Victoriana – a world of high adventure and intrigue in an age of sorcery and steam!
The year is 1856 and the world roils in the unseen conflict between Order and Entropy. As technology marches forward the Celestial Engine moves ever faster, and all our fates grow more precarious. Now is the time to act decisively and boldly, to seize control of your destiny and impose your will upon the world.
Your adventures will take you into an alternate history infused with fantasy and esoteric steam technology. Aerostats float across the sky as noble Eldren chat with industrial Dwarfs. The Age of Magic may be long gone, but the Guild keeps its embers alive while technologists create extraordinary mechanical marvels.
Travel with the British East India Company to make your fortune in competition with Dutch merchants for control of the tea trade. Join the petty conjurers that support social revolution while the government calls on gentleman hermeticists to counter them. Explore uncharted lands and uncover relics and evils buried since the Great Flood. Follow your conscience and help the poor and powerless against those that would prey upon them. Wage war against the demons that have seduced the aristocracy and threaten to tear the Empire apart!
Victoriana offers an enormous and diverse game world deeply imbued with Victorian period feel, gothic fantasy magic and steampunk engineering.
The Spring-Heeled Menace is an introductory penny dreadful into the seedier side of the Smoke; the adventurers take the case of a hermeticist waylaid in Whitechapel in order to recover his lost cane.
No experience necessary. You can make your own character ahead of time or have one made for you. Check the files section for information on the game setting and system.
If time permits, I have another short introductory scenario. The Hounds of Hate. A Spectral Hound is at large -- mysterious and powerful, yet curiously selective in its choice of victims. Can your players solve the mystery surrounding the hound before they become its next victims?
