Interesting contest; create a video or tabletop game using characters that pass into the public domain this year:

I figure 1924 is early enough to skirt the edge of steampunk.

With the right point of divergence it might be 100% steampunk too.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

Published in 1924, includes:
  • The time machine - HG Wells
  • When we were very young - Milne
  • A Passage to India - Forster
  • The Most Dangerous Game - Connell

So, imagine a game where you were in India being hunted by a talking bear with a time machine.
