[[http://ageofsteelrpg.com/ Age of Steel]] is a TabletopRoleplayingGame in the DieselPunk genre. Set in the world of Neres, the game takes place just after the world’s first global conflict. The game blends is set in Neres, a world very similar to our own during the [[TheRoaringTwenties 1920s]] and [[TheThirties 30s]] except for the presence of diesel-powered mecha, airships being preferred over planes, and WeirdScience powered cybernetics.

Six years ago the various nations of Neres became embroiled in a global conflict called the Great War, a mirror of our [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI World War 1]]. Hundreds of thousands of men and women fought and died in the trenches, as bombs, gas, and {{Mecha}} were used by both sides.

Fearing the Great War would lead to the end of the world, [[AntiVillain genius scientist]] Johann Ansler created a super-weapon named the Peace Ray and used it to scare both sides of the war into an enforced ceasefire. Ansler subsequently vanished, leaving a fragile peace only maintained out of fear that he was out there, somewhere, watching.

Six years later and the tentative peace is beginning to fray. The various Great Nations have begun plotting against one another again, and in the shadows something even more insidious plots against all of humanity.

Age of Steel games blend
[[AncientConspiracy occult conspiracy]] with cold war plotting and a good dose of action adventure.
