This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The scenario 'Silver Pictures Move So Slow' in the Mythras/Luther Arkwright supplement, 'Parallel Lines' is based exclusively onboard a zeppelin...

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4464[/ATTACH]

The characters are investigating Disruptor activity that may involve the British and Ukrainian royal dynasties in an alt-history setting. It involves decadent film stars, drug addicted diplomats, psychic phenomena, an ambitious film director, and a dash of Bolshevism.

I've heard that claim many time over the decades. But it's never really panned out.

Hell, this was tossed around way back in the 70s and 80s on an episode of Nova.

And wow! They really did build the Magnus? Or at least a functional prototype.

Speaking of airships. As mentioned in the "Cthulhu Meets Real Life" thread... Some of the things I ended up with after my aunt's death was a packet of newspapers and clippings.
One of which being the front page article on the Hindenburg. Also in there was one on the Titanic and another about Dillinger being shot. Some going so far back they were still referring to China as Cathay.

It turns into Led. Suddenly thunderheads billow about you keeping it aloft, and you rock the fuck out as you invade other nations and pillage them.

Looks nice! Um...what's that creature on the lower left?

Probably a yeti at a guess.

Ever see the Archer episode where they are on an airship! haha  Good for some ideas.

Edit: The white thing in picture above looks more like a Morlock to me.

True.  Could be a Dunsany type gnole too.  These older creatures remind me of the bogymen in March of the Wooden Soldiers (Laurel and Hardy, Hal Roach film).  ha
