I'm sure someone must have written something like this, and I know of a few systems, but I'd like the membership's opinion as to what's good.

Of course, there's Deadlands, but that is specifically American supernatural gunfighters, and I'm looking for something with a more… race to Empires (?) feel.

Or, as I write this, maybe I mean more generic fantasy/sf 19th century?

Something equally at home with Wallachian vampire lords, lost jungle cities of the serpent people… and HGW/ERB, maybe even CS Lewis style Martians.

All in a version of old school D&D.

Probably I'm asking too much, but there has to be something fairly close.

Gaslight? Or Space 1889? These might be worth looking at.

forgottenfutures.com Forgotten Futures is very good

In Her Majesty's Name? I don't know enough about it to say how many of your bases it covers.

The Fistful of Lead rules series by Wiley Games covers this genre.

You might try League of Adventure and/or League of Gothic Horror which both use the Ubiquity system. These are both set in a 1890s like setting. Also both the Ubiquity system and Savage Worlds have Space 1889 supplements.

Castle Falkenstein is set in an alternate 1870s (steampunk/fantasy), although it's been many years since I played it, but it was most enjoyable.
