The Steam Century Mystery is a multifaceted game that combines elements of live action role-playing and crime dramas. Players follow a trail of clues by investigating rooms and interacting with costumed characters. This game is a cross between the How to Host a Murder games and a more traditional Live Action Role Playing Game.


Our mystery events are role playing games in the sense that we, the cast, stay in character. Players are invited to play in character with us at their comfort level. Some of our fans have more concrete steampunk characters they developed so they can "live" in our world with us. We also have players who just play the game to solve the mystery and the puzzles and don't worry about pretending to be any kind of character.

We run our mystery events at conventions and other locations around the Midwest.




Players at Geek.kon wait for the finale that was part live action theater and part radio show.
