Symposium 2017 Sponsor – Topexx Dominions
The new Steampunk game Topexx Dominions is the official sponsor of the Steampunk Fashion Contest at the 2017 International Steampunk Symposium.
Space Monkeys Down has created some amazing steampunk characters for our upcoming game, Topexx Dominions. The two core figures of the Kickstarter campaign are Captain Bryant Templeton and Amzi Goodenough. We’ve unlocked three stretch goal figures so far, Colonel Mortimer Zachariah, Dread Pirate Ina, and Blackjack Zacch. Each miniature comes with its own custom designed base fit for 35mm miniatures. We created the figures so everyone can enjoy them while we continue developing the mechanics for the roleplaying game.
Topexx Dominions is a steampunk fantasy setting that we created. We created the setting about two years ago as part of another project, but it’s been only in the last six months that we’ve worked on the setting in earnest, and only in the last month that we’ve worked on RPG mechanics. We fleshed out some of the characters with some personalities, backgrounds, and illustrations. So we asked ourselves…what if we took some of these Topexx Dominions characters, talked to our friends at The Phalanx Consortium, and had them sculpt some fantastically detailed metal miniatures? And this Kickstarter came to be!
So far, we have two factions in our world, but we’re working on adding more. Our first faction is the steampunk-inspired faction called the Kelrands. The Kelrands are a mixture of humans, dwarves, and other similar races that combine the latent power in topexx crystals with technology to create technomagic, which defines and drives their society. The second faction is a nature-inspired faction called the Hos’lathi. The Hos’lathi are a mixture of elves and other fae races that harness the power of Nature stored in the topexx crystals to create enviromagic. Enviromagic allows them to shape their environment to the benefit of all living things.
