|#SteampunkVillains is, well, pretty self-explanatory. It's a group dedicated to the more sinister side of the Steampunk genre and subculture (if you are so inclined toward alliterations). |
There are plenty of places for the valiant, brass-adorned heroes who stand for all that is righteous and good, but what about the pirates, evil overlords, and other persons of marked nastiness? Aren't they just as magnificent? Without them, our heroes would be nothing more than dopey-looking everymen who go mad trying to stave off boredom.
+ We accept all forms of visual-art submissions: photographs, paintings, sketches, blueprints, costumes, handicrafts, and experiments in blasphemous science.
+ This group is considered to be "pan-universal," meaning that it is inclusive of every possible Steampunk universe, not just the ones pre-established in current media. Whether it is a universe of your own devising, or one that already exists, if it's antagonistic in nature, it belongs here!
+ The term "Steampunk" is very difficult to define. Everybody and their toad has a unique definition, so, for the sake of inclusiveness, this group shall begin with a very "broad" one that becomes more specific as time goes on.
The generally "agreed-upon" definition of Steampunk entails alternate pasts, futures, or universes in which highly-advanced technology is operated via archaic means. Note that this is a RIDICULOUSLY loose definition, and that the addenda and intricacies are heavily debated.
TL;DR: Steampunk is hard to define. If you don't agree with how the group defines it, consider it an act of villainous opposition.
