The search for diversity and multi-culturality in Fantasy and good-media-in-general continues...
Here are a few recent finds:
Possibly featuring a Native American character (see update below), Clockworks is an online RPG for the Steampunk movement. Click the image to visit.
Shawn, the creator of Clockworks helped clarify the heritage of the Clockworks character, Thorton, in the comments:
"Thorton (the possibly Native American character) is from Irone, which has a number of influences, probably the closest would be middle/near eastern. He and his father moved to the city when he was 5. "Thorton Nickelby" wasn't his birth name, but one his father gave him upon arriving in the city."
Though it appears to be mostly Eurocentric, characters of color including the main character, a Europeanized blue-eyed Asian girl named Kimiko, are featured. The art is exceptional, and the delivery of the content is witty and fun-lovingly sci-fi. The author, Aaron Diaz a.k.a Dresden Codak, a lover of the wonderfully executed Riceboy, appears to be Euro-American.
Many thx to Gaslamp Fantasy for the intel.
