Do You Know Of Any Phobias With A Steamy Ring To It ? If You Were To Make A Steampunk Haunt, Which Phobias Would Focus On ? .

My Suggestions:

Astraphobia: Fear of lightning

Megalophobia: Fear of large thing ( very lovecraftian)

Autophobia: Fear of being alone ( another lovecraftian fear)

Submechanophobia: Fear of submerged man made objects (Bioshock anyone ? )

Thallasophobia: Fear of the oceans (while on the subject of fears 20 000 leaques under the sea)

Chronomentrophobia: Fear of clocks

Pediophobia: Fear of dolls

Ornithoscelidaphobia: Fear of dinosaurs

Pyrophobia: Fear of fire.

Coulrophobia: Fear of clowns (for those into old timey carnival)

Atelophobia: Fear of imperfections ( because every good tinkers have ocd)

Chronophobia: Fear of time

Aerophobia: The fear of flying ( a aeronaut's worst ennemy)

Globophobia: Fear of balloon

Zoophobia: Fear of animals (think great white hunters)

Catophrophobia: Fear of mirrors ( Alice  Throught The Looking Glass: The Horror Edition)

And a hillarous non-steamy honorable mentions: Calygynephobia, the fear of beauty. A horror movie based on this would surely look like either of those:

Pinaciphobia (katastichophobia) is the fear of lists

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.''

Phobophobia is a thing.

Atmouphobia - fear of steam

Atmouphobophobia - fear of the fear of steam, or a Steampunk's worst nightmare

By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
