Good morning, T. Taylor!

I'm sorry to say that "Steam London" has passed me by.  I can't find out anything about it.

You ask, "What other kind of Steampunk RPGs are there?".  Well, there are a great many RPGs that fit into the "steampunk" bracket, and you can find a list of them here:
http://www.victorianadventureenthusiast.com/guide.htm

The most well-known is probably "Arcanum: of steamworks and magick obscura"
You may well have to splash out on a rule book once you've found the game you like.

Alternatively, if you speak french, you can make a go of FREE RPG Uchronia.
http://uchronia.free.fr/


You generally will need at least two players for roleplaying games (otherwise they tend just to be 'make your own adventure' books).

Alternatively, you can do what we did and make your own.  It's all about the imagination!

That's all quite vague advice, but I'm prepared to offer more!

Once you've gotten a bunch of experience playing various rolplaying systems, I would suggest the Serenity roleplaying system (yes, the one based off of the movie Serenity and the show Firefly), which has been adapted quite well for a steampunk setting within my roleplaying group.  Again, you need to get a feel for that system and for the way things work in general before going aboutadapting things willy-nilly, but it's somewhere to go.

You won't get far trying to argue semantics with an English major.

What about "Space 1889" ?, I'm sure there are copies of the rules out there.
