Falling in with the wealthy of Elysia with the aid of a stolen ID and mask had resulted in not only unique pleasure cruse but now the wild parties of the Argo's upper decks were soon to be eclisped. "its about damn time!"

As he makes his way down gangway the dogs of Oceania can smell that he's not of the upper class.
He's about to pull his gun, when a wealthy lady from the night before pays the bribe to the guards.
The guard shakes his hand and says "Welcome to the Palace of Tiamat! May you find pleasure beyond your dreams!"
The wealthy lady gives him a wink as she strolls onto the landing platform.
The landing area is filled with lovely ladies and he can hear the sound of gambling coming from the great hall.
His heart is warmed like a child entering a carnival!

the voyage is probably as awesome as the destination

Yeah, I imagine it's a nice flight.
There's probably gynoids and game machines onboard for the real addicts who can't wait.

Yeah, I sort of picture Elysium and Oceania as the "civilized" lands and the Forest and the wasteland as more lawless.

This is really cool - on Systerra, there is a steampunk kingdom known as Cuprica that has a fleet of airships not too different from this one. You have a really cool concept here!

Wow! it's amazing how many things we've both incorporated into out worlds.
I feel like it comes down to: airships, hovercraft, machine guns but not many so people often use crossbows or swords,
mutants, "magic" either technological or mutational, and all set in an ancient futuristic wasteland.

It really is - I just figured that with manufacturing dead in the water, eventually things wear out, and ammo caches are depleted, and fuel tanks are emptied, and folks fall back on whatever they can scavenge and cobble together to survive.

Wow! cool! That's such a crucial element to my world too.
Manufacturing is dead!
It gives me such a good feeling, that everything is unique and most likely rigged in order to work.

Oh yes I like this a lot. :-) Shouldn't be too hard to build the airship either. The building may be a little more troublesome but I think I might give this one a go. Make a change from future tanks. :lol: I'd really like to see some British Victorian soldiers around. Your work is so Space 1889.

Cool, so glad you're into it.
Yeah, I can imagine the Oceanian guards with long rifles and exaggerated pith helmets.
These guys from Last Exile are pretty cool looking [link]
I'd like to try my own version of that look.

Yeah the last exile ones are cool very 17th century. Personally Victorian British Army in pith helmets and gasmasks looks good too.

Thanks, Yeah this one really seemed to hit a chord with people.
It got more faves than most of my other stuff in just one day.
My all time fantasy is that some movie studio will discover my world and want to make a movie out of it.

Thanks! How do you think I should explain airships like this in my futuristic apocalypse world?
Seems like someone could easily take it out with a missile or something.
Maybe it has an invisible forcefield around it!:)

:iconleroysquab:
leroysquab Featured By Owner May 2, 2011
You're most welcome. ;-) Explain it? :-? Hmmm... perhaps by suggesting that the airspace is protected by a system so advanced that it can detect even the stealthiest jet yet failed to consider something as low tech an approach as a hot air ship. :)
Reply
:iconfarawayforest:
farawayforest Featured By Owner May 2, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow! that's perfect!
I don't really want jet fighters in my world anyway.
Maybe it's an old satellite system turned on during the war but the operators were killed before they could turn it off. It only tracks high altitude craft so low flying hovercraft are ok and maybe the profile of the airships is close to the Sky Jellies [link] so they don't fire!
Really really great idea!
So it's cool if I use it?
I'll totally credit you whenever the matter comes up in an image!:)
