Would YOU live in a steampunk universe if you could?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rev. Demetrius Hunt Nov 1, 2021. 1 Reply

      Just a general question.      The only "rule" is that you can set up that particular universe any way you want, within the broad boundaries of steampunk.      For example, my CR&A universe…Continue

      I suppose Buffalo Bill (William F. Cody) is the person who ties everyone in the title together, so I listed him first.  I believe all of these people qualify for an entry in the…Continue

      OK, so not exactly steampunk, but I've had good results getting answers from other steampunks in the areas of cryptography, botany, and entomology, so I'm giving this a try.      For a good 30+…Continue

Profile Information

About you:
I am cautious and suspicious by nature. Also terribly lazy. I spend a great deal of time inside my own head. I believe in Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Hope. I sleep a lot, and that lets me dream.

Since 2012 I have managed to type up several stories which take place in a steampunk universe. I suppose that makes me a writer, but I prefer the term "storyteller". I had some of these tales posted on the old steampunk empire site. I'm not certain what to do about them, at this point.

Buffalo Bill's "The Great West that Was".

      I'm watching a movie serial called "The Indians are Coming", starring Tim McCoy, from 1930.  (The very first "all talking" serial.)  The credits say it was "Suggested by the story The Great West that Was by William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill)".  I searched for that title, and found nothing.  Finally, I decided to try The Buffalo Bill Center of the West, searched for the title there, and it turned…See More

Steampunk Props #3 - Keys, Locks, and Wrist Restraints.

Posted on October 1, 2021 at 2:30am 1 Comment

      If one is involved with various types of investigations, and the apprehension of wanted criminals, like my character is, being able to get into (or out of) locked areas, and keeping any outlaws captured alive under control, can be useful.  So, I've collected a few items to facilitate that.  Like keys -

      These are pretty much ordinary keys…

Ballistol - A steampunk multi-purpose oil(?)

Posted on September 4, 2021 at 1:18pm 2 Comments

      Ballistol (from the words 'ballistic' and 'oleum') is a multi-purpose oil, first compounded in 1904 by Dr. Helmut Klever as a response to the German Imperial Army's request for a substance that could be used to clean and lubricate a soldier's firearm, as well as protect the wooden parts, and also protect his leather gear.  It was adopted by the German army in 1905, and remained in use until 1945.  So it's not quite Victorian, but does predate World War I by ten years.  And yes, it's…

Steampunk and the carbide lamp. (As a prop, and a genuinely useful item.)

Posted on March 31, 2021 at 9:00pm 3 Comments

      OK, first off, I will shamelessly point out that putting "Steampunk" as the first word of the title simply gets more attention.  Now on to the carbide lamp.

      I used to think these things had been around for ages, but it turns out that these lamps did not come into general use until the very last years of the 19th century.  (They were used primarily by miners, and cave explorers, as well…

Just something I found.

      OK, for some reason, I was considering entering a post about how (in the United States) The European Grand Tour evolved into See America due to the onset of WWI.  The Grand Tour was something that only the wealthy could indulge in.  But the war sent thousands or "regular, everyday Americans" to Europe who would otherwise never have gone there.  This reminded me of the song "How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm (After They've Seen Paree?)".  When I…
