Theme: Steampunk

Group Description

Steampunk refers to a genre of fiction where the beginnings of the industrial revolution (punctuated by steam powered-engines, though other "early inventions" may also be features) mix with fantasy, magic, the future, or a mixture of all three. As such, many steampunk games are set in the late 19th century. The writings of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells are usually cited as inspiration for steampunk.

Possibly the easiest definition of steampunk is: Modern technology as depicted using an earlier form of technology. A sci-fi with XIXth century looks. Typically this includes a lot of cranks, gears and clockwork mechanisms, but might also feature basic electricity gathered from hydroelectric, geothermal or other sources.
