Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Grey Jan 24. 2 Replies

I've been intrigued by Patreon for a while now.  An ongoing crowdfunding site which rewards creators for their output?  What's not to like?  So last November I decided to start my own journey on…Continue

Airship versus sail ship combat - how would it work?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Raymond Witte Apr 24, 2013. 3 Replies

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 been intrigued by Patreon for a while now.  An ongoing crowdfunding site which rewards creators for their output?  What's not to like?  So last November I decided to start my own journey on it and began to serialise my novel Brood Parasites. We're a way in now and I'm happy with the progress.  If you have a minute please feel free to go have a read and let me know what you think. It's free to read for the HTML text, and I've…See More

Wolsung - Steampunk tabletop game

Some of you guys might find this interesting.  Micro Art Studios procedude a tabletop wargame in a steampunk world called Wolsung.  I play a fair amount of games, and this is one of the more fun, easier to understand rulesets, and the models are full of character:http://www.wolsung-ssg.com/They're also running a kickstarter at the moment to expand the range, which is a cheap way in for anyone who doesn't have the gaming staples at hand to play:…See More

Raymond Witte replied to Michael Grey's discussion Airship versus sail ship combat - how would it work?
"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…"

Michael Grey replied to Michael Grey's discussion Bioshock Infinite
"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 :("

dvsduncan replied to Michael Grey's discussion Airship versus sail ship combat - how would it work?
"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…"

dave bartram replied to Michael Grey's discussion 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

The Collaborative Writing Challenge (CWC) coordinates novels that are written together by dozens of authors.

Many writers…See More
