More Art from Iron Grip: Marauders

Ah, so beautiful! I really cannot wait until Iron Grip: Marauders finally goes online. The artwork alone: Massive Steampunk warmachines! Epic! My only regret (well, not really regret) is, I will not really have time to play. If all goes well, I will be a father six weeks from today …

Well, what can I say, another issue of the famed Gatehouse Gazette is out: This time, it is all about the good things in life and the Joie de Vivre, only fitting for the summer issue of the Gazette. Featuring most brilliant articles by the renowned Steampunk and Dieselpunk journalists …

Thoughts on the FIFA World Cup

Obviously, even Steampunks watch football. Especially a classic match like England vs. Germany. By now I guess you know how that one ended and this is also as far as this article goes concerning football and the FIFA World Cup. I want to keep this blog as far away from …

How in Dagon's name could I miss that?

A Cthulhu Steampunk crossover by Chaosium! And it has been out for quite some time now and I missed it up until five minutes ago! How could this have happened? I guess it could only have been because Great Cthulhu dominates my dreams and interferes with my perception. Hang on, …

When Victorian Occultism meets Evolution

Warning! Extreme weirdness ahead! I was just thinking… In a Steampunk world, you have advanced sience mixed with Victorian elements. And I was just listening to Tom Slatter’s excellent “Lines overheard at a Séance”. So this thought popped into my mind, it is just a thought-experiment, really… Let’s say you’ve …

Teslapunk

Who would have thought it… Another facet of Steampunk is making moves to assert itself. Next to Dieselpunk, there now stands Teslapunk. Obviously, it is inspired by the technology invented by Nikola Tesla (Никола Тесла) and takes his ideas into the future. Based on the idea of Teslapunk, a short-film named …
