Welcome to the old days!

Welcome to Gaslamp Fantasy stories! I know it's probably never been done or thought of in anime at all, but hey, here at Anime RP R Us, we can do whatever the frick we want! If you can imagine it, you can do it here.

As for a gaslamp fantasy, it's generally a fantasy story that takes place in Victorian-to turn of the century England, mostly London, and was coined by a writer for a popular webcomic called "Girl Genius" when the writer did not want the comic to be identified as a steampunk comic even though it had many steam punk stuff in it like clock work powered cyborgs and steam stuff and such. With Gaslamp Fantasy, it takes place in the same kind of setting as steampunk, but it's just more fantasy-based and not particularly tied to Victorian mad science. As a matter of fact, classics like Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlocke Holmes stories are being classified under Gaslamp Fantasy so to speak.
