It was a most splendid day indeed! My wife and I were very pleased to host Lady Helen Steampunk
and Agent Darling
of the League of Victorian Imagineers (Oamaru)
for this event. They were such a lovely couple, and we had a delightful time with them before Aether & Iron as well. Their trip back to Oamaru was delayed due to the volcanic ash cloud from Chile.
And a sky-kraken belched. And the skies over the South Island were cast over with the stench of the foul beast's charcoal breath. And the dirigibles were made fast to their moorings, for not a single airship captain would venture forth into the inky blackness of the maw of that great beast. And the intrepid travelers Lady Helen Steampunk and Agent Darling were thus stranded in Auckland after the "Aether & Iron" event, to await a brave captain in the morn who may offer them safe passage home.
They made it home safely a day later than planned.
