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.

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.
