New Year felicitations to all from Steampunk Shrunk Towers.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Arborius Widdershins – alchemist, magician, man of letters and all-round white wizard.
Not exactly steampunk, I hear you say. Well no, perhaps not, but Mrs S has always had a keen interest in all things mystical and when I noted the range of magic books in her little library, I couldn’t resist accepting her invitation to come and stay for a while.
Obviously, in my line of work there is a need for solitude. Not easy to find here with that tinker chap thumping away on his workbench and all those ladies chattering away, so I asked if any of the towers were vacant.
Fortunately there is one that will be suitable. Rather small, perhaps, but my skills are such that I should have little difficulty applying the ‘tardisium’ spell to increase its inner dimensions. I’m sure I can persuade Mr Entwistle to make me a couple of pieces of suitable furniture. My needs are few.
Meanwhile, a charming young seer by the name of Daphne de Voire has agreed to allow me to use her desk during the night, while she is sleeping. Most agreeable.
All in all, I think I will enjoy my sojourn at this curious residence.
