#1 - Motorized Wheelchair

Builder: Beatnik

For a gentleman (or lady) requiring the use of a wheelchair, this latest model affords him the utmost in mobility. By harnessing the ultimate power source – steam – this wheelchair provides all the self-sufficiency such a gentleman should need. All that is required of a hired helper is the initial input of coal or wood, and then the gentleman is free to go as he chooses. Recent technological breakthroughs have allowed this wheelchair to be equipped with the smallest steam engine ever built, and has reduced the overall weight to merely a few tons.

The low ground clearance of this wheelchair may make transversing some cobblestone streets or muddy lanes difficult, but it is unlikely that a person using this fine wheelchair should want to travel such a dis-pleasurable roadway.

"Might smoke out the house – if it fits!"

#2 - Wizard, Wheels and Wolves

Builder: colonel

The stories, legends and myths about Merlin the Wizard have been told for almost one thousand years - and the last story has yet to be told...

This is the story about Merlin and his chair with wheels and his two wolves - and it might be the last one!

Merlin is very old now. His sight is weakened, he is almost totally deaf, he suffers from brittle-bone disease, and can hardly walk.

But Merlin is still Merlin the Wizard so he got this bright idea to produce a chair with wheels by magic, drawn by his two loyal wolves: Vortigem and Hengist.

So far so good - until today!

Merlin is on his daily chair ride but the carrot is stale and the magic wand is no good anymore. The wolves are taking control and run along the road faster and faster - and suddenly a wheel hits a stump, Vortigem leaps up in the air, and...

Yes, the situation is critical. What will happen next? Wille they all stay safely in the road or will they share the fate of the skeleton at the lakeside?

That's the question.

"Bwaa haa ha! Also, I love Pratchett and the chair is perfect for Windle Poons. Doesn't appear that it will fit through doorways though."

#5 - Rolling Down the Past

Builder: Rook

“Ah the Vikings are coming!”
So I just thought I’d do a line of Viking themed wheelchairs in honor of my ancestry.
This late 12th century chair is pimped out with a custom paint job on its rims and some adjustable battle axes. What else does an old Viking king need?

Tranquility Says:

"How to invade and pillage a village in style."

#7 - Capt. Goldhook Rickshaw

Builder: LuxorV

This animal-propelled wheelchair was built for Capt. Goldhook when he retired from his naval career after the accident during the Great Pirate Wars (rougly around the passage between 17th and 18th centuries). The Captain had it made with the finest woods and special fashion finishies with gold and maroon inlays to catch the eye and stand off in the nìmidst of every assembly. Yes, he is a loud man, and he claims he wants to enjoy the legacy one of his relatives, a certain Capt. Leadhook, left him just after his retirement. The rickshaw design was chosen by the Captain himself since he saw one of those vehicles in Singapore once. The dog pulling it is called Commodore, and is the Captain's best friend and the only being he belives to be totally loyal to him.
