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,
