Inept Engineers

Defining Characteristics

The Inept Engineers' main defining characteristic is that everyone has an ineptitude. Yes, everyone. And that isn't just OK - it is amazing. Other strongly held principles are that each person should get to choose their own level of involvement (whether that's a little or a lot), that they help each other, and that no one should drink the Ship's Water. The main purpose of this camp is to have a very good time - and as the meaning of that will vary by the individual, the ship sports a diverse set of people and interests. There is no single unifying era or aesthetic that describes the group as a whole - their ship has wandered to many places across time and thus boasts many personas!

As of 2023, the Inept Engineers has approximately 75 active members.


The Inept Engineers were founded (and primarily reside) in the Canton of Summergate, with numerous members across the Kingdom of Caid and other parts of the Knowne World. The stories of their household histories are tales best told by firelight. As such, the only real way to learn it is to come by their camp and inquire.

House Values

  • Be safe.
  • Do nothing which will cause more negative attention than positive attention.
  • Help your fellow Engineers.
  • Don't drink the Ship's Water.
