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.

Stage two, the Lightning Run.  Only the highest priority data gets the big highway. That’s part of what the Giant Guinea Pigs got from the boards and syndicates of the earth.  And let me tell you, it is a big highway.  We’re all ensconced in diamond lightning form, identical to all the packages shooting down the highway. It’s so big — to facilitate the quantum buffering — that all the packages are at great apparent distance. By “apparent” I mean you can see too well. Th...(READ MORE)

Magnus Arquebus


After the ruckus in the hold, the merchant and his small entourage requested to disembark at the nearest town. Then, the Merlesee began to dance. He stood on the bridge and began to rock back and forth, taking tiny steps and shifting his orientation in a way that we eventually interpreted as a compass, his conical shape swaying like a bell, dipping gently here and there to direct our course. Helmsmen took shifts watching him and piloting the ship in a way that followed his movements. And...(READ MORE)

Count Almaviva


Per tutto questo tempo, il mio padrone, Baker of Mysteries, aveva resistito! Lui e la sua compiaciuta "regole di vita e di cottura!" Mi seduce con la perfezione della sua arte, la sua padronanza dei prodotti da forno, la magia della sua spavalderia da cucina. La sua figura elegante in grembiule e mantelli da forno sono così importanti. E quando mi ha detto che cercare il Cookie che non lascia briciole era un obiettivo irraggiungibile, ero sul punto di credergli. Mi aveva coinvol...(READ MORE)

Billy Nails


Nobody likes a shivery old ninny poop, kid. Least of all ol’@Billy Nails. But I just couldn’t let my trepidations keep to themselves with this tinkerin in time business! Of course the captain did tell us what he was doing, and gave us all a chance to jump ship before we went through the gate. But you know how these things are, a buncha grown airship crew members, all gung ho and oorah oorah, ready for adventure, and whatever might come their way. But I just gotta confide in somebody, kid, an...(READ MORE)

Thot Slayer 3/31/2020 11:59pm

Slobodkina


Well I was able to moor the Thot Slayer in a section of this massive futuristic city that seems to be near where my unfortunate crew lost their minds. But oh the parking fees! I had none of the so called "clams" they were asking for, so instead have had to pay our way by accepting a job with the local garbage brigade. I may be able to earn a little more this way for the upgrades the Thot Slayer could so clearly use, and it gives the crew something to do with their time other than drool...(READ MORE)

Jimmy Three-hands


Oh it was nice to have Rocky Blaze, star reporter for the Bakemono Register, and his 57 colleagues off the ship. As soon as the last one was out the door I pulled the Araceli up up and away over the Land of Nuts. I watched Rocky Blaze and all the other newspaper raccoons scamper across the rolling plains of nuts and nut trees, watched them gather all the nuts they could in their creepy little hands and pockets and rush down to the freshwater streams to wash their nuts. It can be as mesmer...(READ MORE)

i've got bullets that i hide other bullets in. bullets that open up like a nest of dolls, like a tackle box, like corpse's chest at the mortuary. you can lose yourself in those spaces. they open you up. i've got bullets you can hide other bullets in. if you shoot them off it doesn't necessarily mean both bullets hit. one may be there, one may not. they are bullets inside of bullets. i've got bullets inside of bullets, and a change of clothes inside of bullets, and some rainy day money insi...(READ MORE)

Aeon Lore


I began observing Aya quite by accident. It was at a quadrille being held in the Grand Hall. She was dressed in the traditional formal gown, with nothing to suggest the special rank or stature of royalty or the titled merchant class. Yet she commanded the room with her demeanor and her poise. It was as if she was a princess in their midst. The dancers moved through the figures of the dance, enraptured by Aya and the beauty of the moment. Completely unaware they were being watched through the...(READ MORE)

Gladys Pompon


What is that crashing? Is this what I heard about on the tee-vee? That swooshing and wooshing and crunching of cars? Look! I see it outside my window, in the streetlight in the dark. The mighty ankle, the proud footfall. But the cars and sidewalks are unbroken. Like the giant isn't even there! Is it a monster, or is it not? It's certainly large, and makes noises like a crashing train. Yet it's nothing but a great big ghost of a foot. Of a leg. Where is the rest of it? Up in the sky? It su...(READ MORE)

Rose Nomenclature


I met an automatic mannequin today. I'd never seen one in person before. If I hadn't had the glasses on I might have not even noticed, but the readouts in the lenses made it clear he was different. I had assumed he worked at the bookstore I first saw him at, but then I started to seem him around town, browsing at other shops, making small purchases, never speaking. I've been spending a lot of time people watching from the cafes and coffee shops. In between bookstore jaunts. Old Habitsform has...(READ MORE)

Baron Von Dingo


Harry, Jack, and @Strange Katz On a routine expedition, Met the greatest timequake ever known! High on the winds of time, It struck their mighty airship And plunged them down a thousand years below! And who am I? Well, I'm Baron Von Dingo, your friendly bard and storyteller, here to tell you what happened when @Captain Jack Fenris and crew of the Moonbeam had a bit of a misunderstanding with a recently reawakened ancient Egyptian force o' nature, which has resulted in their ship being pl...(READ MORE)

"Heading, Captain?" @Rose Nomenclature's ship, the Egregore, was long gone by the time we resurfaced. Damage from the grapples wasn't so bad. "Heading sir?" Shipman Eva likes to keep things moving. Trouble was, I didn't have a plan. "No, uh, bottles with messages near by?" "No sir." "Hyper-intelligent Man Seals barking riddles at us?" "Negative." "Voicemails?" "No." Any payment from our...(READ MORE)

Pomme Contrebandier


"Bonjour! Est-ce que quelqu'un est ici? Quelqu'un?" C'est étrange de crier dans un endroit aussi sacré. Les affichages! Des allées et des allées d'artefacts anciens inestimables, animés, si réels. Eh bien, ils sont réels, mais dans le cadre d'un musée, ils prennent l'idée d'être des caricatures d'eux-mêmes, et pourtant, le Musée de l'Univers de l'âge de pierre 4A le coupe. C'est peut-être en grande partie dû au fait qu'il n'y a pas de boîtiers en verre autour des art...(READ MORE)

Lasso Pout


The big ships came on us out of the sun. Each one as big as a battleship and came with sharp lines, notched fins, and hot lead. I kept low to the ground, providing cover for Carolinaeuphrosyne and the other time travelers as we took shelter behind some big rocks, high caliber automatic weapons fire exploding all around us. These rocks weren't going to save us when those zeps came back around to make another strafing run, but it kept me from taking on any holes. "Hey! Where are the...(READ MORE)
