Some of those who survived took to the air, scratching out a living on airships and dirigibles soaring over the dangerous ground. Ben Gold has his own airship, a family heirloom, and has signed up to help a group of scientists looking for a cure. But that's not as easy as it sounds, especially with a power-hungry air city looking to raid any nearby settlements. To make matters worse, his airship, the only home he's ever known, is stolen. Ben must try to survive on the ground while trying to get his ship back.

The Victorian Christmas Rituals: A Steampunk Perspective
Game review: Choson, a thematic card-driven game for two to four players set in a Japanese steampunk universe. The Kory? dynasty is now defunct, replaced by the Chos?n dynasty founded by General Yi. Unfortunately, soon after its founding, intriguers nicknamed the “Watchers“, appeared all over the realm of Chos?n. And ever since, feud and disorder has sprouted everywhere. But this time, instead of the usual political contests and sneaky manipulations, armed warfare has become the rule. The influence of the “Watchers“ on some families has grown very strong and some whisper they have such extraordinary powers as allowing them to travel through time.
Game - Koryo, a card game for 2 to 4 players based in an uchronian and politico-steampunk universe. Kory? is a very smart game, quick to play (10 min) with only 8 turns, interactive and with innovative game mechanics making it very enjoyable and highly addictive.

Read - The Steampunk Bible by Jeff Vandermeer, Steampunk—a grafting of Victorian aesthetic and punk rock attitude onto various forms of science-fiction culture—is a phenomenon that has come to influence film, literature, art, music, fashion, and more.

A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history.

Kickstarter - Steamscapes: Asia - A Savage Worlds Licensed Setting, Steamscapes is a licensed game setting for Savage Worlds. It is a realistic alternative historical approach to steampunk.

The world of Steamscapes is recognizable but changed. You will find many familiar faces and places, but their roles are not always what you expect. Ends October 28th.

Kickstarter - Skies of Fire comic, An epic new comic featuring gigantic diesel-powered airships and their duels in the high skies. Not steampunk but certainly of interest, because of *Airships*! Skies of Fire takes place in the fictional Aquilan Empire, a kingdom roughly analogous to post-WW1 Great Britain. Instead of a navy, the Aquilans maintain a vast fleet of airships to defend its colonies, trade routes, and holdings. In the center of the Empire lies a monstrous, never-ending storm called The Expanse. It’s so dangerous not even the Royal Fleet dares venture into it for fear of losing its ships, personnel, and cargo. Naturally, that’s made The Expanse a haven for those who would prey on the Empire for their own gain. Ends April 11th.
