Okay, with Snapdragon's concept approved, I think we are ready to go.
I'm hoping that Autumn is going to flesh out her character a little, and Snapdragon, I would love a bit more detail, like her age, for example. However, I am going to open an OOC thread, probably tomorrow, and entwine all the various threads from all the characters to see if I can weave a believable Oz for us to play in.
The really odd thing I've always felt about the Wizard Of Oz is that tin does not rust. Therefore the tin man in the original stories should logically have been made of iron.
Tin does oxidise in hot water vapour, however, and so I can imagine a scenario where our tin woman was hit by a blast of steam from a geyser and got oxidised. Or, possibly it was the wicked witch's doing all along?
