In the last episode, Emily, Senda, & our special guest Mariam all left Lady Selene’s gala when the mysterious Dr. Petrova kidnapped Constance, a common-born girl gifted with magic normally reserved for the nobles. Arriving in the poor area of town known as the Squaler, Lady Allison Castleton found herself out of place in a new, rather pungent area of town. The investigator Cordelia Scarborough flipped her ball gown into the disguise of a man complete with mustache, and the ruffian Goli was able to connect with someone who told them where Dr. Petrova’s laboratory is.

Lastly, it came to our attention that we didn’t handle the colonial tropes of steampunk in a very aware way. We’re going to keep running the series, and we thing that at the end we did better, but we’re also going to say that we are going to do better and be more aware in the future.
