I've collected a number of steampunk themed RPGs and I've noticed something odd. Despite the sheer number of games, none of them have been "hits" (well Airship Pirates is not out yet, so it's too…Continue

"It would be a flexible choice for a Steampunk setting. I've had experience with Runequest and Call Of Cthulu. The latter of which would likely line up best with it. But as you state, BRP as a core setting-neutral version of the rules used in…"

"Have you seen Malifaux or Leviathan?  Visually impressive miniatures games.  I know Malifaux has a role-playing component to it.  Wonder if they might be what you're looking for? ~ Blimprider"

"I've got a card-based RPG I'm working on for D&D style classes, but it would be easily adapted to any setting. If there was enough interest I could make a steampunk mod for it.  http://esk-cards.wikia.com/wiki/Esk_Cards_Wiki"

[squints at, eyes up speculatively] Are you by any chance familiar with the shenanigans perpetrated on the old ShadowTK BBS in the early- and mid-90's?  Perhaps a party to them, particularly during the years of The Dark Lord & the Old Guard?

 

Your involvement w/the SR system was 3rd Ed, I'm guessing?

Happy Birthday from all of us here at the 42nd!  (personal note from AD:  It's a pity that we were one day late to share our birthdays with Elvis - we'll have to settle for sharing with Jimmy Page.  From the King, to Led Zeppelin - not so bad a step for a Steampunk . . .)
