Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Space 1889 is a Steampunk Tabletop Roleplaying Game by Frank Chadwick, and published first in 1988 by Game Designers Workshop, then by Heliograph Inc.It is set in an Alternate Universe Victorian era where the scientific theories of the day are true; a luminiferous aether fills the depths of space, which is what people use to travel from world to world in Cool Airships. Indeed, the game describes itself as Victorian-era science fiction. As the game is set in an alternate-Victorian era, all the great powers have colonies on the other planets.It had at least two Tabletop Game semi-spinoff/semi-expansions; Sky Galleons of Mars, which provided detailed rules for ship-to-ship combat, and the Soldier's Companion, which provided rules for playing a miniatures wargame.There was also a 1989 Computer RPG, Mars 1889, which is mostly forgotten today. Savage Worlds also has a reedition called Red Sands with Clockwork Publishing developing a version for the Ubiquity Engine (while also supporting the SW version).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Paragon Software developed a Space: 1889 computer game in 1990.

Advanced Ancient Humans: there are hints of an advanced, human-like precursor race. There is eventually proof of this in Beastmen of Mars.

Absurdly Spacious Sewer: Martian cities have big sewers, intended for a much larger population.

comment
Accentuate the Negative: Inverted. The game described but does not dwell very much on the dark sides of Victorian Britain or on the time in general. The average Victorian believes in Progress so it's mostly inverted in-universe too. This is a fairly optimistic game in general.

comment
Achilles' Power Cord: In a few stories the best way to stop a powerful, ancient machine is to stop the powerstation that powers it. It doesn’t have a literal cord, though.
