Forgotten Futures VI: Victorian Villainy
Steam Pirates! Session 02
Separated by many miles, yet brought together through remarkable advances in SCIENCE, the Whartson Hall Aethernauts embark on a voyage to the wondrous past!
At the British Museum, a priceless collection of jewellery recently excavated from the ruins of ancient Troy is carefully loaded for its trip abroad. In a darker part of the capital a small group of ingenious criminals plot to ensure this valuable cargo will never reach its destination…
Our anti-heroes attempt to re-define the term ‘thick as thieves’ as they meticulously plan every aspect of their daring undersea heist, only occasionally distracted by popular cultural references of the day, risqué single entendres, and disturbing uses of the word ‘crevice’.
Jon as the scandalous Solomon Knight, illusioneer and blackguard
Amelia as the larcenous Lady Hester Valentine, forger, procurer of dodgy documents
Nick as the dastardly Doctor James Crowther, murderous medic
Mark as the guileful Games Master
The Game: Forgotten Futures by Marcus L. Rowland. Thanks to Professor Elemental for so kindly allowing to use an excerpt from his songs in the introduction. The Whartson Hall Aethernauts play through the Google+ Hangouts facility rather than face-to-face in a room. Despite our best efforts, listeners may find some reduction in sound quality as a result.
