**Summary**

The journey begins in the world of Alberius, one revolutionized by the steam-powered creations of engineering and development giant Steammech. The Virginia is their crowning achievement, a repurposed train that promises to open the world in ways never before thought possible. To the public’s curiosity, the specifics are known only by a select few.

Marshall Gillborne’s life was saved by Steammech’s prototype mechanical arm, designed to operate heavy machinery. Left without parents or a home, Marshall was indebted to the company and became a workhand aboard the vessel. Join Marshall as he investigates the mysteries aboard the Virginia on its maiden voyage, and uncover the truth behind Steammech’s latest innovation.
