Many more were hatched but those that were added fit very well.

Number 27 was one that I had to fight to avoid fleshing out more; it's one of my favorites, but the site is PG, so I can't really flesh it out any more than I did. Go to Comment

Which entries are you referring to, specifically? If you're just meaning #11, the entire point of it is as a humorous juxtaposition of the people of an alternate technology path looking at our tech path and finding it just as ridiculous as we find theirs. Everything else is pretty solidly within the Steampunk genre. Go to Comment

This is great, number 27 got me.  Have you read

I recommend Clockwork Fagin.  It reminds me of number 30.

I like this sort of list -- the kind that you never realize you need until far too late to plan for it. I wouldn't even have thought to look for a "30 tomes" backup list when running a Steampunk game. Glad that you've got it covered, in case I ever do. (Loved "SparkPunk" stuff). Go to Comment

Hm, steam' really not features Tesla-esque things? Should be clear from the name, but, maybe, cuts some brilliance from that setting. Go to Comment

How many come in a pack? Are they rechargeable or are they one shot specials? Useful and good to have, but maybe a tad beige, rather like the roadside kit in the trunk.

The mechanism I have in mind for them would be sigils carved into the tube, which are then activated/powered by the ether capsule once it's broken open. So theoretically they could be recharged, but my intent was that they're small, they're cheap, and they're one-shot. You light one up and toss it where needed, just like an actual flare.

Cost and amount are negotiable. XD Honestly, that's left up to the GM; how much light do you want your players to have available?

As for being 'beige', yeah, they are. Honestly, I was thinking that they're pretty much a fantasy port of the real thing. It's a device that's proved useful to us over the past few decades, surely they'd come up with something similar in a magical society. A nice bit of fluff to add to the world, and even gives a bit of utility to the players too. Go to Comment

I like these posts that give depth and details to little items.  Things like this don't make your game or your plot but they make the world richer.  Also the more detail an item has the more a PC can take to manipulating it and problem solving with it.

It seemed like a great place to camp. The clearing was good sized and sheltered from the wind. The brook just a few feet away. There is a natural hallow to keep the horses.

Then the night came.

It was like it became a different place. The temperature dropped. The wind, which does not seem to disturb cloth, almost cuts through you like an arctic wind. No one can sleep, as the soft ground has turned hard. The horses are uneasy. The Bats are flying over and stopping in the trees.

And then there is the eyes. There are glowing eyes just inside the tree line watching your group. The mages and clerics can detect nothing, but there is still something there.

(yet there is nothing at all... The Darkness will do nothing unless the players do something to it. And even then it will all seem to be a conincidence.)

Of course, in the morning, it all becomes sweet and light.
