THE SEVEN SEVEN SEVEN CHALLENGE - MY RESPONSE

Do you hear there?

The Scribblers Den is my favourite part of the Steampunk Empire. Wonderful, kind and considerate people hang out in Jack Tylers' virtual bar for writers. Hemmingway without the hooch perhaps. Anyway I have never blogged and this is my first effort  at a blog courtesy of Jacks good advice that a blogspot comes with being a Steampunk Empire citizen! Huzzah! 

And so teh Seven Seven Seven challenge is a writing game where we have to reveal the Seventh…

Roadtrip north, June 2015

June 1, starting at 4:30 am, after about 3.5 hours of sort-of sleep.

YouTube Channel

I know I haven't been on here in quite awhile. Life happened and I found myself taken away from the community.

However, I have news, for all those curious. I have started a YouTube Channel. I am doing the game commentary thing. While not directly steampunk, per se, I where my monocle on my head in every video. I do want to do some steampunk inspired games in the future. I know Guns of Icarus is out,but without a good group of people to play with, I would be kind of floundering. If…

A bit about The Brick

I've had an interest in steampunk far longer than I've known of the term. I devoured the classics as a kid. Vernes, Wells, Burroughs, Haggard, Heinlein. I've led a rather interesting life. Soldier, Medic, Scout, EMT, Nurse, Freemason, and faithful husband to a sweet lady that puts up with my lunacy.

News in San Diego!

San Diego Steampunks are getting organized! sdsteampunk.org, a Meet-Up group, and more! Come check us out!

...

My granddaughter recommended that I compose my missive with such blatant casualness.  She feels that a more light-hearted tone will connect with those seekers of fun and adventure that I had previously alienated with my more traditional overtones. I cannot agree but as I am a woman of my word, I have honored her request. I never promised not to explain myself!

Fringe Steam Punk Fest

Thanks for the advice Captain. While we have done this event for 4 years now this will be the first year of the fest that we will add-in Steam Punk: So as you might guess we are pretty much novices in this genre. In addition to the multitude of entertainment we normally have, we have commissioned a playwright to create, cast, direct and put on a Steam Punk themed Burlesque Show for the event.

 

We would like to finish the night with a special Steam Punk Ball and have reserved…

Happy Memorial/Decoration Day! (And a minor update)

      Hello.  This is me, coming to you in twenty-first century human mode, to remind you that "Monday holidays" are complete and utter nonsense.  If we lose sight of why our (American) holidays were placed on given dates, then we lose our sense of history.  Because I strongly believe in this, I am celebrating Memorial Day today, when it belongs, on the 30th of May.  I encourage all American readers of these words to do the same.  Have your own parades, picnics, and play Sousa…

Alas!: A Complete Mystery Novelette in Twenty-Six Alphabetical Installments

Alas!: A Complete Mystery Novelette in Twenty-Six Alphabetical Installments is, as you may have deduced, a complete mystery novelette in 26 alphabetical installments.  It isn't precisely steampunk, or, rather, it isn't steampunk at all, as it is set in the Edwardian era, not in the Victorian, and as it is a mystery set in a sleepy English village, and not, for instance, in a zeppelin (though that would be amusing).  But!  I have the temerity to submit it to your attention nonetheless.  It…

An introduction to Airships: Conquer the Skies

I've been working on a Steampunk real-time strategy game for the past two years. It's not quite done yet, but it's reached a certain level of presentability, so it's time to tell you about it.

In the game, you design airships by slotting together modules: weapons, engines, giant…

Please Help!

As some of you know already me and a friend are starting up a steampunk restaurant.  We are starting to make up the business plan and need some information on the market, so we made up this survey!

It would help us greatly if you could fill this out!  It's only seven questions and will take no more than 2 minutes.

Thank you so so much! <3
