Description:

As we begin a new century, many of us are looking back to a period that ended as the last century began. Viewed through goggles of brass and leather, the Victorian period can look like a lost golden age - a time of excitement and adventure, opportunity and possibility. Writers, artists, film-makers (and gamers) have all revisited the speculative fiction of that period, mining it for ideas.

Steampunk writers and artists have taken the worlds of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and Edgar Rice Burroughs (among others) and created new works based on the tropes and themes that these authors used, but viewed through modern eyes.

Based on the FATE system (www.faterpg.com). This supplement contains additional rules to tailor the game to the steampunk genre.

As well as the rules, this book also contains a history of the steampunk genre of fiction, the early science fiction works that inspired them and an exploration of their influence on today's society. This genre is about looking as honestly as possible at one of the most important periods in the history of our species. Hopefully, this will help you, the GM, to create worlds that celebrate the best aspects of our Victorian ancestors while not shying away from the worst.

If you don't want to use this game, the information will be useful for any tabletop campaign.

Please note: some artwork depicts partial nudity, if you are offended by this do not buy this product.

This sourcebook for Spirt of the Century (or any Fate system) is very useful, not only for steampunk campaigns, but also because it gives a lot of tips and clues to be used for old technology. Specially considering that SotC is already quite steampunk [...]

Description -- BBS is a compliment to any D20 game ruleset, where you can experience a BIZARRE world based loosely on the Victorian era Steampunk Genre. Easy Rules -- it's an average book; not many pages, but a lot of writing to read through, in order [...]

Brass, Blood and Steam is a useful product, especially given its very economical price point. If you are playing FATE or Spirit of the Century based games, BB&S gives you guidelines for "steampunking" character skills, stunts and aspects, new character [...]

This is an OK product. Its worth the $2.50 I paid, but barely. Its got some great adaptations of Spirit of the Century to the steam punk genre. However, it also has some flaws that made me grit my teeth. First, the computer generated art, with a few [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
