Hi! This is a static copy of the larpresume site (geeky shout-out to the command 'wget' for making this easy!). We had to move webhosts and I'm working in the background to try and get the site back up and functioning. Until then, you'll be able to read what's already here but won't be able to edit anything.

If you want to see where I'm at with getting the dynamic/live site up and running, feel free to take a look at live.larpresume.boldlygoingnowhere.org .

But the Chief Royal Computator of Probable Events, whose complex machinery and predictive algorithms advise the empire on its most fruitful course of actions, has decreed that in order for Britain to prevail, the airship Caliburnus must fly as scheduled, with its crew manifesto untouched. Why this small vessel and its unlikely passengers are the key to Britain’s future, not even the Chief Royal Computator can say...
