Steampunk Alliance

I've been working on a steampunk novel (Teddy Roosevelt verses the Comstock Conundrum!) and reading Girl Genius and last night I had a dream about playing a steampunk LARP and it got me thinking...

We could do an Alliance steampunk game pretty easily.

Basically, magic would become science. You'd have guns that shoot lightning or ice, devices that could create Walls of Force, rods that emit entanglements and so on.


Healing would be done completely through chemistry (i.e. potions).

Instead of guilds, we'd have a lab. If you died, someone would have to carry your body back to the lab (no spirits!), hook you up to the slab, and bring you back through science, Frankenstein-like. ("It's alive!")

Instead of standard necromancy, we'd have scientific necromancy, where evil scientists steal bodies from the graves and re-animate them to do their bidding.

If you found an unusual device, you'd take it back to the lab to experiment on it to discover its function.



Perhaps, as a mad scientist, you could even create your own devices by giving Plot your idea. They would then tell you what parts you would need to find and/or make and what level of skill you would need to create it and thus use it.

Of course, all mad scientists would need henchmen -- fighters and rogues to help them build their power.

There's no need to be limited to humans, either. Why not an alternate Fortannis where magic was replaced by science? Elves and orcs and biata, using science to control dragons!



I'm thinking this might be a fun thing to try as an alternate campaign. Of course, any characters in this would not be allowed to transfer to the regular game due to the rules limitations.

Any interest in this? I'm thinking maybe this might be something to do after the 9 Towers campaign ends.

I've dipped my toes into the waters of writing/running fantasy steampunk LARP in the past, and it was a fun little diversion. I'd certainly play it, but I don't want to write it. :p

I like a number of the parallels that crop up under this new idea; Rituals become "Mad Experiments", Wands become "Rayguns" (as you said), Alchemy and traps translate directly, Potions become "Still More Alchemy, Sadeen Moore Style (TM)"

The only disconnect I'm picking up on is what battle magic and scrolls would become. What power do words have innately in a world of mad science? Or is the magic effect explained some other way in-game?

Also, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that characters can't transfer in or out just yet. "In our world, there's no magic and instead steampunk machines" isn't really that far off from "In our world, there is no ritual magic" or any of the other crazy LCO effects running around out there.

I would play this game. Alliance is already "wizards fighting robots" anyway.

The real challenge is representing melee weapons vs. guns vs. artillery vs. explosives.

NERF is your friend there. The guns they've been making lately are made for this kind of thing. The issue is mostly range, and that the Alliance system isn't optimized for heavy ranged combat. I suppose you could build gun reps in the same way you build wand reps and throw packets, but having to use both hands to fire a pistol isn't my favorite idea.

A campaign of this type would need new effects, new damage and carrier calls and a lot of other tweaks to the rules to work, and doesn't match the fantasy setting of the rest of the chapters, I think it would have to be stand-alone.

"No Ritual System" works because we're not adding any effects, or even technically removing any. We're simply not allowing magic items to transfer in and not putting out MIs, scrolls and reagents as treasure, which amounts to the same thing.

LCO effects have their place, but ideally they should be of limited duration and the exception rather than the rule. A steampunk game would be nothing but LCO rules.
 
When 9T is done, ask again. I might be interested with more development. At the end of the day the system to run it doesn't matter. The narrative is the important part.

Toddo,
I think I am in general agreement with your analysis. I think the bigger trick though is handling what should be the imbalance. A gun need to just flat out do more damage than a sword. The only advantage is not having to reload. Of course know when you get hit by a Nerf gun can be a challenge as well, though I only did one go at gaming with Nerf Guns. Maybe airsoft?

So maybe integration can't be as simple as "Yeah, sure, bring your character", but I think ignoring other chapters completely is a lost opportunity. There are a lot of storylines and plots even just on the East Coast that I would wholeheartedly describe as "Steampunk". I don't know where the line is for cross-chapter involvement, but I'd love to find out.

Archery already does as much damage as or more damage than a sword, unless you're a rogue. Modifying those rules to allow for guns wouldn't be too difficult, whether you use NERF guns or packets. And think of all the different kinds of ammo our system's "coating" mechanic will allow for!

This just gets cooler the longer I think about it. I'd definitely be interested in helping with something like this. I'm not so good with the story-writings, but I have microcontrollers and an EE degree collecting dust.

There would definitely have to be a new "Rule Book" (although it would be much smaller). It won't be just an overlap. However, many of the rules can remain (body points, build, weapon rules, alchemy, traps, etc) -- the more rules we can keep, the easier it will be for someone to just jump in and play. I definitely don't want to create an entirely new rules set.

The biggest change would be to crafting, it would almost have to be a combination of the ritual system and the crafting system we have in place now.

So, you definitely would want to keep as many rules as possible since this is both a heavily tested system and one that your player base already knows.

You can actually translate practically everything nicely, if you'd like.

Scholars--> Genetically Modified

Basically, plasmids from Bioshock. People inject themselves with <stuff> that allows them to do very, very unnatural things.
Like, shoot fire from their hands, or entangle others.

Of course, all this genetic modification makes their actual bodies rather frail and unstable. (Hence the low body and low armour)

Replace incants with "Biotic __<Spell Name>__" as though everyone had their spells as magically augmented formal shenanigans.
(That alone shouldn't be a huge balance issue in this world. Especially since there'd be plenty of folk who wouldn't like these "freaks")

Scrolls are injections that only folk with the proper modifications can utilize as a quick and easy source of power.



Maybe healing magic would have a slightly different flavor that's more in-line with the direct application of science.
Maybe touch-casting is the only way to actually use "healing" and Doctors(Earth Scholars with Healing) are just really good at their job and carry lots of "quick fixes" on them.


Rogues--> Assassins, Alchemists, etc,

Alchemy and backstabbin' is associated with dark alleys and the seedy underbelly of the world.
The flavor of it seems to be more or less all that would need to be changed.

It'd be cool to have a larger variety of effects that could be made and bought as alchemy.


Bows & Crossbows--> Guns

Pretty much a direct translation would be best here. I'd worry about balance otherwise. The phys reps would be the only real change.


Races--> Either exactly the same, but "futurized" or only aesthetic changes

You can easily just keep the races and the fantasy there, and simply futurize the clothing, etc.

Or, you can take the currant races and just change the aesthetics.

Maybe Orcs are Cyborgs now.
Biata could be Telepaths.
Stone Elves could be aliens or something similar.
Phys rep requirements change slightly.

I play a LARP that isn't steam punk per se but does have some of the elements you are discussing. Guns can easily be Nerf or packet based (the game I play uses both) with littke problem. Instead of rituals youd have science experiments that require schematics (Ritual Scrolls) and parts (comps) to make inventions that can either boost combat (like a magic item would) or create physical enhancements to your body (instead of a rit that goes on your spirit). Healing magic would probably go away but otherwise most of the classes seem to have a direct analogue.

Wow mike you a came around. I remember a couple times "alliance will never have steam powered anything. And no damn airships". Who says people don't change. I'd be up for helping with this venture

I'm sure the prohibitions haven't changed for mainstream Alliance, which is why this'd be a closed campaign. :p
