I've noticed that there do not seem to be any steampunk RPs running, I was wondering if there would be any interest. I am trying to make a steampunk CCG and have something of a basis for lore I would love to see people try to run with. So here is what I have so far:
The world is almost completely covered in desert covered only in 40% water with occasional oases spread throughout the world. Almost all travel is accomplished using naval ships and airships. The world however has not fallen into chaos. Several city-states have formed all over the world, mostly forming in large oases these city-states lay claim to almost all of the world's resources. These city-states are ruled by monarchies and several other noble families. Due to the impracticality of having standing armies these city-states have taken to hiring ships as mercenaries in order to form armies. This has lead to the creation of a large number of variably sized mercenary groups that maintain military ships and offer their services to the city-states.
However the world is changing, what few oases that were left are slowly dying away. Without these areas to farm and harvest resources from all of humanity may be doomed to a slow starvation...
Reply if interested or if you have any suggestions!
