It does seem like the only way to settle this whole "what is Steampunk" thing!  Alas, then we'll just quibble about what form of dueling is acceptable Smiley

Nope, quibbling won't be necessary. It's obvious that any reasonable gentleman should own a customized personal tazer anyway.

totally non deadly of course...rather humiliating though... Cheesy

Gentlemen, may I suggest ... oil?

Make steampunk (sp)rayguns, which fires beams of pressurized warmed cooking oil, dyed with black/brown food colouring agent. The (sp)rayguns should upheld certain guidelines agreed upon by the community. The oil may be warmed to a maximum temperature of 50 degrees C (122F), which is below the pain threshold of the skin, while still being warm enough to be felt.

Suitable coveralls may be worm, which will also help to identify the winner. This could be done via a community poll based around photographs of both duelist's taken both prior and after the duel: One shot each at 20(?) paces.

Of course since no one would like to get oil in their eyes, suitable goggles will be compulsory equipment for both duelist's.  Grin

For those wishing to duel a moderated system is currently being worked on for the board.  Cool

If it's steampunkey then I propose two systems:

1)The oil gun theory, however using motor oil rather than cooking oil.
for rules please see the Code Duello.

2)something akin to "robot wars"  with steam powered automata?  Though I think CrabFu would "always be right" if honnor and honesty were settled in the steam-bot ring.

My reason for suggestion cooking oil is that modern engine oils contains some rather amusing chemical additives, which I'd rather not ingest if I can help it.  Wink

Did somebody say duel? Dueling is the greatest thing ever. If I can't be right I'll just challenge your honor and shoot you (in the back).
Dosen't get anymore honorable than that Grin

Single shot paintball gun?  I've got one around here somewhere.  Good excuse to wear your goggles...  Now I just need to find paintballs filled with motor-oil colored paint.
