Steampunk Challenge!
« on: October 28, 2008, 10:08:30 AM »
The thread title says it all.

What do we all think of doing a Steam Punk Quest? (Ouroboros suggestion)

If there are no objections, welcome to the New Quest!

The Quest will commence on Monday. Don your goggles.

Any sort of steampunk at all, thaumatech included, or just old-fashioned steamtech?

I would simply like to say that, upon first reading the title of this topic, I thought it said 'Swamppunk.'

I don't know what that is, but I am in full favor it (Steampunk works too, though).

Ok, its now official. Nice banner, Strolen!

"Any sort of steampunk at all, thaumatech included, or just old-fashioned steamtech?" - CM

Yeah, I'd say any sort of steampunk. It is up to the authors, as usual, as to how they want to interpret the challenege.

mmm... Swamppunk... Nothing like punks speaking in indecipherable creole
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

As if the younger generation needs to speak in creole to be indecipherable...

NOW you tell me :P  I'd have pulled out a few more stops if I knew that!


Ah well.

Okay folks, this was an excellent choice for contest. What do we do for an encore?

Hang on, not yet. Way too much collating & polling, to do still for this one. Another month or so of voting, I would imagine. (Heck, another month or so of reading! :p)

But if you must. Never to early to brainstrom I  guess :)

Ok, I guess we can go one of two ways. I can make a poll of Quest sub "finalists", that have a 4.5 or higher vote total, or we can do the "favorite 3" approach, assigning point values like we did for the last Quest.

I'd say we combine both, since there's so many 4.5-ers. 18, to be exact.
