No matter the time, no matter the place, no matter the character class… some things never change.

Steamworks is available in Standard or Deluxe formats from Midnight Cellar.

Bad puns aside, we are grateful for the latest Steamworks review to roll in–this time from the Flames Rising e-zine. If you’re still not sure if Steamworks is for you or you’d just like more information, brave the Flames to see what they have to say.

Okay! No more puns (today). I promise!

Steamworks review

-April 21st, 2008

If you’ve been interested in Steamworks but still want more information before you put down your hard-earned cash, RPG Resource has just posted a detailed Steamworks review.

This is a book to read carefully and think about before adding technology to your game, but once you have decided that you want it, you are provided with just about everything you need to both choose what goes in and then make it work during gameplay. It’s good to see both well-constructed rules AND a thought-provoking discussion of how to use them in the same book.

Read the Steamworks review, then buy it.

We’ve been writing about Steamworks for several months now. It’s the 165-page ultimate guide to introducing technology to your fantasy setting. Our first title under our new Silven Crossroads fantasy imprint offers classes, skills, feats, devices, prestige classes, and more. You’ve probably read the designer’s journal, and you’ve even maybe seen a preview. Now you can bring a little steam to your own game.

The Standard edition comes with both a printer-friendly PDF and a fully illustrated PDF. The “full” PDF is hyperlinked with hundreds of cross references to help you quickly find the information you need.

This special edition is ideal for running on a laptop in a tabbed browser, as it allows you to keep several sections of the book easily accessible all at once. If a laptop isn’t your thing, consider that it also means Steamworks is easily accessible and readable from your PDA. (Click on the thumbnail for a larger image.)

Steamworks is available from our own Midnight Cellar (which of course we’d prefer), or as part of your shopping at DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and soon from e23.
