Journal Entry: Mon Sep 17, 2012, 7:52 AM
It's been an amazing challenge! Kudos to all of the creative, wonderful artists and writers who bravely put forth their creations and let their imaginations be tested in the boiling waters of fandom. From the steamy throes of competition have arisen our champions for this round. But let it not be said that these works won single-handedly without dispute. For there were many grand and amazing entries submitted. In the end, it's the members who benefit from the thrilling and beautiful creations by our competitors.

So a big applause for everyone who contributed!

The train pulled into the station at night, its black iron body miles long and lit with evenly burning yellow lamps. The rods that turned the wheels slowed as men stood up from their hunch over the piles and dunes of coal and wiped their brows with gloved hands, shedding dark coal dust. The engineer slotted his last lever into place and the guards slipped out, human and turian and batarian in the uniforms of Puragatory, to see what land they had found this time.

"He shouldn’t be here."   Merrill shook her bloody hands in Cullen's direction.  "Why is he here?"  Amber noticed there were broken shards of the glass in her hand.  No. not glass.  That damn mirror.
"Merrill I told you let this obssession be.  Now, look what has happen.  It Didn’t bring Tamlen back."   Isabela still caused all sorts of trouble even though she was gone. She was part of the reason they were in this mess. She must have told Merrill  not to listen to her when it came to the mirror.

Game: Baldurs Gate 1
Characters/pairing: Some of the Badlurs Gate 1 Cast and my own OC Paige.
Disclaimer: The characters and Nashkel belong to Bioware, Paige is mine :)
Why did she always seem to attract the weirdos? Paige thought to herself as she stood on Nashkel's main thoroughfare, boots clicking on the cobbles, hand reassuringly stroking her clockwork pistol. Due to a mix of principles, laziness, irrational fears and extreme levels of pessimism, she'd entered the town without her party, Jaheira's words about how factories were sinful following her. She couldn't even have brought Imoen, because she really wasn't in the mood to explain to the guards why Imoen's previously empty pack was suddenly bulging.
Problem was, as she'd left the store, she'd walked into some-one. And that some-one was being very insistent...

Note: Winners, you will get a Note in the next few days regarding delivery of your prize. Congratulations on the win!


It is a time of great excitement in the world. Science has made astounding breakthroughs in the fields of medicine, steam technology, and mechanics. Explorers this very moment are embarking upon magnificent adventures, and charting grand new courses of human history as they discover new life and new cultures across the globe.

Into this alternate history world of steampunk, where the dominant technology is steam and mechanical-powered devices, we challenge our members: recreate a BioWare game in a steampunk setting!


What is Steampunk?



Steampunk is a stylistic aesthetic, a fictional universe, an alternate history, and a subcategory of science fiction. It’s really a lot of things, and a basic version boils down to this: if the world had developed along the lines of steam technology and mechanical devices instead of electricity, what would an advanced steam technology universe look like? Most steampunk creations take for inspiration the Victorian period of British history, which coincides with the first major modern day industrialization period. References for steampunk works can be found through searches all across the web as well as on deviantArt itself.

Art


For Art, we will be looking for redesigned versions of the characters, vehicles, animals, monsters, or settings to fit inside a steampunk environment.

Fiction


For Fiction, we want to see how you retell the relationship of the characters if they were transported to a steampunk world. Whether they are native to a steampunk universe or unfortunate victims of a pan-dimensional cock-up is entirely up to you.
