Whew lad, a true steampunk setting for modern D&D at long last. Hard to believe it's taken until 2021 for something like this to come along. If it had existed five or six years ago, I might've actually bought into 5e.

Lucky thing for me, I guess, that it's coming out years after I've already given 5e a fair shake and found its combat mechanics to be intolerably boring.
 

Steampunk, a genre than can drinks as source of inspiration all the fiction from the XIX fiction: Emilio Salgari, Jules Verne... but also with space for sad stories as Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. Have you thought about getting any idea from "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"? Have you read Legenderry, the steampunk mash-up by Dinamyte comics?

Was "Carnival Row" only a season?

How to controll firearms and armors in urban zones from steampunk settings? Some classes (and subclasses) could be rejected or become useless in a steampunk setting. Maybe there is a mystical taboo, a ghost can attack his killer with the same type of weapon used for the murder. Then everybody would try to avoid firearms, but the own gunslingers willing to a new shooting. And the power balance with the steampunk exosuits?
 



I am guessing it was just artistic license having both protagonists apparently be left-handed, as those are the hands that hold the pistols. But being left-handed was heavily suppressed in Europe and the US until some time into the 20th century, with people born left-handed being forced to learn to do everything with their right hand and to not use their left hand. I still like the cover, but being left-handed myself, that little thing really jumped out.

Sorry, the Cockney in me can’t resist it......
“Take a captain at this captain.”

For non-Londoners, including Americans, I’ve just recommended you get this excellent RPG product!

Take a Captain Hook (ie a look) at this Captain Cook (ie book)
I’ll get my coat...

Seriously, Cubicle 7 are great, so I’m up for this setting.

I mean, it has elves and ogres and stuff! This is not a historical book!
 



I like the idea that the heroes/magic users are left handed only. I don't know why but I just do.

Sadly, in some parts of the world, including supposedly civilized parts, left-handed people are still treated as evil or followers of the devil. The whole dark magic, evil, left-hand path thing. But it just stood out to me because the game is set in Victorian London and not a made-up fantasy world.

Thinking campaign ideas:
  • Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show opened in London in 1887. Something could have come over with him from the New World?
  • The first Sherlock Holmes novel was published. Based on? ( in this setting)
  • As above for both She and Allan Quartermain by Haggard
  • Queen Vic’s golden jubilee
I mean, it has elves and ogres and stuff! This is not a historical book!

I know: probably the reason why I liked the Left Hand idea as good thing is because the Heroes would technically be misunderstood by a majority of the general populous. It's a hard knock life sometimes with no recognition.
