To thoroughly prepare for an upcoming steampunk adventure themed project, we recently dispatched one of our field researchers (admittedly the only one we have left, thanks to all the cannibal islands we do business with) to Iceland to seek out the inspiration for Jules Verne’s bestseller Journey to the Center of the Earth, and its much lesser known sequel, Journey to the Center of the Earth Two - Electric Boogaloo. Pictured here is the chasm that Monsieur Verne visited, probably while looking for a restroom. Our researcher brought back photos, sketches, field notes, and a mild social disease, as well as a yearning to display what he found on the Snaeffels volcano peninsula on exhibit here in our upcoming club in Central Florida. In the weeks ahead, we will be posting more information about how you can participate in bringing our Steampunk Adventurer’s Club to life, and become a member of a very unique thematic experience, which we have clearly gone to great lengths to realize. Darkvale studios' blog, which has admittedly been rather quiet lately, has a great deal of new things to report, so expect much more frequent posts that you can look forward to (or dread, we won’t tell you how to feel). Big strangeness is in the works, and we can’t wait to share the pictures and uncomfortable stories of our upcoming projects with you all. Keep your antennae up, and so long for now.
