Who else wants to see this in TDM? :laugh:

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

Yeah, that's exactly the kind of steambot that would fit in our setting. :)

Maybe you can also get some inspiration of the movie "Wild Wild West" with Will Smith. The movie itself is really bad, but it features a lot of steampunk elements. Anyway, I guess you all know that movie already... :)

You have to admit it would be hilarious. :laugh:

Imagine an old weird professor riding a small spiderlike robot.

 

From the TDM wiki about the Inventor's Guild:

 

A mechanical carriage that walks on spider-like legs was unveiled at one trade fair. Although onlookers were fascinated by the device, it was slower than a horse and too large for most city streets, so no order for one was ever placed....

Er... no, it's not. Ordinary Daleks are not powered by steam. They're biological creatures that live inside (and depend upon) a metal casing.

 

You need to watch more Doctor Who. :D

Apparently I do, but I'm not inclined to. Visually they've always looked steampunkish to me, and I've not cared to delve into the mythos of Doctor Who to learn the fine details.

Loose BOWELS are the first sign of THE CHOLERA MORBUS!

Fair enough. It is something that's demonstrated in the first season of the new Doctor Who, so it's not exactly obscure knowledge, but obviously you do need to actually watch the show to see that. :)
