2011 Emerald City Steampunk Expo

November 4, 2011 – After a long and tiresome journey, the Mighty Airship Luftsturm finally arrived in Wichita, Kansas and found themselves amidst a crowd of fellow time travelers and airship crews! With Gunny, Stark, and Jade accompanied by the intrepid captain of the T.S. Maelstrom, Ruby Spitfire, the crew met many fine adventurers such as the legendary Airship Isabella, Airship Horizons, representatives from the Red Fork Empire, and the beautifully-crafted Airship Joker, as well as bearing witness to some incredible musical talent. With new alliances made and new friendships formed, it was almost a shame to go. However, there’s a multiverse to be saved, and the Luftsturm must be ever vigilant! Keep your eyes on the horizon, for who knows where the Luftsturm will end up next!

2011 Steampunk/Pirate Fest

June 10, 2011 – The Mighty Airship Luftsturm made its debut at the Steampunk/Pirate Festival at Boster Castle in Kingdom City, MO. The airship was made a time machine, and the crew of the Luftsturm landed amidst a festival of pirates.

The crew greeted travelers and wanderers, warning them of the pirates lurking about and making an oath to protect the visitors from any pirate mayhem. They openly invited anyone interested to inspect the crash-landed time machine.

Captain Ludwig von Steelmann continuously invented new and strange devices in his sleep, while the broken Navigator tried to put the ship back on course. First Officer Judge and Gunnery Master McManus were the hired gun-hands, making sure there was no plundering of the ship.
