There are 10 sites in Second Life which define themselves as “Steampunk” and can be found on the secondlife.com website. These are:
Steelhead Port Harbor
What follows is a photo essay of my journey through each of these sites, with a slurl to each and a bit of a background on each. As I chronicled my journey through Caledon with my last posting I will only add an additional photo or two and a slurl to Steam Sky City. We will start there:
Here is the SLURL to New Babbage:

Neo Victoria is a role play sim located at the following SLURL:
Next I moved on to the beautiful Mythopoeia sim and the Curious Prim Store:
According to Wikipedia Mythopoeia is:
Mythopoeia (also mythopoesis, after Hellenistic Greek μυθοποιία, μυθοποίησις “myth-making”) is a narrative genre in modern literature and film where a fictional mythology is created by the writer of prose or other fiction. This meaning of the wordmythopoeia follows its use by J. R. R. Tolkien in the 1930s. The authors in this genre integrate traditional mythological themes and archetypes into fiction.
Some of the merchandise in Curious Prim Store:
Rosser’s Landing is home to The Riot Act a Steampunk inspired nightclub in Second Life.
I won’t write too much about Rosser’s Landing as I have written about this sim in the past:
There are several more sims I would like to write about in the future so consider this posting …
