Hey guys, and ladies too of course. I'm part of a small independent game studio and we're working on a steampunk sky pirate themed game. I obviously can't say much about our game but I would like…Continue

"A simple solution might be to use a wind up kitchen timer. You can pop the timer dial off the front and there's a peg that you can use with the winding key. It also makes suitably ratchety noises when you wind it up."

Hey everyone, it's been awhile since I've logged on. Went to college and all that, got a job, life happened; but I'm ready to get back into the game!I've recently succeeded in introducing my girlfriend to the steampunk community and she surprised me with a fantastic concept for a persona. Long story short it involves a human sized wind-up mechanism that she would wear on her back. I've seen this done before but most people accomplish this by strapping a clock key to their backs like so …See More

Profile Information

Introduction
Hi, I'm Dakota. AKA Alastor James Cypher.

Hi there. My names Dakota and I started into steampunking just a few years ago. I quickly found several friends who were also interesting and we have been spending a lot of time in our workshop making various clothing items and crafting characters. Together we are known as Airship Calibra and we have big plans, for big things.

I am a writer, and since I've started into steampunk I have of course wanted to begin writing on it.

I'm very laid back and I love meeting new steampunkers and hearing their ideas so please stop by and say hello!
