Vapor is a steampunk RP group, as well as a region on Max Barry's political simulation game, NationStates. The world we have created for ourselves is semi-realistic, though some modest fantasy tech is allowed.
The saga of Vapor all takes place on the fictional, earth-like world of Gaia Atlia. Our story begins with an international conference on a continental railway system, hosted in Ticciano, Fanaglia, in 1885. Of course, as you should all know, time is not a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey...stuff. Therefore, our narrative at any given time may be taking place in 1885, 1910, 1935, 1795, or whenever happens to suit our fancy. We have also agreed on a natural progression from steampunk to diesel/decopunk or even atompunk, depending on what year we're RPing in at that time.
The NS Vapor Wiki was created on 30 January, 2013 by Fanaglia and it presently administered by her and by Servoth (a.k.a. Creator 1917). Its was created with the intention of serving as a historical record for the Vapor saga in the world of Gaia Atlia, as well as a convenient format for archiving member nations' factbooks for personal and community reference.
