Inventions in a steampunk setting can range from an advanced design to the fantastic. The role of technology is up to the players here. Steampunkfitters tries to start off at what could be a basic 19th century technology level and allows Player characters and NPCs can play the role of inventors. If the players wish to play further down this alternate time line they may. Whatever the desire, advanced and alternate technologies should play a prominent role in games.
Inventions are story elements more than just a piece of equipment. Inventions are described by words that are purchased with the Story Points that were spent in character creation and these give the invention itís qualities.
Most inventions are either laboratory accidents or they require a large investment of time and money and cannot quickly be reproduced unless the Reproducible or Replicating descriptions are purchased.
These are a few ideas for inventions.
