Welcome to Atherton's Magic Vapour! There is a lot of terribly strange content on this blaugh, which I strongly encourage you to explore (but, of course, I would!). If you don't want to click about at random, why not try some of the following Things of Interest?
The Perils of Sir Reginald, Bart. - Interactive Fiction! Lavishly illustrated! You play Sir Reginald, who has survived the horrors of World War I only to find that he has inherited an extremely cursed, extremely deadly manor house. Guide Sir Reginald around his ancestral property and help him get rid of the curse. Traps! An inventory system! Clues! Can you solve the puzzle before Sir Reginald perishes... or worse...?
Alas! - An Edwardian Murder Mystery. Costumes! Inspector Crowner and Sergeant Mug (who have recently made their first public appearance in Mystery Weekly Magazine) investigate the murder of Lord Cadblister in this light-hearted murder mystery! I wrote a chapter a day for a blogging challenge in 2015. Each chapter is from a different POV, and each includes a photograph of me dressed up as the day's character. If you click on the link above, it will take you to the Table of Contents, where you can look at my Various Disguises - or click on a link and read a chapter! I'd recommend starting at the beginning of the story, but that is really up to you.
