I'm a new guy on the block and when I do Fan Fics I like to be as detailed as I can so I was wondering is anyone had a good link for Airships, the fiction I'm on right now is set in the Great War from what I have seen I'm leaning more toward the Clanker style. Just a little more in site into workings and things like that would be great! Thanks ahead of time!

"Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling solar systems, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing. That was the most arrogant and mendacious minute of 'world history,' but nevertheless, it was only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths, the star cooled and congealed, and the clever beasts had to die. One might invent such a fable, and yet he still would not have adequately illustrated how miserable, how shadowy and transient, how aimless and arbitrary the human intellect looks within nature. There were eternities during which it did not exist. And when it is all over with the human intellect, nothing will have happened." - Friedrich Nietzsche
