Hey all.  I'm working on a steampunk novel and have come to this question, how exactly would a Georgian era naval battle work if one side was airborne?  And I thought it would make a fun exercise for…Continue

I've only just been made away of the music of professor Elemental, but if 19th century British Empire Steampunk hip hop is wrong then by harry I don't want to know what's right.…Continue

"Well, if you're talking about the real world, an airship might make a somewhat effective bombing platform, though to do so from a safe range would mean extreme inaccuracy. The nice thing about bombs is that they can be almost all payload…"

"You're most welcome. The vibe is the game is awesome and, more importantly for me at least, the setting and atmosphere are spot on.  It's just a shame I don't have time to play it right now :("

"Airships are large targets and rather fragile. This has two implications. First, they cannot carry heavy ordinance themselves. The recoil would tear the airframe to pieces. Second, they would easily be damaged by enemy fire. One might assume that…"

"I've been reading a lot about airships lately. I'm not even sure that such a thing as an 'airship' as I understand the term would be even remotely possible. By that I mean you would  have a tough time wrangling fact and…"

Airship versus sail ship combat - how would it work?

Hey all.  I'm working on a steampunk novel and have come to this question, how exactly would a Georgian era naval battle work if one side was airborne?  And I thought it would make a fun exercise for people to flex their minds as well as ease my research ;)In your opinions how would it play out?  What factors would effect both sides?  What would be the likely outcome?  Obviously a lot of this depends on many variables, but let's just leave the absolutes out for now.The way I'm seeing it, the…See More

I am offering a special rate for all authors this weekend, with an added discount for all steampunk genres.I wish to incorporate more punk in my portfolio.  I have a good bit of fantasy, and a sprinkling of sci-fi, but I want more period and 'Punk' inspired pieces. Not just steampunk, but cyberpunk, dieselpunk, clockwork punk, and all of the sub-genres often grouped with steampunk.It's a dilemma because many…See More
