"Ok, I hear (see) several opinions. Most are good, a few are lacking in vision, but overall we get a sense of what SteamPunk is. First, lets disallow any restrictions. As one member said, Ancient civs used Steam to power…"

Profile Information

Introduction
I am a writer, artist and scholar. I live in Australia, though I've lived a few other places in the world. I research steampunk, blog about books, art and films. I roleplay and play games online. I used to be an indie musician and I was the top of my art and English classes in high school, I didn't quite make it to the top in my history classes but I loved to try. I like to put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard or stylus to graphics tablet and I live deep, deep down the rabbit-hole where creation runs rampant.
