If you ask me there is some place for the steampunk realm hidden somewhere in Abeir-Toril. What do you think of binding the 19th century Victorian steam engine era with fantasy in Forgotten realms ?
Imagine the battle with a rogue lich on zeppelin powered by magicaly infused steam engines which is crashing toward the mountain range. You need to figure it out how to survive the fight and the crash. Or, fix the engine with the spell and make your fighter knock down the lich with the broken steam pipe.
The endless question which gives me sleepless nights is:
Do dwarves dream of magical shotguns? And by that I mean pixie powder infused shotguns.
EDIT: Sorry for grammar error in second option but I can't fix it.

Yes, magical shotguns and spell infused zeppelins everywhere. Rejoice!
No! Have you lost thy marbles? These two does not mix!
