Meet the crew of the BSS Phoenix at Castlefest
Steamnation is not your typical steampunk group. We are not simply individuals in a group. We are a team, all working under the command of Captain Glenwell. As an airship crew, we’re officially working in cargo delivery, a little less officially as smugglers of everything under the radar. All of us have diverse backgrounds, which at times crossed paths and locked together. We work as one, all with our own expertise, to make every job a success.
Meet the team
Our captain is the driving force behind the crew, he scores jobs and makes sure we get paid. Explorer and navigator John A. Wander plans the trip and gets us where we need to be. Absinthologist James greases our throats and will explain to you the wonderous world of Absinthe and unravel its mysteries. But beware, once he starts, there’s no stopping him and you’ll get to hear the complete history of the green liquid.
When we lose a limb, Doctor Elizabeth sews it back on so we don’t lose our heads. She’s always ready for a Game of Graces or other Victorian games and is also the Tiffin master at our sophisticated Victorian Tea duels. They can get very dangerous but never uncivilised. Try to beat our n°1, I dare you!
Stay away from Mr Brown, our cook. He’s as crazy as it gets! He’ll blow your fuse in the blink of an eye. But what he cooks up in his caboose is damn tasty! And then there’s yours truly, Nathaniël L Hetfield, chronicler for Steamnation. I might just be one of the most normal ones on the crew (cough..). Also, I’m in charge of our written stories. I stand guard over our reputation and pen down our adventures for generations to come. You’ll find them between the trumpery on my desk. Be on the lookout for my camera, as it captures your past, present and future on film. I will try to trick you into a steamfie.
Join us and the rest of the crew on our crazy adventures, join us for high tea, biscuits and gossip or a chat about steampunk and Steamnation.
