It's 1885 in London, England, and surrounding the everyday peoples are amazing technologies, all steam driven! It is a time of wonder and oppurtunity. Never before has the common man had such access to the world. Flying ships, jetpacks, even scooters that hover off the ground! Travel has never been simpler or more efficient! However, not all things are good in Londontown. Pirates and criminals walk the streets and crime rates are high. Many times the commoner will arrive home to find that their wallet inexplicably has been emptied and they no longer have a single pound to their name!
Steampunktalia is a twitter-based AU roleplay. All of the actual roleplaying takes place on twitter and all the other stuff like applications and updates happen on Livejournal. If you're unfamiliar with Twitter, the other members of the community will be glad to help you out. Since twitter only requires short updates of 140 characters or less, this community is great for new roleplayers or for those who have trouble writing long replies like in forum based roleplays.
