Get to the airships!
Long lace dresses. Top hats of magnificent design. Tiny metal bugs, with a hum from their microscopic steam engines. Cyborgs with a mechanized arm and leg, an eye ball that can see through walls and detectives with powder kits that are a magic-like kind of science. And the gadgets! Oh, the gadgets! Mechanical whirling devices made of bronze and copper, that can clean, fly, fix other gadgets, and be your best friend! (We get really excited about the gadgets.)
But what about when you need to defend yourself in a duel? Or against air-pirates? What is an average steampunk-tinkerer to do? Take out your Steam Punk Space Gun and kick some butt! Defend your airship with this amazing gun and take aim at the invading horde. You might lose an arm or leg in the battle but we hear the cybernetic options are very agreeable.
