    Default Steampunk Europe

    No real background for this; just something I did for the heck of it, since I'm on vacation this week. I tried to include stuff you don't see in 'normal' steampunk scenarios - strong, widespread Islamic powers, uber-Poland (and Hungary), and no Germany. One day I might try to work up a timeline/etc, for this, but don't hold your breath.

    Looks really nice, man. Except the gears...they look like cookies. A small chisel bevel might have been better there instead of the smooth bevel. Otherwise, looks really pro.

    Very nice. I like the cookies! Actually, except for one (which *does* vaguely resemble a Keebler Fudge Stripe cookie), they pretty much look like gears to me!

    This is brilliant. I love alternate histories like this and it's great to see different nations doing well to usual. Although the Grand Bretagne thing confuses me. The style's really good too. I can imagine it in a history book almost.

    My thought was that one of the centers of the 'steampunk industrial revolution' was in Brittany, allowing them to expand into a world power, eventually co-opting and conquering much of western Europe, including England and Ireland. Scotland, another center of the SIR, maintained its independence and is now a technocratic republic.
