Whats the humdrum about Chaps? Adventures into Victorian Science Fiction and Steampunk with ramblings about Aeronefs, Dirigibles, Land Ironclads, Anarchists, Dinosaur Hunting, Terranefs, Aquanefs, Mad Scientists, and all manner of electric contraptions and steam conveyances. It may not make sense, but there will be claret and a nice cheese board at the end. Tally-Ho and "Vôtre dans une sauce au vin blanc!"
In preparation for next week's relocation to more southern provinces of the Colonies, my VSF Factorium has now officially ceased production. Today saw packing begin in earnest, including the boxing of factorium automatons and materiel. We hope to re-commence production of vital war supplies as soon as possible. Long live the Queen!
Apparently there is a rumour on TMP that Wessex Games are "intending to go out of business", not true, we've just been over taken by real life pressures that occasionally impact us.
As proof that we are still around we are going to release a nice little Christmas present for Aeronef gamers in the form of Aeronef Over Carpthia (Wrath of the Syren) - and the really good news is that it'll be free!
Written by Paul O'Grady, this is a three scenario mini-campaign centred around the actions of Hungarian noble Baron Lantoz in 1890's Eastern Europe against the might of the Ottoman Empire.
Typesetting is underway and we should have Aeronef Over Carpathia available as a free PDF download at Wargame Vault in time for some festive 'neffiness.
Sounds awesome (and well written to boot!). OK, I can now confess this secret project which I have been working on over the last few months. Kudos and much thanks to Ogrefencer for his significant written input, and to Zophiel for his excellent artwork.
