I would just like to share that my group is playing in a 2nd "season" of Through the Breach. In Season 1 I pulled black joker and proceeded to play Beauregard LeBlanc the gremlin gunslinger. This season I got rail hobo, but not without a familiar friend helping me out...
So, I'm trying to figure out some rough pricing for the cost of a ticket Through The Breach. Initially, I figured the cost would be a bit more espensive than the Trans-Siberian Railroad in its infancy, but it turns out that historical ticket prices for such things are notoriously hard to find out (as they were issued in paper copies every three months, and nobody can be bothered scanning them all in, if they haven't disintegrated). So, I'm working off inflation rates now, but it turns out that it costs only around 100 Euro to ride from Moscow to Vladivostoc (without factoring in bribes), which seems far too cheap, as that is 2/3 £ in 1897 (which if 1 Malifaux Pence = 1 Earth Pence, then that works out to about 3 Soulstones, having rounded up assuming the Guild are being jerks - I've deflated the pound's value previously so increasing it slightly seems okay). But, then I think about it, and realize that's one way only. And the Guild would want to encourage people to travel One Way (but not the other) to import cheap labour. And its for Economy. Which would be standing room only. It turns out the Trans-Siberian Railroad also has Golden Eagle/Imperial rooms which run up to 1410 pounds, or around 45 SS also. So, per day: Emmissary Class = 45 SS = £15 Economy to Malifaux = 3 SS = £1 Economy to Earth = 5 SS = £2 NB: My maths is deliberately scalping at every opportunity, making a round trip in pounds more expensive, and therefore less appealing. The Guild probably write this off as "being offset by the New Labour Incentive Rebate" or some other piece of chicanery. What do people think?
I'm looking to fill out some of my missing pieces from different crews. I live in Australia so please factor that into any decisions made before offering to sell models. I am willing to purchase Kaeris and Mei Feng Box Sets.
