"Yeah it does seem like a pretty stupid critisim for something which largely doesnt even take place in reality. If it did, it would be called history not science fiction."

Keeping it Punk

Ive heard members talk about some Streampunk novels/stories which tend to downplay the "Punk" I took this to heart and tried to find a way to keep the "punk" in 'steampunk". I thought Id give at least one character a different way of talking, a few special words or expressions, as a way to maintain the punk element. Most of these are existing words/phrases. Some of the meanings have been changed, while others a combinations of several terms.Some are kinda silly, but I need it for what I have in…See More
