Mars Needs Mechanics
London, 1873: The Royal Academy of Space Exploration has announced its intention to launch a mission to Mars by year's end. In its quest to claim, fully explore, and map the great red planet, the Academy is holding recruitment competitions for various positions on the crew, particularly the Astronautical Engineer, who must be resourceful and efficient in the construction of various mechanisms and ship maintenance. In Mars Needs Mechanics, players represent engineers and tinkerers from all over the Empire competing for a spot on the crew of the H.M.S. Victoria VII.
