      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

Steam Powered Machine list...

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.

      OK, not very steampunk, but with the current conditions, this may at least be informative for some people.      Recently, the city council where I live has made the wearing of face masks in retail establishments mandatory.  No definition of what amounts to a 'face mask' was stipulated, so I've been wearing a black bandana so I look like an old west outlaw.   Heh.   But the whole mask business seems to be a big deal, and I've done a fair amount of research into masks as protection dating…See More

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. (The whole issue of replica money is clouded by the fact that some people (and maybe agencies) think this is the same as counterfeiting.  I don't see this as the case, but it limits what's available.)      I've scoured…See More

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:…
