Searching for material to run an Electropunk game.

(1/3) > >>

GeekyBugle:
Like the tin says, I'm searching for material to run an electropunk game.

You know:

Tesla guns/rifles
Faraday shields
Edison mobiles

That kind of stuff.

Can't find anything other than Edison Force in DTTRPG, but since I don't know it I'm reluctant to buy it (Yes $5 US is enough I can't afford to waste it).

So, if you know of anything that could help me I would be eternally gratefull.

What the Hell is "Electro punk"?

All those things you describe are 'Steampunk'.

Steampunk = Everything is powered by steam/aether

Electropunk = Everything is powered by, you guessed it, Electricity.

So you don't have the steam powered Mechas, among other things.

But thanks for the snark, very helpful.

It was not "snark' - it was truth .

There are only TWO "Punk" categories - Cyberpunk and Steampunk. Every other use of sticking 'punk as the second half of a category noun is bullshit.
