Steampunk has many variants, but one of the classic backgrounds for the genre has been the sea, as first described by Mssr. Jules Verne in "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea". I have put together this small offshoot of the Steampunk Tribune to delve a bit deeper (so to speak) into this topic, and hopefully will be a repository of Nautical Steampunk information.
Additionally, aside from nautical Steampunk, Second Life fictional works, to better document the burgeoning Steampunk narratives in the Steamlands!
An alternative and unique rendering of Popeye, this time by the brilliant Mr. ~axlsalles, is what one might call a modern-ish version of the classic sailor, though I'm certain he has no problem with PRT (I'm supposing his rate would logically be a Bosunmate, so he'd get plenty of exercise!
