Combo Themes
« on: August 27, 2017, 19:36:15 »
As suggested here and here , new PM themes can be invented by combining two extant or previously extant themes. So:

Western + Construction = Cowboy Builders  :cowboy: :builder:

How about:

Space + Romans = Space Romans, a.k.a the Galactic Empire

Other ideas?

Space + Western = Star Trek
Space + Zoo = Star Trek
Space + City Life = Star Trek
Space + Police = Star Trek
...
and even Space + Romans = Romulans, so Star Trek

Space Zoo and Space City Life have potential to be interesting themes

This has already been done; it's called Super 4. :lol:

But to contribute... how about Magic and Pirates? I could imagine some seafaring battles between wizard-pirates. Anything that would bring back the Magic theme would probably be fine with me.

Steampunk
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Steampunk

That would be the Steam theme plus the Punk theme, right?

Steampunk is itself a combo, no? Victorian+technology.
