Play Steampunk Society! Build railroads, steamships, airships, and fantastical steampunk vehicles. Produce iron, coal, oil and gizmos. Build and operate shops to sell them. Operate a cartel, insidious cult, or opium den. Make a fortune. Explore Africa in search of King Solomon’s mines and lost cities. Be a noble, royal, capitalist, mad scientist, vampire, reformer, or revolutionary in Carpathia, a fictional 19th century Eastern European nation in a steampunk world where anything is possible.

This is not a computer moderated game, so there’s no set program to follow. Anything is possible. If you want to try something that’s not in the rules, get with the Game Master (GM). Much of the game centers around player interactions, both economic transactions but also politicking, backroom deals and sneaky underhanded tactics. Any characters not belonging to a player are non-player characters (NPCs) and are tun by the Game Master.

Each turn various events occur that affect society—the arrival of foreign ships in the harbor, news, threats or opportunities from foreign nations, natural disasters. Players must cooperate against common threats (such as a foreign invasion) while accomplishing their own goals.

Steampunk Society is a FREE play-by-e-mail RPG. You can download the rules and maps @ The more players the better, so join up TODAY!
