Plot Bunnies...A Gaslight/Steampunk/H.G. Wells LARP
Story...You have built/bought/stolen a time travel device based on The designs of HG Wells. The unit is fully operational and of course is steam powered. Just as you are ready to put it into operation and flee to the past where your fore knowledge will allow you to live in luxury, the doors and windows to your lair burst in. It seem your enterprise has gained the attention of several interested parties as well...(Enter the players. Billionaire industrialists, corporate and private detectives...(Think Pinkerton or Wells Cargo type)...cops, ramrod cowboy types, post industrial war veterans, ect...) you make your daring move to escape in he time device when something goes wrong. You and those in the room with you feel the twist of vertigo as the device brilliantly flashes and... Your lair is empty.
Those with you find themselves scattered in small groups (Say 1 to 4 different people per group) lost in the past during the Victorian era. Any communications devices may have a limited ability to reach others, but the range and quality will be close to useless if the players have no knowledge of those that traveled back with them. The Time travel device...what is left anyway... Is hopelessly useless until parts can be repaired or recreated. Where have you and the others ended up? Was that a scream in the night? And why does it feel like you are being watched...like a mouse near a lounging cat...looks like you found your way into a new world of darkness and you might be on the menu...
