Old Fashioned PenPals

This the group for those who are interested in being penpals, by writing old fashioned letters (ie no e-mails, texts, IMs, FaceBook, Twitter, etc) to one another.

Reencounter: One Figure One = Character Skirmish Rules

Found an old set of rules for a table top miniature skirmish game titledReencounter. Relatively good rules for snap-shot One miniature = One Character...ranging from French and Indian War up to WWI.  Attached to this discussion you will find a copy of the rules. I'm interested to see what other's come up with around Steampunking these.See More

Profile Information

Was drawn to Steampunk long before they had a name for it. Grew up surrounded by antiques. Facinated by the feel of Neo-Victorian environs, attitudes, ambiance and creativity. Most importantly enjoy connecting with like minded others. Love making Art (Watercolor, oils sculpting, silver and copper work, soapstone, found objects, miniatures in a Steampunk style) and accoutrementata of Steampunk... when I steal the time. Very open to Brainstorming and collaborative work with other Cultural Creatives.
Often enjoy writing, or at least attempting to write. I love good dialogue. Interested in R/P but time is always an issue, (sorry for that). Formerly a saltwater sailor (in real life dear reader), currently living as far from the ocean as imaginable due to being blown off track...major course corrections in the works....time will tell ^ ^. Looking forward to more travel in the years to come, Europe topping the list. Could spend my life in museums, but then I'd get nothing accomplished. Everything is about balance in this life , dont you think? Staying on an even keel...that is the tricky thing... that and not getting blown off course, of course.

Awaiting the Dragon.

Posted on June 9, 2012 at 3:01am 0 Comments

Anyone who knows me will testify to my inability to type in a coheent fashion. I await the arrival of the DRAGON...apparently a form of soft ware that everyone but me and the next neighbor's West Highland White Terrier, knows all about.

Apparently it is a form of dictation software. A co-worker gave me a demonstration of it on his Smart-Phone. The phone over heard my exclaimation and admonished me that "There is no need for profanity." I am NOT KIDDING. Too smart by half, I…

Battle Scene Rivets Draft


The Burton gun from the enemy ironwalker’s turret was spitting a withering rain of steel into the now abandoned earthworks. The ironwalker had temporarily halted it’s grinding progress 300 meters from the company’s only artillery piece, a rifled 2 pounder. A very light cannon, but well concealed and on the enemy flank.


Colonel Crouse, peering through his glass, scanned the ironclad, and casually addressed the gunnery sergeant that…
