Starbright [visit their website here] has released a new Steampunk setting for Fate Core. “Steampunk powered by Fate is set on an alternative Earth in the future where technology has not changed much from that of Victorian times, but has become much more advanced. Humanity has made the jump off planet, but only as far as Mars. It’s a dangerous world, full of guttersnipes, clockwork robots, dirigibles, Martians and gas masks. This distinctive background, with a gritty, steampunk feel, integrates beautifully with the Fate rules to create an intense future world of adventure where the GM’s and players’ imaginations can run wild.” Written by Brett Fitzpatrick, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Steampunk powered by Fate.
