Introducing: Gaslamp Adventures

Sometimes the blog just sits there and doesn't get updated. Then there were ideas that were thought out some time ago, that never made it (Weird West Adventures). But then, there's ideas that just stick in your head and needs to be put down and shared with everyone.


The latest idea, and one that might be appreciated by many here, is similar to the Weird Wild West Adventures. A pulp novel type story, using places like Steelhead City, Caledon, and other places as settings (with other settings that may or may not exist, in and outside the Grid). And since I'm on that Gaslamp Fantasy kick, I've decided to call it "Gaslamp Adventures". The characters, except one, are all "fictional" characters, as in, they don't exist in Steelhead, Caledon, New Babbage, or other places. Reason for this, figured it was easier than someone wondering, "Hey, how come such and such was used and not me?" So, the characters will be based on several different residents, so you may see a little bit of yourself in them (a few residents have given me permission to use them as supporting characters, however). The one character that wasn't made up.......well, you might say I own the copyright to that character.


Here's the list of characters featured in Gaslamp Adventures:


Duchess Amanda Rose Smith- World traveller, makes her home in Yorkshire, England. Practices the art of Magick. Lovingly referred to as "The Magical Duchess"


Captain Jonathon Williamson- Former military captain. Wanting to settle down, but has the urge for adventure.


Malcolm O'Malley- An Irish cat Furry. Loves gambling, drinking, and female furries. Dislikes losing, hangovers, and rejection from female furries.


Grover Mill- Skilled airship pilot. Has also flown Aetherships to Mars. Also a skilled hand to hand combatant.


Vanessa Greene- The other lady of the group. Known to be prim and proper one minute, and starting bar brawls the next.


Zeigfried- Lady Amanda's butler. Whether Zeigfried is his first name or last, is unknown.


Sheriff Ortega- Sheriff of Steelhead City, Oregon. Skilled marksman and tracker. Werewolf.


Still hammering out details on the first adventure. Will start in England, go to New York, then on to more familiar grounds of Steelhead City and Caledon. Hope you enjoy it.
