  • Black Rose, mixed with Dark Fantasy with the main conflict being an corrupt, industrialized steampunk society versus a more rural territory where magic remains a dominant power.
  • Girl Genius — though its creators would rather you call it "Gaslamp Fantasy", as it has as much "luminiferous aether" and "elan vital" as it does steam, and the closest thing it has to "punks" are those gooftastic Jaegermonsters. What it does have is Mad Science. Which rules the world. Badly. From there, the rule is anything goes, as long as some geeky Mad Scientist might possibly consider it Cool, Funny, or awesome enough. Seen to date are elaborate clockwork robots, Humongous Mecha, Zeppelins from Another World, Frankenstein Monsters, Time Travel, and hand-held Death Rays.
  • Sfeer Theory takes place in a Victorian-ish era culture where scientists study the workings of sfeer theory in imperially funded universities. As of yet we haven't seen a lot of steam power itself, but other tropes are present, most notable Awesome Anachronistic Apparel. And unlike other steampunk stories, this series will delve into at least some Values Dissonance in the plot.
