From the introduction:
Steampunk Crescendo is a roleplaying game in a world gone wrong. Players will portray characters that wield supernatural powers with little or no constraint. And still it will not be enough to keep back the darkness...
Your character is the descendant of one of the Magi who saved the world. Your character must find their way through life, while living under a bloody shadow. What path will you choose? Your character faces a strict code of conduct and internal turmoil.
This initial version of Steampunk Crescendo was submitted to the Game Chef 2009 competition. While this version is playable, the commercial version of the product is superior in presentation, formatting, refinement, and mechanics.
