Welcome to the official website of
Roll up, roll up and see the amazing Steampunk Tarot: Gods of the Machine! We present the 22 Gods of the Machine, whose primal impulses beat out the determining rhythm of life in the Steampunk Imperium. From the Technomage and the Aviatrix to Spring Heeled Jack and The Moon Voyage, these Gods of the Machine are the main attractions in the Theatre of the Mysteries. The fourfold leagues of Airships, Engines, Submersibles and Leviathans surround them, transmitting their life-navigating messages through a further 56 cards across time and space where metaphysics and technology meet in a parallel world. Wonderful art by Wil Kinghan.
