  2. Oh dear -- this doesn't bode well!

    Perfectly Polished Aristocrat: 9% Steampunk-ness!

    Certainly you can fight (and rather well, at that), but why bother when you have servants to do it for you? Especially when there are balls to attend, royalty to entertain, and new fashions to be acquired!

    Look, some of us have to be gorgeous and muse-y to all those steampunk inventors, right??? ;)

  3. I'm a swashbuckling airship pirate: 14% steampunk. Where the winds may take you and beyond! Well...so long as there's ample treasure involved. With your zeppelin, your rag-tag crew, and your sometimes stupid bravery, you're ready for adventure!

    Oh drat, you've misplaced your spectacles again--no wait! You've accidentally built them into your latest invention (a flaming pistol fueled by quartz)...or did you mean to put them there? You're one resourceful fellow, and with the barest of scraps, you can fashion the greatest creations!

    That's me! :P
