Loved this game! From the tie-in to alternate history ideas, to combining fantasy with the then emerging steampunk genre, it combined so many ideas in a unique and great way. Even the number generation usually done by dice, to be done by cards, because gentlemen don't play dice.

Still brilliant!

Mike Pondsmith's role-playing game of Steam, Magic, and Mayhem was ahead of its time. Thematically, this is one of the best roleplaying games ever written. Mechanically, it is a workable system -- but one that isn't for every gamer.
