Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Have you ever been to Augustville, the rum and tobacco paradise of the Mid-Atlantic? Have you admired the majestic palaces of Cor or explored its bars and nightclubs? Or probably you were lucky enough to take a cruise up North, to the cold rocks of Mjoll?

Here it is - Atlantic Republic, a sea power halfway between New England and Iberia, Brazil and Dakar, stretched from the Northern latitudes to equatorial waters, rich in oil and coal, sugar cane and tobacco, tin and copper, precious stones and creative spirit. Don't look for it on the map - in the meanwhile, it exists only at the atlantic_rep community (Russian, other language versions considered).

The year is presumably 1934, no exact date given. The Republic is going to celebrate its Centennial - with navy review, air parade, and every kind of festivals. Of course there are pirates, spies, at least one Mad Scientist, brave sailors and aviators, femmes fatales and lady adventurers. And lots of Dieselpunk - factories and workshops, weird airplanes, flying carriers, streamlined trains, air taxicabs, destructive secret weapons, etc. etc.

Here's just a tip of an iceberg:

But we'll never take our Dieselpunk Legend to the extremes like this:

No flying dreadnoughts!

Anything else possible.

To Luiz:

of course we thought about it, and August Island seems to be a perfect place for such ruins. Feel free to join our community @ Tarrantry, we'll be happy to give any explanations in English and to see your contributions and/or comments.

I liked the Atlantic Republic. :) It actually reminds me of something I've been dabbling with, the idea of a third-world class contemporanean Atlantis, but which never physically sunk - just metaphorically, its former and ancient imperial glory. If you already hadn't thought of that for the AR, maybe it could have some waaaaay ancient ruins, tracing back to something Plato named Atlantis. What is *really* waiting there, luring adventurers with promisses of thrilling, awe and terror, well...

Some of these images remind me of Crimson Skies.

I will inform you on further developments of the AR Legend.

I wouldn't understand the Russian forum, but thank you for clarifying!

It's not a play. Anyone can invent a device (airplane, warship, structure) or some field (railways, mining, shipping) and make a story involving some fictional characters. If you're interested, I can provide you with basic data and setting details.
