A Dashed Inconvenience – Steampunk short film

| 31. Dezember 2012

Karma can be a nasty thing, as one Steampunk adventurer is about to find out in this witty little film: And with this, I wish you all an excellent and most splendid 2013!

Half a Review – Black Sun Reich

| 31. Dezember 2012

When I was invited to review Black Sun Reich I was most intrigued. Occultist Nazis scouting pre-Columbian ruins for ancient treasures sounded like fun in best Indiana Jones style. Especially since it was unapologetic Pulp/Dieselpunk. The first thing that struck me was the Newsreel Intro, nicely done. The world  Black Sun Reich is set in […]

New Year Honours List of 2013 – Nerd and Geek Win!

| 29. Dezember 2012

The 2013 New Year Honour List of Queen Elisabeth II is a great one for nerds and geeks everywhere! Among the laureates are: Professor Higgs, who predicted the boson which bears his name  is now a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour and (and this is even more splendid): Ian Livingstone, yes, Ian “Fighting […]

Steampunk Spider Band performs Electrorachnid Soda Pop

| 28. Dezember 2012

Truth be told, the aesthetics in this video are not Steampunk as far as I am concerned. I simply came across this little clip while browsing Youtube for stuff. The concept behind it is too sweet not to share. I mean, a band of orb weavers playing soda pop. It makes for a creepy-crawly Aaaaaawwwhhh!-moment.

Merry Christmas, Yule, Saturnalia and so on, everybody!

| 24. Dezember 2012

Another year has almost passed, it was quite an eventful one here at The Traveler’s Steampunk Blog. We got the European Steampunk Convention going, I published a book with Alex from Clockworker and the two of us got Pip Ballentine and Tee Morris to give us an interview for our respective podcasts. Speaking of which, […]

Doctor Who Follow-Up

| 23. Dezember 2012

As I stated in my previous post, Doctor Who has been hard at work saving Earth from destruction on December 21st. Now, he made an official statement concerning the events, and as it turns out, it was more bizarre than I could have imagined.

The Doctor Saved Us!

| 21. Dezember 2012

Just saying… What a lame Apocalypse that was (again).

Non-Euclidean Æthercast 11: Maya, Doomsday, and Cthulhu

| 19. Dezember 2012

Today’s episode of the Non-Euclidean Æthercast is all about the end of the world as prophesied by the Maya. I am actually broadcasting from Neu Schwabenland, waiting to board my Reichsflugscheiben liner to Cydonia on Mars where my family and me will settle after Earth has been distroyed. There is one flaw in this: The Maya said […]

Christmas with a Dalek

| 18. Dezember 2012

My good friend Captain Serenus of Clockworker has brought my attention to this wonderful piece of music, please enjoy! You all know what to do next time you meet a Dalek. Get close enough to hug him before it zaps you, give it a good long hug, wish “Merry Christmas” and do other nice things […]

Kickstarter: Leviathans Online: Monsters In The Sky

| 16. Dezember 2012

Following up on my post on November 23rd, the Kickstarter campaign for Leviathans Online is now up! I have not been so excited about an upcoming online game ever since Diablo II and if you look it up, this means it has been over a decade since I have been that excited. So please, everybody, […]
