Brainstorming

After a very long weekend of doing what actors do...eh...er...not waiting tables or procrastinating...I mean to say is ACTING...is what actors do best...I have had some time to think about things, and nothing...and just let my mind wander.

In light of the horrific blemish to my arm this weekend, violence seemed to spring to mind. Topic of conversation perhaps? - Steampunk Tanks and Militia Equipment.

One of our members, Adam, is a militia based character - he's the guy with the cannons on his shoulders.

There of course are sky pirates everywhere, and rogues etc...in our steampunks worlds, but where are the "good guys" - the LAW?? Clearly even in a post apocolyptic (or post-POST apocolyptic) society, there have to be two sides to every coin. I have seen only a handful of steampunk militia - in the sense that we know it today (a group of fighters with a clear leader sporting their colors and weapons) who are on the side of good and not rag tag pirates and the like. What kinds of weapons would they have? shoulder cannons?? and what kinds of vehicles? They would need something faster than airships and possibly smaller to surround...steampunk tanks? steampunk like speed boats? steampunk gliders?


Just had it pass through this crazy brain of mine...any thoughts world??

Good night for now,
Savannah Midnight

  1. Hello. I am southern steampunk and I am one of the "good guys" ... a bounty hunter and/or "justice for hire" specialist from the future and registered with the Inter Galactic Council (IGC) as a Bounty And Detention Agent, Special Status (i.e., B.A.D.A.S.S.). My name is Elad Remennek. I may not look like much, but, trust me, you don't want to find yourself on my "to do" list, if you know what I mean.

  3. Well, S.Midnight, you probably won't have anything to worry about on my acccount, but pardon me keeping an eye on you in the meantime all the same just in case some connection betwixt yourself and the criminal element or other mischief makers engages my awareness. In my line of work one can not be overly careful nor leave anything to chance, as I'm sure you may surmise.
