W E L C O M E !

Salutations on this most glorious day!

This event invites you to interact in a steampunk world via comments.

Please DO feel free to create a male persona and sign-off with said name with your comments.
i.e. Dr James Ambrose Verne

To enhance the play also include and share feelings, thoughts and ideas prompted by the various posts. You can be fanciful and full of malarkey ;-D
i.e. Dr Verne wipes his brow with his monogrammed handkerchief as he considers which bouquet of flowers to select for his sweetheart.

Begin NOW and tell me your steampunk persona name with brief background and/or appearance description in comments.
i.e. Dr Verne enjoys walks in the park with his antique carnival glass knob cane.

Meanwhile, in the following posts you will meet a Mr Edward P. Quinn. A young handsome lad of two and twenty who is home in London from University during the summer months. He will guide you through the next 3 days in his world of steampunky ideas and inventions.
