The 4th Annual Engineer's Ball, this Saturday!

The Piermont has finally returned, and just in time for the 4th Annual Engineer's Ball!  However, the Piermont has a new and distinct look, establishing it as one of the many outstanding builds of New Babbage.  Inspired by one of Steampunk venerable graphic artists, *Alanise, it is a SL version of an incredible, and until now, inaccessible location (as it was limited to the artist's own graphic brush).  You can see the original inspiration below...

Additionally, the traditional photography contest will be taking place, focusing on the beautiful images of New Babbage.  To take part in the Grand Opening of the Piermont, indulge in its fantastic new grounds, and even participate in the photography contest, please pay a visit to the New Babbage website, at:

... and its SL counterpart!

Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality.
