Vaporoare RPG

Vaporoare is a role playing game, but as is the case with such, it’s full of ideas for skirmish type miniatures games. The author writes:

Vaporoare is a role-playing game of weird science and mad magi in Victorian-era Europe. It imagines a world where Jules Verne wrote technical manuals for ether machines instead of fiction; Mary Shelley penned the autobiography of Dr. Frankenstein, and H. P. Lovecraft didn’t know what he was getting into. It is the world described by Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Dunsany and J. R. R. Tolkien. Europe is alive with races of fiction: elves dwarves and gnomes. These people have lived together since the beginning of time, and now they face their greatest challenge: the Industrial Revolution. Magick is dying, and technology is on the rampage.

3D Steampunk Inspiration

Mateen Greenway has produced an amazing set of 3D computer images of victorian science fiction vehicles, including cloudships, ether flyers and cities on Mars. Its a great bit of inspiration.

Gallery of Vehicles – Steampunk

Jim Stuht has a nice gallery of trains, planes and automobiles (and robots!) that he has constructed from various toys and models. It a fine source of inspiration for your VSF games.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Game

Gamer Extraordinaire Bob Beatty presents pictures of his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collection of figures.

He also has some photos of his Battle of Regents Park game

Bob always puts on a good game, and we are fortunate to have him here in Ann Arbor. He also runs games at most of the major US historical conventions. Look for him there.

Victorian Robots

The Mechanical Marvels of the Ninteenth Century site is a lot of fun, describing various fictional victorian robots. A good resource for Gaslight and Victorian Science Fiction miniature wargames.
