The world of Steam Century is one in which our history went astray. In our world steam power has been used in the Renassiance, magic is real, and science does not always work in a way that 21st century minds might expect.
We create our world as an interactive project. Since Steam Century started in Madison, Wisconsin, we started with the political situation of our home town. In order to create a wide range of narrative possibilities we wanted to make Wisconsin a nexus of political boundaries.
When you look at our source materials, remember that we are not interested in a world with good guys and bad guys. We are interested in the stories that come from complicated situations in which individuals need to make tough decisions.
