A small set of Steampunk-themed weapons, as requested by Glasmond.
Not willing to simply glue an exhaust chimney and a couple of gears on a fantasy weapon to label it “steampunk”, I tried a bit of a “back to the roots” approach.
Soooo.. outdated scientific concepts, mechanical verisimilitude and literary references all the way !
PS : Indeed I’m aware that the Flail is a bit dangerous to use, especially for start out/switch off.
Also I pictured it manned by poor workers from Cornwall, used to harsh life and whose safety is judged secondary by their employers, I may go back on that one later.
