Clockhaven, April 10th, 188X; The first stage in the takeover of Clockhaven

**Posted on a large bill over the door to the Clockhaven AE&P plant**

ATTENTION:

This Facility is now under the control of Dr. Dinosaur Runner.   All tresspassers or anyone who tampers with the new Tesla Needle on the roof, will be met with great violence!  If certian effects are noticed, namely disruption of any devices, lessening of energy levels, beer and ale going flat, do not be alarmed, direct any complaints to the Clockhaven AE&P Facility, where we will respond with EXTREME VIOLENCE! ….against you that is.   DO NOT CROSS DOCTOR DINOSAUR!!!

 

 

((The Tesla Needle is a device that leeches aetheric power,  and then broadcasts it to a receiver on board Platform 11, as well as broadcasts feedback back to it’s source, the tesla needle, Depending on  the frequency of the feedback loop , the area of the plant, and clockhaven in general, can have verious effects,  disrupting other tesla devices, including some models of logic engines, cognigators, and compasses, automotons or those with mechanical components can have verious effects, as well as the side effect that the device actually can drain the energy from other devices, including steam and gas powered.  automotons and those with mechanical implants may also feel effected.  All leached energy is sent to platform 11.  there’s a smaller device by the portal generator primarily keeping Miss Falcon busy chasing a randomly moving portal through Antarctica and out of the way.   the plant hasn’t actually changed hands, Dr. D is just taking it over and using it while Miss Falcon is conveiniently out of the way, you can still buy your mushrooms they’re not poisoned ))

    *notices that the power level has dropped on his ancient TARDIS in Fullarton House*

    “Thats strange…wonder whats going on at the plant?”

    *pulls a lever and opens the engines out further to draw more power from the plant…and Dr Dinosaurs needle at the same time without realising it*

    “Gahh!! why is the power levels lower?!” *turns some dials and levers to attempt to disconnect from the power draw, sends out constructs to locate the source*

    * sits in the Gangplank ‘listening’ to the ambient ‘noises’ of the aether and wondering just what she hears . . *

    *continues trudging through the deep snow of Antarctica with a penguin thrown over her shoulder, on the trail of the rogue portal*

    …beer and ale going flat…

    * Cadmus quickly checks the beer.*

    “Still good in Babbage Canals. Still better safe than sorry.”
    *Loads several pistols and straps on his cutlass*

    “Any excuse for EXTREME VIOLENCE!”

    *Heads out the door.*

      At least I don’t have to worry about the sake… Now if he messed with the town’s coffee, then I’d really worry about people getting violent. Especially some of those monks.

        Erm…might be wiser not to give him ideas. *grin*

    *The lift gate opens and he steps into the street, calmly adjusting the lines in his coat.  The information Stephen reported concerning the power situation was an annoyance to say the least.  There was work to be finished at the Emporium…*

    “Seriously?”

    “My town?” 

    Byron chuckles softly to himself, musing about endangered species, as he strides off toward the power plant.

    *hears popping and crackling and stands straight up from her bed.* Oy! Kaylee do you…ouch! *a spark arched from her leg, her hair suddenly standing on end as a loud vibration followed by a BANG! shook the Gangplank and then goes quiet again, her hair settling*

    What in the name of God’s favorite gumdrops was that?!

    *Ponders the cause of flickering lights & slant of the chandelier in his empty shop.

    “This can’t be good,” Henly thought, “this area of the city has a healthy demographic of clockwork citizens, not to mention those who rely on prosthetics.”

    Things were about to turn unhealthy…

    Trudging through the deep snow of Antarctica Avariel Falcon and her penguin finally catch up with the rogue portal that had inadvertently dumped her into this snowy wasteland.

    But just as she reached the portal it began to collapse! After quickly calculating her options she takes the only logical course of action open to her.

    Taking the drunk penguin by the legs she tosses the penguin through the portal!

    *pauses in his work to look at the dazed bird that suddenly plopped through*

     

    DID SOMEONE LOSE A PENGUIN?!
