Mopey

The Mopey Tortoise is a cargo-hauling aircraft officially registered under the British crown, run by Captain Hawkins, a gal of Europan pirate extraction. Already taking a shipment of Cloud Baboon dung to England from Paris, the Tortoise is hired by Seffie to transport Tarvek there as well, in the hope that he will woo and win Agatha, thus leaving poor Gil with no one to marry but Seffie.

Alas, many things  get in the way of this plan. When the ship finally does reach England, most of the crew are dead, and it is carrying three unexpected passengers, two of them unwilling. Known surviving crew members of the Mopey Tortoise include Lucy and Lilligirl.

The Works[]

The Mopey Tortoise, or nearly identical ship missing only the outboard engines on the balloon hull, appears on a card under the heading "Racing Dirigible 1". The ship qualifies as Adorable, Speedy and Machine.
