Interested parties may inquire by post care of the Royal Artificers.
Narrator notes:Have fun with this. I intend this to be a fun action-filled romp, high on intrigue with the potential for some romance. Violence is to be theatrically grandiose rather than gritty, but it will probably happen.
This game is set in Victorian England, like much of the genre. It’s open to characters of any sex or creed, though, because as in much steampunk you’re judged more on your clothing and deportment than on your skin color and naughty bits.
Making your own cards is fully acceptable.
No one without an avatar is accepted as I’ve found that makes gameplay difficult for the other players. What kind you use (hand-drawn, cartoons, photographs, etc) is up to you.
I’d like your bio to be in the form of your letter sent in application for the expedition. You don’t have to detail each expedition or what have you; this can be your cover letter of sorts. If you’re lying about anything, or exaggerating it, tell me in the notes when you submit your character.
