* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: {{Franchise/Sherlock Holmes}} (and assorted sidekicks and nemeses), {{Literature/Dracula}}, [[{{Literature/Frankenstein}} Dr. Frankenstein]], [[Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea Captain Nemo]], [[Literature/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays Phileas Fogg]], Literature/JohnCarterOfMars, {{Literature/Flashman}}, and [[Literature/ThePrisonerOfZenda Rudolf Rassendyll]] all show up, to say nothing of the {{Lawyer Friendly Cameo}}s from Franchise/FuManchu and [[Series/TheWildWildWest Dr. Loveless]]. And all of them mingle with just about every 19th century historical figure you can think of, from Queen Victoria and Chancellor von Bismarck to Mark Twain and Emperor Norton.

* TheFairFolk: The Unseelie, who want nothing more than to wipe out/enslave all of humanity, because that's what they exist for. The Seelie are nicer overall to humans, but you still don't want to piss them off. [[spoiler:Although see KarmaHoudini below for a rather nasty reveal...]]


Added DiffLines:

* ModernMayincatecEmpire: The Mayans got magical advance notice of the coming of the Spanish, enabling them to preserve a fair degree of autonomy as a Spanish ally and protectorate. The Incas used powerful magic and alien supertechnology to annihilate would-be conquerors.

* ManifestDestiny: The American Freemasons benefit from a magic ritual (cast by the Founding Fathers!) that causes them to grow in magical power as the United States expands. Hence, they are keenly interested in seeing Texas, Orleans, the Twenty Nations Confederation, and the Bear Flag Empire brought into the fold.

* AnachronismStew: In part because of the Faeries, who had traveled trough several dimensions, some of them in the space age. Mostly because there are enough {{Mad Scientist}}s to give ''GirlGenius'' a run for her money.
