About Us

Cracked Monocle is Texas’s premiere steampunk gaming company. You know us for our signature steampunk RPG, Tephra, and from seeing our games at conventions across Texas and beyond. Here at Cracked Monocle, we take a real good look at things that aren’t fun... and we crack them! From card games to board games to RPGs, we enjoy having fun, and looking like good Victorian mad scientists while doing so. Pull up a chair, twirl your mustache gleefully, and get ready to have some fun with Cracked Monocle.

in 2012 Cracked Monocle self-published their first product, the Players Guide for Tephra: the Steampunk RPG, with the help of a wildly successful Kickstarter. From that point on, Cracked Monocle has been churning out supplements and adventures for Tephra in addition to the publication of numerous other board and card games.
