At the beginning of the 1900’s, 1/6 of the world’s wealth, led by many Captains of Industry, vacationed in and around the tiny Georgia island of Jekyll. Using this place of grandeur and elegance as a backdrop, we developed an alternate history occurring between the World Wars.
A time of great social, political and technological upheaval. A time of ingenuity and anarchy. A time for some of the most brilliant, and horrible, minds of the 20th century to confront each other. And a time of great new heroes and incredible new machines.
Taking place immediately after the end of the first World War, The Jekyll Island Chronicles presents an alternate history in which anarchist plots in the United States, which resulted in such incidents as the Wall Street bombing of 1920, are carried out by a secret cabal of villains.
To counter this, U.S. leaders like President Woodrow Wilson, Andrew Carnegie, and Henry Ford employ specially powered individuals to fight back. So, historical steampunk superheroes — got all that?
