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.

Steampunk props: #1 - Replica coins and currency

      I'm going to try and recreate this series all over again.      I like to have "period" (like there's an actual Steampunk period, right?) items around to inspire me, and to "use" if I ever go to any kind of steampunk event.  Replica money is as good a place as any to start.

Steampunk, and Musical Machines

      [This was originally a post in a group I had created on the old Steampunk Empire website, dedicated to classical music, and its relationship to steampunk.]-      Machines used to play music are nothing new.  Carillons have been automated since at least the 17th century, and small music boxes have been around since at least the 18th.  By the 19th century, musical machines of many types began to be produced.  One of the most famous was the Panharmonicon, invented by Johann Nepomuk Maelzel. …See More

Regnad and the Gunfighters, a CR&A gaiden.

Posted on April 25, 2020 at 5:00am 1 Comment

      Alright, I've decided to post a CR&A story.  This is a short one, but it's one I've wanted to type up for some time, and now that I have, I'd like to let others read it.  It's in my script format, and everything in it belongs to me!  (Sorry, but I feel I need to say that.)  Anyways -

Steampunk Pastimes: Faro, a nearly forgotten card game.

Posted on April 24, 2020 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

      By the standards of movies, and television, one is lead to believe that the most popular card based gambling game in the old west was poker.  This is NOT true!  It was Faro. (Or Pharo, or Pharaoh.)

      Faro is a game of chance played with our "normal" 52 card deck, in what is now called "poker" size. (In the days of the Wild West, they were just as likely to be called a Faro Deck.)  Faro requires a "layout" that looks like this:…

Steampunk props: #2 - Replica gaming (gambling) items.

Posted on April 24, 2020 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

      OK, once one has decent replica coins and currency, one needs a way to spend it, right?  So what better way than to plunk it down on the poker, faro, blackjack, or craps table!  (At least in the Wild Steampunk West, where my CR&A character lives.)  So that means playing cards, and dice.  Cards first -

      There are pretty much two options - the Highlanders 1864 deck…
