Any damage is the result of the weather itself, not the machine and must be adjudicated by the Gamekeeper, as this will largely depend on other conditions - is there a nearby river that bursts its banks, are the characters caught in a storm in their advanced (but fragile) airship, etc. Requires plugging into a power station to operate.
