What IS Steampunk?

Over the past decade, Steampunk has branched, evolved, moved and spiralled, and to try and define it neatly would be a fruitless job, I leave that to people more eloquent and more knowledgeable of such matters.

For me, Steampunk is using the late 19, early 20th century aesthetics, superimposed over a more advanced technological framework. Like I wrote in the 'Welcome' post, the Victorian Era meets the Atomic Age.

Enter the NighGems. My gimmick. My McGuffin. An alien crystal, able to store vast amounts of energy (thermal, nuclear, electrical, who knows?)

Between that and the Passages, Thyra has one or two stories to tell....
