About SteamIron

SteamIron is an epic re-imagining of a classic space opera set in a science fiction universe. The story stems from an alternate history, projected far into future where the electronic revolution as we know it never occurred. Although the universe is recognizably futuristic, everything is grounded in the mechanical world. From inter-stellar space ships to advance communications all technologies are decidedly retro in their derivations. The story starts on this alternate Earth under the iron vice of the Ternion Empire that covers all known lands. The empire is a conference of the offices of the Emperor, his elusive elite guard (the Modan) and the misguided religious organization of the Pax Imperium.

The story revolves around the political struggle within the Ternion as each of its factions fight for power and control.
