It’s hard to say when I fell in love with steampunk. Nowadays, I’m as much in love with the fashion as the fiction, and in no way do I feel conflicted by that.
When I was given the chance to expand my love of steampunk into another aspect of my interests, gaming, I typed what I hoped was a professional and enthusiastic affirmative then stepped away from my computer to do a very bouncy happy dance. Later, I found out that said steampunk role playing game would be based off the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences by my good friends, Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine.
Nifty note: They didn’t know it’d be me either until they saw the contractual details. Then we all pinged each other online and said, Oh Hey!
This entire project has been one of excitement, learning, and team-building.
Seriously, I’ve written about surrounding yourself with nifty people in the past. And if there’s one thing I want to blog about in this post, it’s that I am extremely lucky to be on a team of nifty, talented people. And what is this project, you might ask? Here’s a bit of an intro:
Galileo Games and Imagine That! Studios have teamed up to bring you an ambitious steampunk project! The Ministry Initiative is a two-part creative endeavor that will not only premiere new fiction from the steampunk world of the Ministry but also present a brand new role playing game from the makers of Bulldogs! and the ENnie Award winning game Shelter in Place. Thrill to the tales in Ministry Protocol, or join in as an Agent in The Ministry Initiative.
So please, visit the Kickstarter and maybe support it. The rewards are unique and many of the items are no longer available anywhere but via those rewards. For example, my Evie’s Gift is no longer available anywhere else. Heart’s Sentinel has also gone out of print and can only be obtained in the rewards of this Kickstarter. I think you’ll find great value in those rewards in addition to supporting a fantastic endeavor. At the very least, take a look at the video and ave a chuckle. You might want to play Find the PJ, but I promise you won’t have to search very hard.
