SteamJazz is a nonprofit RPG project aiming to create a free steampunk pen & paper role-playing game with the quality of commercial RPGs. SteamJazz will be released as a free download when it is complete. The game and project was first presented to the public in the Finnish RPG convention RopeCon in July 2013. We have delayed our release date and the game will be released when ready.

If everything goes well and we are happy with the game, we will try to release a physical book as well. Even if this does happen, the game will still be free to download. It just gives those who want a physical book the opportunity to obtain one and support the project.

SteamJazz is a nonprofit project. The unlikely profit will be devoured by the project crew.
