“Wax Cylinders & Wax Seals.”

This time next week we shall be together once more to celebrate our journey through the portals of imagination and immerse ourselves into an alternate 1893 World’s Fair!

We are also nearing the launch of our annual Steam & Sorcery LARP mystery game that places you at the heart of the investigation into “The Shadow of Nosferatu.” Solve the enigma, save the day, and win prizes! This week we present to you the penultimate clue card in this story.

These clues cards can be used in our immersive live action role-playing game (LARP) Steam & Sorcery; see below for details of the game. Click HERE for the previous clue cards.
