I want some SP with rivets, as they use to say of SF. #steampunkchat 2 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @artificer13 LOL now that could be. Too early in day for that soln here in Aus. Shame #steampunkchat 2 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh RT @mattdelman: The blending of Steampunk and Fantasy is something that should be done more often. #steampunkchat 2 hours ago E. Phemera ephemera07 E.

Bows to your brilliance #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman The blending of Steampunk and Fantasy is something that should be done more often. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @MarshallGabe It sounds like it would be seriously epic. Which I guess is the point. 😉 #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ RT +1 @mattdelman @jhameia *dies* @Jenny_Schwartz#steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh I will mention again The Prestige as a great movie blending Science and Magic. And David Bowie as Tesla. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga On the water theme…. “Come one, Come all to the greatest show on Atlantis!” #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz RT @jmarshallca: “In a world of new technology, man shall rise as the new gods.” #SteampunkHighFantasy #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh A’ight, people, 2 minutes until we finish this weekend’s chat!

Not clockwork, alas. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jake von Slatt vonslatt Jake von Slatt By ” new steampunk” I mean not distopian Jeter/Gibson/Sterling stuff. Optimistic airship steampunk. #Steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Jenny_Schwartz I’m sorry, all I can think of is porn right now, with a title that has to have “With Steam”. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @Siri_Paulson Oh lord! Guess I do have the setting. Just need to actually write in it. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @DelilahSDawson Probably some of both. Lots of idea-churn@jhameia #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Von Malcolm VonMalcolm Von Malcolm @ @CountessaLenora -And Airships trying to take him down. PS Steampunk newbie here, extremely so! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora And if someone pissed you off, you’d sic your dragon on them to burn their whiskers off! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @vonslatt LOL “new steampunk” You mean we lost our shininess already?! Say it ain’t so! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @MarshallGabe DO IT! DO IT! That sounds amazing. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @Jenny_Schwartz Just so long as I can shoot lightening out of my hands at people, I’m good. @MarshallGabe @jhameia #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @DelilahSDawson Just came up in the course of the conversation =) We bring the cool in here. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @jhameia Was written by Twain, so right time frame for it. Definitely steam engine influence. Very well could. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Delilah S. Dawson DelilahSDawson Delilah S. Dawson @ @jhameia @artificer13 Are these things folks are currently working on, or just brainstorming? Love it all! #steampunkchat #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jake von Slatt vonslatt Jake von Slatt Oh! Bob Shaw’s The Ragged Astronauts. It’s almost not fantasy, the science is so good. It’s “new steampunk.”#Steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @AirshipEmbassy I want a little one that sits on my shoulder like a parrot…yes…airship pirate with clockwork dragon #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @MarshallGabe I’d forgotten about Connecticut Yankee… might that even count as proto-steampunk, ala Verne/Wells? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz Love it! RT @MarshallGabe: @jhameia ”Some call magic a form of science. Now the two must learn to work together,” #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @jhameia ”Some call magic a form of science. Now the two must learn to work together,” #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @DelilahSDawson A whole hour of awesome, alas. Covered LOTR, Atlantis, Little Mermaid, and King Arthur. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @DelilahSDawson 52 min. worth. 😉 #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil Steampunk dragons would be a lot of fun #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @Siri_Paulson @mattdelman Variance on Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court? Brings the Steam Engine? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Delilah S. Dawson DelilahSDawson Delilah S. Dawson Oh, man! So deep in revisions I almost forgot about #steampunkchat! What did I miss? 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh If YOU were to write a steampunk high fantasy story, what would its one-line blurb be? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @MarshallGabe That could be interesting. Merlin as a quirky scientist/inventor #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @VonMalcolm I’m all for that. King Kong – giant mechanical/clockwork machine with a loose gear/screw – goes beserk. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @MarshallGabe Ooooh. Love Arthurian mythos. Merlin of course is the time traveler/scientist… #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz Terrifying! Would probably work really well! RT @VonMalcolm:@Jenny_Schwartz How about a Steampunk King Kong? #SteamPunkChat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Siri_Paulson Even better! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Von Malcolm VonMalcolm Von Malcolm @ @Jenny_Schwartz How about a Steampunk King Kong? #SteamPunkChat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @Siri_Paulson @jhameia Havemercy blurb sounds full on. Lots happening. Good find. Thx! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @jhameia @Jenny_Schwartz Reading the flap — not clockwork, they’re mechanical dragons fueled by magic. 😀 #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh King Arthur myths turned into Steampunk? Set in Victorian time frame? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @artificer13 @MarshallGabe I hadn’t heard one off India…hmm… #steampunkchat Learning interesting stuff today!#atlantis 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @Jenny_Schwartz @jhameia Havemercy, all one word. By Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Siri_Paulson There’s a clockwork/magic wooden dragon in “The Water Weapon” in THE DRAGON AND THE STARS anthology, too #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @MarshallGabe and one off the coast of India as well.@Jenny_Schwartz #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @CountessaLenora Exactly. Many different locations given for Atlantis #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Siri_Paulson Oooh! Haven’t heard of that! Who’s it by? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @Siri_Paulson @jhameia I hadn’t heard of Have Mercy. Clockwork dragons sound fab! #steampunkchat off to look 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @jhameia Must mention Havemercy (clockwork dragons), which is on my TBR shelf. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora Obvious fantasy steampunk translation is obvious! 😀 #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ .@vonslatt hmm. Not what I was thinking of, but certainly worth investigating further. Thanks. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @MarshallGabe Even my home island of Malta has been said to be all that’s left of Atlantis. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia Pinocchio – automaton. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @Jenny_Schwartz Many Atlantis like myths out there. One off coast of Japan, one in Caribbean, one in North Atlantic now. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jake von Slatt vonslatt Jake von Slatt @ .@artificer13 Larry Niven’s “Manna” series perhaps? #Steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @Jenny_Schwartz dueling sub-oceanic societies? How could you go wrong? Atlantis’s tec vs R’lyeh’s magic @MarshallGabe #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @CountessaLenora To me most Cryptids don’t need steampunking. They would fit in anyway #seamonsters #chupathingies #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia That was my other thought….love it! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh What about fantasy creatures? How would you steampunk ‘em?#steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @artificer13 @MarshallGabe Fascinating…maybe rival Atlantises? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora Or Cthulhu is the witch who transforms her!#steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh Live in the desert so for me Ocean is like Snow, see it once a year if I’m lucky. So don’t relate to it as much for setting #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @artificer13 ”Don’t piss off the old lady in the corner of the village”… #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia Oh there you go…. Ariel is turned mad by Cthulhu… #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @Jenny_Schwartz Atlantis or R’lyeh? 😉 explorer9360.xanga.com/714302475/anci…google.com/imgres?q=sunke… @MarshallGabe #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Miss S srolutola Miss S RT @Siri_Paulson: Agreed! RT @MarshallGabe:@Jenny_Schwartz The Ocean is a vastly under utilized #steampunk setting #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Jenny_Schwartz I love how you immediately linked “Atlantis” with “dystopia”… THAT’s definitely underthought! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh RT @Jenny_Schwartz: & Atlantis devastation add dystopian touch to steampunk. I do like this idea… #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @MarshallGabe The Ocean is a vastly under utilized everything… and that’s where our Lovecraftian monsters come in! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia And that would be why I like the Grimm stories better. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson Agreed! RT @MarshallGabe: @Jenny_Schwartz The Ocean is a vastly under utilized #steampunk setting #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @CountessaLenora and warnings to kids. “Stay out of the woods” “avoid the water” etc. @jhameia #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @MarshallGabe Agreed. & Atlantis devastation add dystopian touch to steampunk #steampunkchat I do like this idea… 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora Depends on which ones: the Grimm ones were entertainment; Christian Andersen’s stuff DEFINITE morality plays #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @MarshallGabe It most definitely is. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer Drawing a blank, can anyone name the book series where technology is killing magic? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @Jenny_Schwartz The Ocean is a vastly under utilized #steampunk setting #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia Many of the original fairy tales were moral stories. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @AirshipEmbassy @jhameia Yes, along those lines. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil @ @jhameia @MarshallGabe mer-people are just humans with mechanical fish-like bodies, hence the sightings and myths? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @mattdelman Yes. Gives up her life so her prince can live with the woman he loves; becomes a drifting spirit. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia You could easily make the Prince a Nemo character.#steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @jhameia Atlantis, with personalized subs? Alchemy allows for air breathing, legs being a metaphor? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @CountessaLenora agreed. Andersen’s version won’t rot your teeth. Might make you cry a bit though. @mattdelman #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @CountessaLenora Sadly about all I can recall is that Ariel turns into foam in the end? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia But in this one it would be more fun to have her part Kraken. Only part Disney got right. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Joyce Chng (JDamask) jolantru Joyce Chng (JDamask) #steampunkchat Oysters, Pearls and Magic is fantasyish with steampunkish silverfish – flying ships magically powered. 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @MarshallGabe THAT’s an idea! The merpeople as underwater dwellers in submarine cities, then? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @MarshallGabe The prince as explorer (in pith helmet) – oh yes. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @mattdelman @vonslatt Magic and Tech don’t get along in that world. Actively interfere. Makes sense using older tech #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @AirshipEmbassy Excellent automaton dwarves….and she built them! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @mattdelman Yeah, it’s incredible how backwards the Wizarding Society is @vonslatt #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil @ @CountessaLenora Hans Christian Andersen Little Kraken! love it #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @CountessaLenora @jhameia Love it! Waving undersea trees — totally mad science. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @jhameia Submarine would be involved more than likely with the Little Mermaid #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora Who, the witch? In the original, she was also a mermaid, just like everybody else. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @mattdelman Oh Matt. You really need to reacquaint yourself with the story. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil @ @jhameia @CountessaLenora Snow White and the Mechanical Dwarves #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @vonslatt I would actually buy that, given it’s obvsly an escapist fantasy from modernity as we know it. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @vonslatt Interesting and understandable perspective. They do have a very Victorian society in the Wizarding World. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh #steampunkchat Friend postedinsidemovies.ew.com/2011/12/02/jer… which could very easily go Steampunk 3 hours ago john_zeleznik john_zeleznik john_zeleznik Oh, what about DM Cornish’s Monster Blood Tattoo? Alchemically based steampunk. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia And she’s part Kraken for sure. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @mattdelman Fairly easy to find; Google “Hans Christian Andersen Little Mermaid” #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Joyce Chng (JDamask) jolantru Joyce Chng (JDamask) #steampunkchat Dragonero is a graphic novel with steampunk elements. And epic fantasy. 3 hours ago Jake von Slatt vonslatt Jake von Slatt @ @jhameia I’ve always maintained that Harry Potter _is_ a steampunk fantasy. Lots of 19th century fashion and mores. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @CountessaLenora Ho! A worthy challenge!! The witch as alchemist, obviously. Mechanical legs? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @CountessaLenora I barely recall the non-Disney version, sadly #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @john_zeleznik Not to go back to Tolkien but his works have influenced so much fantasy that it often pulls from his works #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil @ @MarshallGabe There’s an anothology project for a steampunk’d Grimms fairytales already out, that would be pretty good! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Siri Paulson Siri_Paulson Siri Paulson @ @jhameia Now THAT’s interesting! Of course it came out of cyberpunk — they invented it. D’oh! #steampunkchat 3 hours ago john_zeleznik john_zeleznik john_zeleznik For my book this summer, the riverboats used magically infused power sources. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh RT @CountessaLenora: Ok, heres a challenge – how would you steampunk Little Mermaid – the original NOT Disney. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia Oh definitely. The Grimm tales would be perfect. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @MarshallGabe I think @steamscholar would say, YES, of course. (He’s not here so, poor Mike, I shall have to speak for him) #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga Ok, here’s a challenge – how would you steampunk Little Mermaid – the original NOT Disney. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @MarshallGabe Agreed. Look at the movie Brother Grimm with Matt Damon … that can be early Steampunk easily #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh RT @MarshallGabe: Arguable that anything out of Grimms Fairytales could be Steampunked? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @jhameia It’s a fair comparison. OVER industr. to the point where people no longer work & everything’s the same@MarshallGabe #steampunkchat 3 hours ago john_zeleznik john_zeleznik john_zeleznik Why traditional dwarf societies weren’t more industriously progressive is sorely under explored. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @AirshipEmbassy Arguable that anything out of Grimms’ Fairytales could be Steampunked? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @artificer13 Especially keeping in mind Gibson & Sterling’s DIFFERENCE ENGINE came out of cyberpunk. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @john_zeleznik @jhameia Quests also are a quick way to craft an external conflict. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago john_zeleznik john_zeleznik john_zeleznik There is a natural progression that’s explainable within both genres conventions. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @artificer13 I wonder if the same could be said for some steampunk works: critique of modernity and such@MarshallGabe #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Kevin Steil AirshipEmbassy Kevin Steil So, back to fantasy stories which could be steampunk’d…. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @jhameia FFVI and FFIX were certainly the most steampunk. Tech and magic everywhere. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Lee Ann Farruga CountessaLenora Lee Ann Farruga @ @jhameia I think either of those could be your quest.#steampunkchat 3 hours ago The Artificer artificer13 The Artificer @ @mattdelman It’s actually in Tolkien’s notes/diaries. He was set against encroaching urbanization @MarshallGabe #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @john_zeleznik Depends on which fantasy, or whatever slice of the genre, really. Quests give the protag something to do. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz @ @john_zeleznik That’s right, ruin my argument with facts. *grumble, grumble* 😉 #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman Tolkien and whether it’s a commentary on the destruction of pastoral England is not, however, the topic for this chat. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @Jenny_Schwartz What, like, go get the treasure of something or another, or go save the world and love interest? #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @mattdelman He did. To say he wasn’t influenced by WW1 and his beloved English Countryside would be negligent though. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago john_zeleznik john_zeleznik john_zeleznik @ @Jenny_Schwartz I think fantasy is moving away from quests. Look at Martin, Abercrombie, etc. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jaymee Goh jhameia Jaymee Goh @ @srolutola That’s an idea! FFVI and FFIX, I think, might classify that way. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Jenny Schwartz Jenny_Schwartz Jenny Schwartz Thinking of Boneshaker, I answer my own question. Quest + Stmpk works #steampunkchat 3 hours ago M. Gabriel Colbaugh MarshallGabe M. Gabriel Colbaugh @ @srolutola 4, 5, 6, 7, 9. I was just about to mention those. #steampunkchat 3 hours ago Matthew Delman mattdelman Matthew Delman @ @MarshallGabe See, I don’t think Tolkien meant it that way at all.
