Arc Deco — A Universe from the Mind of Stultus

First in the Victorian era there was "SteamPunk", which first began to merge technology with magic. Then came the Arcane Deco period of the 1930's, which changed the world, bringing the benefits of magic down to the common 'normal' people - but not always for the better. An alternate history of fantastic wonders, balkanized politics and horrific terrors. Currently a closed Universe, but interested writers may submit stories for approval and I may later 'open' it to all. Stories should involve alternate history and magic since 1890 to the modern era.

Conceal Me What I Am
