Day the first: pre-production and aesthetic considerations

This day at 1 a.m. a meeting was satisfactorily concluded, in which it was resolved that

i) the entertainment be set in a land of exploding dinosaurs, from which no man has returned alive,
ii) the aesthetic and stylistic elements of the entertainment be consistent throughout the body of work, vis. all written material including the textual feedstock of the analytical engine itself,
iii) the first part of this day be spent primarily in contemplation and preparation for the great work to begin this evening.

Mr P. Scavenger, Chief Analytical Engineer
