A Steampunk Road Tutorial – Part I

Q: How hard is it to get started playing “Steampunk Road”?

A: Not hard at all!

First, go to http://www.steampunkroad.com/index.html and gaze upon that beautiful, nineteenth-century, genuine-beaver-fur top hat at a jaunty angle. We recently heard from the new owner of that hat in the comments to our earlier posting about it.

You have more than a dozen different things you can click on here, but nearly half of them just change the language of the site. One of them takes you here to this blog, one of them plays a lovely tune to put you in a steampunk mood, and a small host of others take you to interesting places and things. The two links we are interested in here are the two nearest the top: Login and Register. Now, you can’t login until you register, so let us look there first.

You have a much-more-manageable three choices at the registration page. You can either register using a valid email address, using your Facebook login, or using your Twitter login. (Want a different login option? Just ask and we will add it for you!) Facebook and Twitter are your easiest options, but which option you choose is entirely up to you. Once you have successfully registered (and received your password, if you chose to register with an email address), then next time you can login directly using the Login link.

That’s it for getting started! Take a look at the map and see if you can find yourself floating off the west coast of Africa. You are on your way!

“On my way to where?” I hear you ask. Ah, that is a question for Part II.
