From the campaign:
As with the North America continent book, Steamscapes: Asia will include an extensive alternative historical background covering the last 100 years leading up to 1872. There will be several longer sections covering a few key regions, and also a shorter section covering additional countries.
The three largest sections will focus on China, Japan, and the Indian subcontinent. (For a variety of reasons that will be explained in this book, India does not actually unify in the Steamscapes world but remains a loose coalition made up of diverse kingdoms.) In addition, there will be shorter sections discussing other smaller but important nations such as Korea, Siam, Burma, and Malaysia.
