Someone screwed the timeline up

It's 2150, and the Earth's starting to get over the Great Apocalypse of 1906. From the steampunk sky-cities of Isla Aether and High Tortuga, airship pirates ply the clouds, in search of excitement and booty, kept in check only by the might of the Imperial Air Navy.

Down below, North America is a wilderness, its beast-haunted wastelands criss-crossed by the tracks of the freedom-loving Neobedouins and the armoured railroads that connect the Emperor's widely scattered domains.

In the walled, smog-shrouded cities, people huddle in forced Victorian squalor, lorded over by the upper classes, while the Emperor's clockwork policemen patrol the streets and the ultimate threat of the Change Cage hangs over those who would rebel.

You've got yourself an airship. You've got yourself a crew. You've got yourself one of Doctor Calgori's fancy chronominautilus devices. All you need now is a good swig of rum (trust us, you'll need it), and you're ready to set sail on the winds of time and plunder history itself!

Who knows, maybe you can screw up the timeline some more?


With a crew of drunken pilots

We're the only airship pirates

We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise

We're the terror of the skies but a danger to ourselves

From the music of renowned steampunk band Abney Park

From the true (honest!) tales of Captain Robert of the airship Ophelia

From the creators of the Clockwork & Chivalry and Victoriana RPGs comes the ultimate steampunk role-playing experience... Airship Pirates!

With an interesting twist on the Steampunk genre, setting it in the far future after a slow apocalypse, Airship Pirates is a fun light weight system, good for those who enjoy telling grand stories. It's doubley fun if you're a fan of Abney Park, as the [...]

If the idea of playing a time-travelling/steampunk/airship pirate RPG set in the retro-future post-apocalyptic world of 2150 and based on the music and lyrics of a steampunk rock band from Seattle doesn't appeal to you by the time you've gotten this far [...]

It's fun, easy to read, and overall seems like a solid system. My only complaint, and not worth docking on the rating, is that the PDF has a "textured" background, which prevented me from being able to read it on my black and white e-reader. If the [...]

Well laid out. Appears to be a solid system and a great idea. Going to be running a campaign for this soon. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
