    I'm not sure if you know this, but Steampunk is the other kind of punk, with Victorians in top-hats and steam-robots

    In the Steamopera-verse, the *American Revolution is butterflied away by the Point-of-Divergence around fifty years before it even began, resulting in *British Virginia and *Republican Canada (influenced by the Republican French bloc, thus French/English). Louisiana is *Emigre (Monarchist) French, Mexico is what it is, and California is a republic. In the later world-map, I reduced the size of Russian Alaska - now the border runs at some parallel... The whole map projection is shifted 40 degrees westward, so I just cut it there.

    Crap, Yeah.

    Cyber Punk: Future Stuff Like Johnny Mneumonic/ Shadowrun, etc.

    Steam Punk: Wild Wild West, or Captain Nemo (A lot Jules Verne works) and that sort of stuff. Sorry for saying Cyber when I meant Steam

    Theres a cool picture of a 'Steam Punk' inspired computer over at Wikipedia:

    I thought it was just a mistake, because the style is so different from what I imagine a cyberpunk map would be -- I'm thinking, green lines on black.. with scanlines! For that "80's Future" flavour, when they didn't even have colour monitors.
