I was with a a wench for a month and last week i took her to my quarters and we had some fun...then she said she wanted to marry me.  Then I threw her over board.

I think you misread the sign. This is not the barbaric brute club.

Mssr Delaney, would you be so kind, sir, as to read us a tale from the Necronomist? I fear the Captain has been subjecting us to the Chainly Mail.

Ah... hm... Let's see... There appears to have been a sharp increase in nearly nude young ladies running about in the streets with political agendas... And it looks like the governments are considering the gold standard again. Any specific requests?

The gold standard eh? Pity they're wasting their type over that. The brass standard is of much more value to me.

Indeed, indeed, but when was the last time governments gave a wit about what the people want?

Too true my fine fellow.


Extracts Cthuluan cigar from silver holder and ignites with spark from flintlock pistol. The musket ball embeds itself in the portrait of the founder's left nostril.

What in god's name is a Cthuluan cigar? Some kind of multi-pronged 5-dimensional smoking horror?

I think they're a bit overrated. Mostly rolled tobacco in dried squid tentacles. They taste beastly and give off a foul black smog but are a good conversational piece.

Oooh, black smog... be rather nice for a steel and iron pipe, wouldn't you think?

They're also made exclusively by Deep Ones and are rather hard to come by,

And therefore expensive, and therefore suitable for a gent's smoking apparatus.

Precisely. Branching off that, where did you acquire such a rarity?

Bought it from a blind airship captain who swears he got a crate full as a gift from a sultan for shooting down an air Kraken that was threatening their city.

I wonder if my valet could brew up some Ponape blend coffee, I know it's not tea but goes nice with the Cthuluan cigar.

Steampunk is in the eye of the beholder, in the hands of the tinkerer and in the needle of the costumer.

Dunwich? I was under the impression our cook was from Innsmouth. Maybe that's just because he makes a mean basket of fish and chips, though.
