Loooooooong time ago there was a post here where we imagined what the folklore of a steampunk world would be (it was called Steampunk Lore or something like that). The discovery of the Myth And Legend Of The Post Apocalypse video duologie ( see my post in Aural Ocular) give me the idea to make a reboot just to see what we can come of now.

Some Ideas Of My Own

Siren: Those harpies relatives are for aeronauts what mermaids are for sailors.

Vestal: Relic of the pre-christian cult of the goddess of the hearth Hestia, this female folk magicians are often found in engineer circle.

Knocker: Helpful cave dwelling fairfolk who help miners.

Spring Heeled Jack: The  quintensential victorian urban legend.

The Ripper: You surely heard about numerous suspect for the Jack The Ripper case, but what if he was something nearly not human, a savage modern war shaman who have gone on a rampage.

Metal Charm: It is a good occasion to re-show this trinket i created a while back

Casey Jones

Mercury: Pagan god of merchant and thieves revered as a patron by industrialists.

Vulcan:The roman metalsmith god, reverd as a patron by workers and tinkers.

Deep ones, Ithaqua, nightgaunts and other rumours of « elder gods ».

Dovokhoi ( not sure if right word): Fairfolks who use to live behind hearths but now also
live behind boilers too. Must be feed regularly if you don’t want to suffer their wrath.

The Noosphere: A personification of the human spirit.

King Coal : Spirit Of Coal Power.

King Steam: Spirit Of Steam Power.

Dwarves, gnomes, dark elves and other cave dwelling fey

Lutin:known in english as christmas elves.

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.''
