Cover to Space 1889
While researching some future postings, I came across a site that reminded me of fond memories, concerning a paper & pencil rpg game named Space 1889. Produced by Mr. Frank Chadwick, it provided a detailed alternate universe for a Victorian/Steampunk background. I desperately wanted to play it, but unfortunately no one I knew (at the time) could comprehend the concept of Steampunk!
Stormfront Class Cruising Ship
The British Empire reigns supreme, Mars is beginning to be colonized, ether ships are commonplace, "savages" on Mars challenge new residents to the planet, well... read for yourself!
Cargo Hauler landing for replinishment
Additionally, a British company, Noise Monsters, has produced radio-adventures of this universe on CD. I have not obtained them yet, but they look quite good (their website is located at...)
