Steampunk is, as the name suggests, a discussion list for discussing various aspects of steampunk, in all its forums (literature, film, art, roleplaying games, etc.) and all its forms, including its predecessors, the scientific romances of Verne, Wells, Kipling, et al.
Much of the discussion is often oriented towards roleplaying games, but do not let that deter you - it is just that many people interested in the genres of steampunk, scientific romance and Victoriana in general tend to be rolegamers as well.
This list is also a forum for 19th and early 20th century history and alternate history. History, both real and imagined, is a terrific source for inspiration and interesting stories and ideas, and thus most welcome.
I do not believe in censorship or the divine right of the moderator. I believe that if given the possibility and responsibility, people can govern themselves and behave towards others in a compassionate manner. Therefore I give you, the new list member, the responsibility to avoid flaming, name calling, insulting, and in any other manner causing injury to other list members. If you behave in a gentlemanly or ladylike manner, you should have no problems here. Welcome abroad, full steam ahead! Behave.
