JazzSteampunk

JazzSteampunk is a genre module for Jazz. JazzCore is required.

Introduction

JazzSteampunk provides suggestions and optional rules for using Jazz with games set in a parallel Victorian era, or something very much like it. Social distinctions are important, and technology is a craft rather than a science. Machines are complex, ornate, and made by hand.
