So, who is the battle between? I was thinking of a fantasy civilization opposed to a steampunk civilization. It would be good to get some good historical events which could swing either way, so I'm looking for as many alternate history cliches as possible. Any suggestions?

- alien lizards invade, c. 1940
- analytical engine completed by Charles Babbage, 1872

... there appears to be a great source here, which I'll have to go through in detail later...

In the 1990s, after Doctor Who had been canceled, several videos were released by BBV called "The Stranger" series starring Colin Baker. In this series of six movies, two time agencies were at war trying to lock down time lines advantageous to each group. The groups were:

The Protectors: These guys protect the time line so that history takes its natural course.

The Perceptors: These guys perceive that there are many problems with the time line as it currently exists. They want to fix time so that it all turns out for the best.

These are the warring time agencies we play with.

The Stranger sounds like fun. Looks like they managed to squeeze three doctors into one of them (Colin Baker, Jon Pertwee, Sylvester McCoy)! If they ever release them on DVD, I'll have to grab them

So, how would the version come to accept new worlds? I know that including another world wouldn't change the gameplay, just give the player a choice other than steampunk or fantasy, so it's probably pointless...

Not pointless at all. If anyone wants to upload alternate artwork, or timelines, then please feel free.
