The Lilly Mystery

It’s early century, but the rapid development of steam technology makes it feel like we are living in the far future. Steam power has ushered in a technological age with machines and devices that are amazing. Steam power is modern power, yet the age old drives of greed, lust, envy, and hate still guide us, and still, murder happens.

The guests in this steampunk world arrive at the Lilly Hotel to gather in this quaint place in the middle of town, yet surrounded by woods. Actually, that sounds a little creepy. It’s a comfortable establishment with good food, but the Lilly’s claim to fame are the seances held there. So ghosts are expected, as are the lost loved ones. Perhaps what is surprising are all the tawdry foibles of the living; greed, secrets, lust, and the soon to be dearly departed.

So sit down at the table and as soon as the honored guest arrives by steam driven airship you can be assured of an interesting evening… and that someone ain’t gonna make it.
