Steampunks always seem to have goggles, so it seemed a fairly logical progression.

They're much more able to fit into any steampunk environment than some of my Kuramen-specific materials, too. Go to Comment

Definitely standard gear. Goggles are among one of the defining images of the entire steampunk movement, so it seemed right to have them included in this quest in some form or another. Go to Comment

Most definitely.

No stunt of mad science is complete without a pair of goggles. Go to Comment

Steampunk's trademark is the goggles, really. This is a logical progression for thaumatechnology. Really, Ouro's commentary on the aether in his sub about how Locastus's power sigils work is what inspired this the most. Go to Comment

Glad to hear it. It was another one of my largely spur-of-the-moment ideas. Go to Comment

The battery can also serve as a drain on the funds of the owner, if they rely on them too much. Go to Comment

I try to respond, yes. It helps encourage activity, and the Citadel could use the stimulation to action at times. Not that I can really complain, when I'm prone to vanishing for months on end without warning.

Sometimes it is the little things, like goggles that make a setting, moreso than the grand and impressive things. Well done. Go to Comment

Echo likes. Goggles fit steampunk like horned helms fit dwarves and long leather coats fit vampires. Good stuff, solid post, nothing to object. I like the battery part: makes for a good tale when you're on the clock! 4,5 from me. Go to Comment

Standard thaumatech gear. This needs to go into the Tools of the Trade freetext. I'm also fairly sure there's a scroll or codex for the same sort of thing, but I can't find it for the life of me. I'm sure Moon will know exactly where, and most likely have the number memorized for ease of insertion. Go to Comment

It can be the manifestation of three things, only one of which is bad.

Post whoring, for pure xp and sub recognition, is the bad, and should be discouraged with brutal mockery. However, it could also be simply a major enthusiasm for the flow of ideas, as well as the simply outpouring of ideas in an attempt to stimulate more, both amongst the author and the commenters. As I said, only the first is bad. The second two are commendable. Go to Comment

It's definitely a worse-than-death sentence; not only what you mention, but rumors likely exist about how the poor sod's mind sin't really frozen, but trapped, forced to watch the world constantly but totally unable to do anything. It's like the stories of immortality gone awry, in that respect.

And you have part of the idea down pat; the skeleton makes for an excellent framework. Skeletons also tend to creep out people, particularly ones walking around, if the world's undead are proscribed (Kuramen only having the Hollow Ones as true undead, for example). And hey, they can be enhanced if you really want... Thaumatechnology is prone to cramming extra runes, glyphs, and scripts into too small a space, after all.

I'm glad you like it! Go to Comment
