Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proud to announce:


Steampunk Avatar Week
June 29 till July 5

It's time for all of us to acknowledge who we really are, steam engine loving Si-Fi people. It's time to turn our avatars steampunk!

You can post here to discuss it and show of your new avatars and ask for people to draw them for you.

It would be nice if everybody could wait till the actual week before using them though.

(Also, please be aware of xkcd-week in week 25)

ask for people to draw them for you.


I hereby request some kind of steam-driven Panda from some eminent avateur. Or perhaps a top hat, walking cane and monocle would suffice. I don't know...

How can I make my avatar more steampunkish? I could change the goggles, but apart from that I can't think of anything else.

DamnedIrishman, I accept your request. I will send the completed avatar to you later today.

No problem. After all, you were the first one to request an avatar. I just sent it to you by a private message.

I whole-heartedly support the idea of steampunk week and will show said support during the appropriate period!
That said, could anyone steampunk mein avatar? I'm not sure how you could steampunk an abjurer wizard; possibly with a Fantastical Protectional Sphere Generator?

I'll do this one too. However, I have to go somewhere in just a little while, so I probably won't get it done until tomorrow. While I am still willing to do avatars, I am but one man. All you other skill-havers get out here and join in the fight for Steampunk Week!

Clockwork tarrasque!!! It's from an WOTC updated adventure. Something Mountain.

Draw something unnecessarily complicated and extremely over-the-top. :smallsmile:

Do you know what Cyberpunk is?
If yes, take that except replace it with brass victorian steam technology.
If no...this picture gives you a general idea. (http://api.ning.com/files/h94kHYgPmI5J8SPgcPQryszy8udmWVFFWbw8pL9jo5i62mN4sn oyhf-6lTZ-5hzrxLcV0z64XULileA1vNDPIl4JrMbWgb4u/cyberpunk_symphony.jpg)

That's more cyber punk than steam punk

Steam punk is cool victorian looking gadgets with lots of cogs.

Yeah, I have no clue how to do this. So I'm going to ask someone else! I need an avatarist to make a Steampunk Rot. Please?

steampunk Trizap won't be hard- I'm already a mad scientist, I just need to replace the white labcoat and icefire with some victorian coat and a floating gear like I said before, perhaps I should add a monocle too?

no, no no, turn lightsaber into light-rapier or a light cutlass, you know one of those colonial era swords used by naval officers that look like rapiers or foils.

edit: sarnath'd. someone posted light-rapier right before me

Dogmantra

That, good sirs, is quite possibly the best idea ever.

Light Rapier. Awesome.

Icewalker

I'm hoping to get an avatar of my steampunk character, Kairos, engineer for The Archaeopteryx.

Whitish hair, pretty short, straight. Thick bronze goggles, one eye covered by a metal plate, the other with a darkened lens, with a gear on the side of the goggles.

The body and clothing is pretty open steampunkish, although I think it'd be best with a belt-sash across his chest covered in tools, and a screwdriver in hand as well as a few more along his waist. Vest, buttons, buckles, whatever, just general steampunk feel: bronze. Probably some oil smears, considering.

He's a little smaller than my current avi, since the hat extends him upwards.
Still, comments?

Edit:This means I'm free to do steampunk for others. Priority given to those who currently have one of my avatars.

Now how do you steampunk-inize a wizard robe? I might just change it into a dress.

Icewalker
2009-05-29, 09:50 PM
Yeah, wait for later to put up your avatars!

Actually, if I can get a good Kairos avatar, I think I'd use it long-term. Freaking awesome character.

No sir, you need to get into the language of the thing. Not light rapier, phlogistonated rapier. Or at least ionised rapier. Or what about Rapier phlogistonising device? :smalltongue:

Edit: Photic Rapier!!!

Also, missed a whole page. >.<

Labcoat. Can steam powered technology be 'sufficiently advanced'?

Xallace
2009-05-30, 10:51 AM
Labcoat. Can steam powered technology be 'sufficiently advanced'?

If not labcoat then modified frock coat. We're punk, right? Tear it up a little, wear it open. Ooh, and with belts of alchemical liquids underneath! Then of course we'll need a pair of goggles just above the brim of the hat.

Sufficiently advanced? As in, "indistinguishable from magic?" Steam-powered Tenser's Floating Disk. Ride it. Awesome.


Verily, it would be my pleasure if thoust could construct a dispenser in this specific location old chum.

Chaps, your assistance please! It is my impression that a gentleman of dubious affiliation is nullifying the workings of my multi-range high-velocity projectilating sentinel!

Whats the point? :smalltongue:
1) Its ridiculously awesome
2) people set their avatars to the specific week they're participating in up to a month before it starts ALL the time
3) I might use this after the week is over. :smallcool:

xkcd isnt the best webcomic in the world. Its pretty average to be honest. What it is is reliable and it does stand out on the internet as no one else really does a similar comic of any note i.e. one with appaling art.

So yeah, I think xkcd is fine. Its shining feature is reliablity.

Emperor Ing

This one... I can't do on my own. I'll have to request a Fullbladder with a Steampunk Arm and clockwork rocket boots sticking out of a Victorian Era fancy-style suit or something.

Or a Steampunked Shockwave. That'd be fun.

You want constructive criticism? Fine.
The comics I have read always lack a punchline. I try reading a comic, waiting for the inevitible punchline, only to be dissapointed by the comic ending, being too generalized about a person's reaction, or the ending feels strongly artificial.

Looks cool. If any artist has some spare time, I'd be grateful for a steampunk version of my avatar, which would include:
- Some vaguely mechanical contraption instead of the crossbow
- A huge wrench instead of the pickaxe
- An apron with lots of screwdrivers, wrenches and mechanical parts
- Googles
- Oil stains here and there
- Demented grin

Unless Bath has time to make a new one. Nonetheless, a Girl Genius avatar automatically wins when it comes to steampunk. I think so at least.

Goggles, gadgets and gears.
And look at Cassie's pictures of real life steampunk stuff. Pretty cliched stuff the detail is.
I wonder if Jibar'll be around for that week, he's steampunk mad. Didn't he buy/make/covet for himself a proper pair of steampunk goggles?
I'm sure he mentioned it somewhere.

Putting "in my opinion" or "I believe" in a statement doesn't make it immune from criticism. He could easily have said "I do not personally like it" rather than "It's an over-rated piece of crap", knowing full well there were fans of the webcomic on the board. While it's a valid opinion, the manner in which it was presented is a classic case of a) Thoughtless complaining or b) Trolling.

Emperor Ing

I would love, love, love to be a part of this. What a brilliant idea! Steampunk for the win. If any avatar artist would be so kind as to steampunk-ise my avi (or not; while lovely, it may be difficult to distinctively steampunk-ise and I'm sure Bisected8 wouldn't mind my having a completely unrelated one for a week, if that's easier) I would be so, so grateful. But if not, I'd still love to have a Steampunk-themed chat.
Incidentally, is there any chance we could have a different thread for the XKCD-yay/XKCD-nay conversation? It does seem to be invoking some rather impassioned responses that may be better played out in their own environment.

Putting "in my opinion" or "I believe" in a statement doesn't make it immune from criticism. He could easily have said "I do not personally like it" rather than "It's an over-rated piece of crap", knowing full well there were fans of the webcomic on the board. While it's a valid opinion, the manner in which it was presented is a classic case of a) Thoughtless complaining or b) Trolling.
God, people are so quick to yell "Troll!" nowadays when anybody presents a disagreeable opinion in anything other than "Well, sir, I don't mean to tread on your completely logical beliefs, but..."

Of course it's opinion when he says it's an over-rated piece of crap. He didn't bust out charts and graphs to prove it as scientific fact. Face it, you're overreacting to a harmless proclomation of his feelings on a subject as if it were a personal insult towards you, which makes you look like the troll.

You seem to have accepted this, but continue your argument, closing by accusing Bisected of trolling. Your behaviour seems to be deliberately antagonistic, and bordering on outright trolling yourself.

Randomizer's post could well be trolling. This is a board which Randomizer is fully aware is fond of xkcd, the upcoming avatar week being evidence of this. Randomizer then posted his opinion that is was a "colossally overrated piece of crap", which could be seen to be primarily to incite angry responses. That would be trolling.

Of course, whether it is trolling or not is for a moderator to decide, not us. And discussion of xkcd is off topic for this thread, so let's just stick to talking about the steampunk week.

That's possible as I'm not sure how steampunk crow-like clockwerk should look without redundant amount of cogwheels on it, I mean, it's supposed to fly somehow.....the wings are drawn as elbow blades on purpose though....

It's not the wings, it's well...everything. It seems too sleek to me.
And you don't have to have COG wheels, some good Steampunk accessories include:
A Furnace (keep in mind they aren't small)
Pipes
Whistles
Cog wheels (:smalltongue:)

You seem to have accepted this, but continue your argument, closing by accusing Bisected of trolling.

Contradictions in the opening and closing of my post aside, the point of the post was to say that it doesn't matter if Bisected relents that it's Randomizer's opinion and only his "presentation" was wrong, the fact that he blew things so out of porportion in the first place is the problem. Revealing that it's a valid opinion is a moot point.


Randomizer's post could well be trolling. This is a board which Randomizer is fully aware is fond of xkcd, the upcoming avatar week being evidence of this.
Speculation doesn't justify unwarranted action.


Randomizer then posted his opinion that is was a "colossally overrated piece of crap", which could be seen to be primarily to incite angry responses. That would be trolling.
No way, really? That's what trolling is?

Yeah, don't talk down to me. I know what Bisected's motivation for getting all bent out of shape was, but he still got bent out of shape.

Clothing can be anything steampunkish that is rather casual, perhaps a vest, plus a belt/sash across his chest covered in tools, and several additional screwdrivers around his waist and one in hand. Grease/oil stains likely as well.

<@lilValdar> that would probably be an unwise thing to say at a steampunk wedding, on account of your ladie's corset being pressurized sufficiently to drive 3 feet of titanium whalebone through you
<@lilValdar> and your would-be father in law is on an airship right then. . .and you dont know what else he has up there with him
<@lilValdar> (hint: it might be spiky)
<@lilValdar> (and launchable)
<@Zadown> almost everything is launchable once yer high enough
<@Zadown> as long as ye want to launch it downwards
. . .
<@Tzimfemme> would it have those little flaring bits over the hips loaded with poison darts?
<@lilValdar> a corset _is_ a weapon, all you need is to take a deep breath xD
<@Zadown> I always thought it was the eyes that shot darts - looks-that-can-kill and all that ;)
<@Yar-No> yeah corsets are weapons of mass distraction!
<@Yar-No> The heaving bust of a comely lady, with silk white skin and..
<@Tzimfemme> . . .an atomizer loaded with blindness powder tucked into the cleavage, activated by attempting to take a deep breath?

Are we supposed to post our Steampunk avatars made for us by other people here to show everyone beforehand? 'Cause, that kinda makes sense, as it's free bragging/advertising.

So, um, I present a Djinn in Tonic production.

Since this seems common enough, I'm going to assume there have been several of these 'weeks' and ask "Has there ever been a Dilbert Week?"

I would suspect there was what with all the proud geeks and nerds on this forum. I'd actually be surprised if there wasn't.

(it's my steampunk gun, fully-functional light gun, works with a PC, for videogames, made by me, owned by me, no credit to anyone else but moi)

As my avatar?

Or must it be drawn?

I was told to post here for a request as well.


If anyone has time I wouldn't mind a steampunk avatar of Mercedes(giatar in my spoiler). I was told she would probably look the best done that way. Anyway, it would be my first player-made avatar and not just a giatar that I cheat with. :smallsmile:

I don't think the chainsaw dagger's teeth came out quite the way I wanted them to.

also, that thing came out freaking massive. Does anybody remember the max size for avvies on these boards?

I was thinking of my necromancer standing in the center with a steam-driven chainsaw scythe and on either side of him, black-robed skeletons with steampunk chainguns and green targeting monocles.

So, I haven't been keeping up with any of the topics. Are we doing anything special for Steampunk week aside from our avatars? I was going to try and brew up a good amount of steampunk materials for the 4E folks (don't look at me like that, there's plenty of steampunk 3E; I own 3 books of it!), maybe hold a contest or something... I dunno, was anything in the works?

I'm thinking a skittle-producing steampunk throne + a victorian style suit with monocle and top hat, maybe even an pocketwatch although I doubt it would be noticeable.

Please? *puppy dog eyes*

Oh, the majesty of the steam-skarn! It.. its beautiful yet terrifying!

Make the cheese bronze? I think it's less an issue of 'what can I do more' and more of a 'I don't need to change much' kind of deal.

Steampunk has always been about needless accessories. You could add more gears, make the cheese metal/bronze, add bolts to the cheese, have a cheesework robot, etc.
