Ether Feast

Tonight we invite you to join us on a journey to a corner of our universe that parallels our world in time, but not technology. A place where coal powered machinery flourishes in place of the integrated circuit, where nylon and elastic has been replaced by leather and canvas. Our adventure will feature classical dishes from the Victorian era with a modern and molecular twist. 

-Cheese Board and 
-Czar Salad
-Earl Grey Consomme
-Dr J.H. Salisbury Steak
-Bread and Butter pudding with a single malt sauce
- Jekyll's Dragon, an absinthe and opium cocktail

Cocktail specials all night including the Mesmer Mule and Hermann Carbine

Dress code is mandatory, formal wear or Steampunk.

Prebooking is required for the dinner with vegetarian options on request.

$70 for modern formal wear
$50 for Steampunk wear
All others will be denied entry for the duration of the dinner, muhahaha!

I am writing my first novel and would benefit from some assistance.


I have an idea for a character to be based in a library. She is going to be the main character.


Any blogs, videos or assistance is greatly appreciated.



LRP, LARP, steampunk

Zeppelin Games Steampunk Live-Action Role-Playing

Hi everyone! I'm one of the organisers of a Live-Action Role-Playing group based in Melbourne. We're called Zeppelin Games and we've been running Steampunk-themed LARP events since 2009.

We'd like to invite anybody interested along to our next event!

Our LARP events take place over a weekend, with players spending the whole time in the role of either their own character or one supplied by the organisers. We've developed a ruleset which is both fair and full of potential. Games are set in the fictional nation of Fumare, in a fantasy Steampunk world of our own devising. We've had some excellent events so far and we'd really like to push ourselves this next time, so come along and see how you like it!
The event details are below the cut.Collapse )

Breaking Euchronia News: LIVE TESLA COIL! ... 3 days to go!

Greetings folks,

We have some amazing, last-minute news: we will have a genuine LIVE TESLA COIL display at Euchronia! This has been quite a thing to organize and we didn't want to announce it until we were pretty sure it would be happening, but we can now confim that senior Physicist Ed Bondarenko, former head of the Telstra Research High Voltage Lab, will be doing live Tesla Coil and Electrostatic Leviation displays throughout the earlier part of the evening, so you'll want to make sure you come early to see this fantastic display of SCIENCE!

We're also quite chuffed to note that we were listed this past weekend as the featured pick for New Years Eve in the Sunday Age: even the city's $2.5M free fireworks display didn't merit that honour!

We also have two new fine artists added to our already amazing bill: Christopher
James Percival
from Perth and Robo von Bismark from right here in Melbourne, with some more amazing artworks for your viewing pleasure. Christopher has also produced some amazing signage work which you'll see around the venue on the night, as well as our spectacular programme book, all new ALTV membership cards (which can be collected on the door) and sundry other designwork. In addition, we also have two new performers to announce: Nikolai and Scarlet will be entertaining you with Fire and Brimstone (or similar — we expect it will smell better) as you enter the venue, so keep an eye out!

We also wanted to make specific mention of our top-billed dance performer, Magdalene from New Zealand, who will be performing not one but two awesome acts. Her first will be more burlesque and Absinthe-themed (ooh la la!) but the second will be her famous Cenobite dance, sure to enthrall and amaze, and as seen at Torture Garden (UK) and the Christchurch Fetish Ball. (This second act is not for the fainthearted and so we're featuring it toward the end of the evening: well worth sticking around for!)

Finally, we can now announce our Drinks Menu for Euchronia, including a range of vintage themed cocktails with recipes from the turn of the century and beyond, and the prices — well, see for yourself!

If you're still looking for sartorial inspiration, please check out our What to Wear and Where to Get It pages. Importantly, for those of you who're keen to add a Holostatic Aetheric Discombobulator or similar to your accoutrements, we have a much more open policy this time around, and will be permitting prop weapons — but please ensure you read the policy carefully.

Please note that tickets can no longer be posted out to you (in case they don't reach you on time), but you can either come in to Wildilocks, Peril Underground or Of Science and Swords to buy your tickets in person up til close of business on the 31st, or you can buy online to pick up on the door from! You can also purchase from Moshtix either online or at any Moshtix outlet up til 6pm on the 31st December. (Limited door sales will be available, with preference for ALTV members.)

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
