Cashing in on Steampunk

The new supplement for Victoriana, Marvels of Science and Steampunk, arrived last week.  I see that Cubicle 7 has jumped on the current Steampunk bandwagon.  Originally, Victoriana was designed as  the 19th century, only with magic (rather like Amazing Engine’s  For Faerie, Queen & Country.  Never heard of it?  Neither did most people).  However, it appears that a magical Sherlock Holmes is not enough, we have to have magical and steam technology as well.  Oh, well, maybe this supplement gives them another market to go after.  Steampunk seems all the rage at science fiction conventions for the past couple of years, so perhaps some advertising targeted at that segment would help sales of the game.  Certainly could not hurt, save for the expense.
