Steampunk Roleplaying Games List

[Cross-Posted from RPG.net!]

 

I’ll do my bit and offer my Big Compiled List of Steampunk RPGs!

I chose to only include games that were still buyable – in stores or from publishers, or coming onto the market in the near future. So some Out-of-Print games will be in this list, but others will not be – my call, to focus on games you can actually get! Finally, all due credit to burningcrow and others from the RPG.net thread, who got me started!

There are now 46 Steampunk RPGs available for purchase, with 15 more pending release post-KS.

There we go! If I’ve missed anything, please let me know and I will edit the list. Castle Falkenstein is my first choice – maybe Mike Pondsmith isn’t the first, but he’s always striking and charts new territory. Of this list, I can’t say I have much interest in most of them; the majority just don’t do anything for me. The ones I positively like, other than Castle Falkenstein (to keep things positive) are: Brass and Steel, Kerberos Club (because nothing Benjamin Baugh does is ever boring) and Unhallowed Metropolis, as I got to work on that one.

I suppose if there’s to be a steampunk game I truly love beyond Castle Falk, I’ll have to write it!
