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.

Slobodkina


I've reported the obviously immoral if not illegal job we've taken transporting iguana tails to the Bermuda Triangle that @Hugo accepted on the ship's behalf, and I can't get anybody to care! I'm in direct communication with Joy, the HR paralegal representative they've assigned to me on a very wide range of topics and have been sending her close to 15 emails a day noting potential infractions of the Leading through Caring guidelines that I've submitted, as well as a number of suggestions not men...(READ MORE)

After conferring with several colleagues via anonymous chat rooms, we agree to examine your purported "Let us Secure this Bread" airship card, from what it appears to be the stone age, universe 4A, @Rose Lalonde. You can find us at the upcoming Rotting Worm Card and Comics Faire in Old Habitsform, Sector B Subcluster, booth #1007664a. Please do not touch the merchandise. Anxiously awaiting your reply, Fritz Camembert The Card Shark...(READ MORE)

Dinner at the Rotting Worm Book Faire in Old Habitsform is exquisite. Those bookseller types have a taste for fine food and wine. You just have to know the right ones. In my case, I only knew one. Good thing he didn't want to drink alone. "I expected you'd be using the money you realized from the sale on dinner with Captain Nomenclature?" He used the weird fake French pronunciation again. I tried to use it when I introduced myself but fumbled it badly. "Oh, I make it a po...(READ MORE)

Jimmy Three-hands


Brrrrrrrr. Being dead sure is cold. I was freezing cold and dead out by the woodpile. One of my three eyes wanted to wake up, and the other of my three eyes wanted to go back to being dead, and the third of my three eyes just wanted the others to stop bickering. BIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPT! Bakemono Toad's ribbit ripped through me like a torn skirt. It tore right through me like lightning. As Ol' Jimmy Three Hand's brain was flapping in the wind, I had a hazy memory of filling Bakemono...(READ MORE)

this is my memory stick. it’s clear now, see-through like everything else. or reflective of everything else. same images of everything reflecting off everything else, with nothing to reflect but the reflections. there’s still something being reflected—contours, outlines, oily shapes along the crinkle of infinite telescopy... which is why the memory stick seemed like the perfect weapon. see-through as it is, its size and shape is clear in my hand, and i know what ammunition it holds. wil...(READ MORE)

Grace Gearhorn


weeeeeeeeeeek! weeeeeeeeeeeek! "Get that haunted squirrel off the bridge!" Navigating the plumbless depths of this island-sized behemoth is hard enough without Junior Navigator Claira's little stow-away screeching uncontrollably. weeeeeeeeeeeek! weeeeeeeeeeek! weeeeeeeeeeek! "Slowly ahead, Ensign Charmer." "Aye aye, mam." "I want us pointed straight out this whale's mouth and ready for full thrusters as soon as we see those pearly whites open...(READ MORE)

Cucurbita Pepo


We are now running seven of the scarecrow machines. Each one needs a small crew to operate, and we are able to work them about the room, bumping into giant furniture, bumping into each other, bumping into walls. Now that we have located what appears to be a door, we have been ramming ourselves into it, two at a time. What’s this? Number 5 reports a door knob....(READ MORE)

Rose Nomenclature


"The Traits, Features, Characteristics, Peculiarities, Mannerisms, Qualities, and Attributes of the Hymergian Man-Fungus," with fold-out illustrations intact. You can't even look at it without the right glasses or you go crazy. And I got a pair of those too. Met Bill, some junkman, who sold them to me at the Rotting Worm Book Faire in Old Habitsform. He wasn't even a licensed Dangerous Antiquities Dealer. However, unless the glasses are their own elaborate hoax, it appears to be aut...(READ MORE)

I can understand the decision to go with the Giant Spiders, but, had Enormous Hives, LLC been consulted we would have pointed out that while they do lack the crushing weight of the Giant Toads and Giant Lizards, they are much harder to remove from the scene once their work is done. Not to mention the almost chthonic malevolence that they possess. Had they opted for the slow moving and frankly somewhat cute Giant Fuzzy Tarantulas this would have been less of an issue, but I think we can all admit...(READ MORE)

Auto Slops


A blimp nursery can seem pretty small, once you reach a certain age. Uncle Elvin was a great dad, and the Spatuloso taught us how to respect ourselves as blimps. But breaking through the outer leaves of the nursery and into the wild wide skies is something we all knew would have to happen sometime. Soap Lotus was a rebel, a loner, and had to go his own way earlier than the rest of us. He was the oldest, and always had something to prove. He taught the rest of us a lot. We just wish we knew wh...(READ MORE)

Microwave Explosion 1/26/2019 9:43pm

Curious Curios Inc.


I've got a Chinese Lightning Box on this side, and I'm tuning it in so I can see through the Chinese Lighting Box on the other side. It's just this little chromium switch here.... ZZzzzzzzzwwwwwwwttkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. Ah! There we go. Oh my. The Captain, Annie Griffin I believe, has the box open on the bridge of the Microwave Explosion. She has a packet of crisps in her lap and appears to be interacting with her phone. Perhaps if I can adjust the intermodulation just right I can... "Co...(READ MORE)

We keep your gold locked up in the hold, where it's cold, so that gold will stay froze. It's secured with ropes and tethers and is perfectly safe should the ship run into a bit of bad weather. But what if you're along for the ride? Who's going to keep you safe and secure and slightly inebriated? Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has turned on the Fasten Seat Belt sign. If you haven’t already done so, please stow your carry-on gold underneath the seat in front of you or in an overhead bin. P...(READ MORE)

Before giving up the remote connection and joining the crew of giant guinea pigs on The Flying Comrade, I was concerned about their ability to pilot the ship on their own. But did you know that guinea pigs have better color perception than cats and dogs? And that they can see 33 images per second (as opposed to only 22 images per second like humans) and that they have a 340 degree range of vision? That's right--they would be awesome at video games. As I swab the deck of the bridge, I watc...(READ MORE)

Count Almaviva


Chi avrebbe conosciuto la storia degli uomini di pan di zenzero era così triste! Dentro la nostra prigione di pan di zenzero, l'equipaggio e io cominciammo a piangere. Abbiamo pianto e pianto, ci siamo presi l'un l'altro e abbiamo pianto fino a quando siamo rimasti senza lacrime. Ed è stato in questo momento che abbiamo iniziato a piangere lacrime di latte! Latte bianco, latte intero, latte con crema pesante versato dai nostri occhi e sul pavimento della nostra cella di pan di zenzero. Pres...(READ MORE)

Starry Skye


Wow there sure are a lot of new addresses here! The homes and buildings sit perched on lumps of land floating in every direction. Occasionally connected by a rainbow bridge or a waterfall, most of the divots stand alone, sprouting grasses and mushrooms and rocky outcroppings. There's usually a clear "top," where things grow, and an "under" of dark roots and dripping stone. Hettie and I swoop between them, avoiding the clouds and rain and sky devils that pass between. Bu...(READ MORE)
