This single, pivotal event would change the world. The smartest military minds of the coming generation—Zeppelin, Jellico, Fisher and others – diverted their attention to the glorious new technological revolution, and sea-going battleships were abandoned around the world. In their place, armored giants took to the skies. In 1906, Great Britain launched the HMS Leviathan, the first of the “super air ships,” another step in the worldwide arms race. By 1910, the most powerful nations boasted large High Fleets, and the start of small skirmishes left the world uneasy… welcome to Leviathans! AN ALTERNATE HISTORY GAME OF AIR FLEET BATTLES! Leviathans simulates combat between warships that have taken to the air in an alternate history/steampunk 1910. The king leviathans, battleships, are the largest vessels.

You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion! In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner. But wait! It mjust be something in the air; several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way.

Your parents wouldn’t be proud, but your grandparents, on your mother’s side, would be delighted.
