SHIPS LOGS


Zephyr Air Transport's fleet of continuous merchant dirigibles is continually scouring the many earths, connecting outposts and communities far and wide. Jobs are picked up "on the fly" by ships in your area, and may pick up whatever additional work they're able to drum up on their own. Each ship in our fleet is owner-operated, working under the auspices and supplementary logistical infrastructdure of Zephyr Air Transport Inc.

If you're on a crew, feel free to post to your ship's logs at any time! Zephyr Air Transport believes strongly in transparency.

Mae Harrington


Captain Harrington here of the multi-purpose cargo vessel Madness Seeks out a Lover, putting out a distress call to any ships in the area. REPEAT, THIS IS THE MPV MADNESS SEEKS OUT A LOVER, PUTTING OUT A DISTRESS CALL TO ANY SHIPS IN THE AREA. We are currently adrift, following an engagement with a swarm of sentient squalls. Both engines lost. Altitude Attitude is healthy, generators are working, and we can steer a bit, but we are currently on the glide REPEAT ON THE GLIDE with no engine powe...(READ MORE)

Stratospheric Aerodrome Renoire 11/25/2021 10:40pm

Zephyr Ambulance LTD


"But how could an entire stratospheric aerodrome just disappear?" "I assure you we have been quite thorough in our search, Doctor. Even at full power, it couldn't have outdistanced the perimeter of our search. And there's no sign of wreckage on the continent below within a similar radius." "What if the wreckage had been camouflaged? Or crashed and dismantled before your arrival?" "The techs have been over the plates multiple times. The land below is la...(READ MORE)

Jimmy Three-hands


"Maybe the cat is both alive and dead," said Little Good Terms Field Mouse. "He's always saying stupid things like that," said Big Hard-worker Mother Goddess Field Mouse. "Yes you must use your Power of Discernment with intention," said I. "Here. Let me clean your spectacles." Big Hard-worker Mother Goddess Field Mouse looked at me sternly through her spectacles again. "Let me clean your spectacles." Big Hard-worker Mother Goddess...(READ MORE)

The Mephitis 11/21/2021 11:29pm

Doctor Argosa


The light opened my mind like a hall of mirrors, and I could see myself in all reflections. "Doctor are you getting this? this? this? this?" the Captain asked. Our reality frame was stuttering, due to the buffering. My own hall of mirrors stretched before me, most recent moments first, followed by earlier moments, then the earlier moments to those moments, on and on and on, all neatly filed like folders in a filing cabinet. From one perspective it seemed like it must go on for...(READ MORE)

The Eolas Anatolijus 11/19/2021 12:33pm

Dr. Jonas Opal


The cargo was about my height, weighed as much as me, had the same glasses as myself, and the same tartan jacket I wore. To put it simply, I was delivering an exact replica of myself. Well, replica is the wrong word. Clone doesn’t work, either. This man was me, but not. My cargo, as he technically is, was myself from a world like our own, but a hop and a skip to the left. To put it simply, he was me from another multiverse entirely. I was contacted by Dr. J, which is what we call him to...(READ MORE)

Eyes Without A Face 11/18/2021 10:02pm

Aeon Lore


I have no regrets as to the decision I made. She was, after all, completely insane, and a clockwork doll at that. What would it have taken to cure her of her madness? A therapist? A pharmacist? A tinker, a jeweler, an engineer? I had no delusions that I alone could cure her, or that some part of her love for me had once been real. But what if she was telling the truth? What if she really was from the future, clockwork or not, and somehow the Mare Tenebrarum lead some kind of genocidal war aga...(READ MORE)

Rose Nomenclature


"Mweeeeek! Mweeeeek Mweeeeek!" "Well, it's bigger than what I'd generally call a haunted artifact, but, well... what is it, anyway?" Floating above a thicket of forest ahead of us was the classic embodiment of death -- the Grim Reaper. It had the cloak, a hint of a skeleton poking out here and there and holding a giant scythe. The whole thing must have been 50 meters tall, holding its massive scythe and slowly swinging it two-handed, over and over. And over and over...(READ MORE)

The Metataxi 11/14/2021 9:57pm

Reema White Antelope


"Security! Report!" "Ryung Brightness here, captain. The crew's got some bruises and a mess to clean up, but no serious injuries. What's going on?" "We're in the grasp of what appears to be a giant white moth. It's a little bigger than we are. It's got the Metataxi in its clutches and it's taking us deeper in." The whole ship felt like it dropped 50 feet, then bobbed to port, then struggled up a ways, and fell again. "Nausea might be our most immed...(READ MORE)

Nellie Smacks


You've gotta do somethin' about those wild kids, @Capt. Frank Clarence! Them in their souped-up 'rovers, kickin' up the chocolate dust like there's no tomorrow! They got no respect for honest settlers tryin' a make it here on the crack flats, them knockin' over fences and chewin' up the 'rec fields with their racin' and slidin' and the howlin'. And what's with that howlin, @Capt. Frank Clarence? Whenever those kids really get goin' and they're spinnin' their wheels makin' chocolate dust devil...(READ MORE)

I swear our captain is mad... he keeps going on about how this will be the "greatest thing we've ever done" I don't know what, if anything, he's been drinking or eating but he's starting to scare me...(READ MORE)

Billy Sabab


Bruno's breath smelled like beans and bacon. "Billy my boy!" He grabbed my hand and gave me a big slap on the back. And farted. "Been keepin' busy? No! Wait!" He gave a sidelong glance at Shipman Eva. "Got anywheres we can speak... privately?" I walked Bruno to the ready room while he crop-dusted the deck with more farts. "So, had a little fun at Grimaldi, did we Billy boy?" He gave me a sly look. "Well, uh, word travels fast, I guess. Why...(READ MORE)

Carolinaeuphrosyne


I devoted the next five years of my life mastering this new language. It was proof that blimps had not only been once been sentient, living creatures, but that they had incredibly complex social behaviors. And I was only about to begin to learn just how complex. The original collection of material I'd salvaged from the gigaplex site turned out to be hugely important, as it represented the largest known sample of texts acquired from a single source. Through translation, I learned they were th...(READ MORE)

Harry Otter


"You're one of those fishy ones, ain't cha?" It was the biggest bulldog-headed man I'd ever seen, standing behind the counter in his decrepit wooden shop. "Fishy, uh, no sir. I mean, I like fish, and shellfish, but I haven't really eaten any seafood for quite some time. And how do you know my language?" "ENOUGH!" Big Bulldog replied, smashing his big paw on the counter. "I mean you're one of those changeroos, a shifter, like me!" Big Bulldog sc...(READ MORE)

Roberto Shelton


I thanked Clive for the lift and exited his classic 1986 Winneblimpo via the rope ladder. The ground was dusty, and nothing but desert as far as the eye could see. The coffee shack was high atop its tower, and already had quite a line. Likely because it was the only coffee shack for miles, but it was also called "Goggles" with the logo drawn in such a way that it implied the baristas would be wearing steampunk corsets and bustiers. But I wasn't here for the coffee. "Faulkton...(READ MORE)
