British Invasion!

In celebration of our return, Steam Century: Yahara is teaming up with our cousins in Kaposia (aka. Minnesota) to present a mystery at CONvergence over the Fourth of July weekend. Details are being kept hush-hush, but we can announce that the crew of the HMA Badger will be making an appearance! We will also be presenting our FIFTH annual Steampunk Fashion Expo there, so plan to join us at CONvergence.

Welcome to the home of the Steam Century: Yahara chapter.


We are the crew of the HMA Badger, an airship in Her Majesty's service. In our world, the map looks much different than the one you might know. This is the world of Steam Century, a Steampunk alternative history.

Steam Century is the name of an alternative historical world created by a group of friends from Madison, Wisconsin. In our world, the British lost the Seven Years War (aka The French and Indian War), which left Canada in the hands of the French. Without Canada as a consolation prize, the British fought ferociously to keep their American colonies. The infamous rebellion of 1776 failed, and ended with its leaders executed or exiled.

The American colonies have developed in a much different world from the one we know. The colonies' western border is the Mississippi River, which forms the boundary between the British Empire and the American Indian countries of Tekamthi and the Confederation of Plains Nations. To the south, the British colonies border Elatse, a country founded by the Five Civilized Nations, exiles from the American rebellion, and French and Spanish immigrants. To the north is the old enemy, New France. To the west of the American Indian nations can be found the small countries of Deseret and Texas. These are surrounded by the giants of Mexico and the American colonies of Imperial Russia.


Politics do not make up the only differences in the world of Steam Century. Werewolves, vampires, and other mysterious beings prowl the night. Magicians and scientists vie for control of the elements.

It is now the year 1903. North America and the rest of the world enjoy a tenuous peace. In this Cold War, rival nations attempt to further their ambitions through espionage and treachery.
