He also game masters…
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.
Join the game by going to the Society Page, choosing an NPC and contacting the GM.
M.E. Brines spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!
