Hurricane Charles

The map dominated one wall of the room, the expanse of the
Steamlands stretched out in all its cartographic glory. Jed reread the telegram

close enough to head that way? She looked at the last updated roster of ship
positions, and drafted the message that would go out on the aethergraph.

She sat at the desk and quickly penned a note destined for
the pneumatic mail.

elements are enroute.

The forecast didn’t offer much hope one way or the other.
