A WWI Throwback To The Middle Ages:

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

That chainmail mask was very close to steampunk style.

I stumbled upon to quite nice illustrations from Great War battlefields. http://andreasilva60.deviantart.com/gallery
Very detailed images for different weapons and other objects. (Some trench clubs as well..)
