Aether Powered

Take one old Steamer Trunk

Joseph would have rather gotten money in his eccentric uncle’s will, but instead attorneys had a heavy, beat-up old steamer trunk delivered to his Seattle home. Since both his parents had passed away, he needed money to pay the skyrocketing property taxes more than luggage.

Add copies of Tesla’s inventions

The box was filled with odd devices, apparently built by some associate of Nikola Tesla, like something out of a steampunk novel. Who knew their value? But they had to be worth something, right? Until Joseph broke one.

A smidge of struggling student

Maybe he could fix it, he majored in electrical engineering after all. He borrowed a lab and tinkered with it until made it work. Now he has an unbelievable machine, an earth-shaking discovery, and no idea how to profit from it.

And a generous portion of century-old grudge

A shadowy organization finds him when he joins the Seafair Pirates to announce his device. They make him an offer he can’t refuse, and they won’t take no for an answer.

Mix well

Blend steampunk science, rich villains, cosplaying pirates, a poor orphan, and a gold-digging girlfriend in a science fiction adventure chase between Portland and Seattle. Serve hot. Would even Tesla be able to untangle this mess?
