We had a great review of the Victoriana 3rd Edition Core Rulebook over at rpg.net the other day that we just had to share with you:

Edward Kabara says in his review: “If you want some steampunk, some magic, and some Victorian history; you can't go wrong with this system. Character generation is easy, actions have the players doing more thinking then just roll one die, and combat is quick.”

You can find loads more out about Victoriana in our post here, including a free extract of the rules to download

But that’s not all the Victoriana news we have for you today! We’re pleased to say that our latest Victoriana supplement, The Concert in Flames, has finished rattling off the steam-powered printing presses and will soon be on a locomotive bound for our warehouses, and thence into the hands of all our pre-order customers.

Finally, the PDF version of Victoriana 3rd Edition will be in RPGNow’s upcoming Black Friday Sale, so keep an eye out for that later in the week!

About Victoriana 3rd Edition

Victoriana-3rd-Edition-Cover-webres

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.

Victoriana 3rd Edition is backwards-compatible with the previous edition – your 2nd Edition supplements can be used with the third edition rules.

320 pages – hardcover – black & white interior art - free PDF with hard copy

About The Concert in Flames

TheConcertinFlamesCover400

The Concert in Flames is the complete guide to Europe for the Victoriana setting, an alternate history of steam and magic. From the Rock of Gibraltar to the steppes of Russia, from a Kingdom of Giants to the Boot of Italy, this book is packed with information about the nooks and crannies of a fantastical Victorian Europe.

But that’s not all, for it also contains the titular adventure, a five-part, city-hopping adventure that takes the adventurers from Paris to Vienna, Budapest and beyond! There’s a continent-spanning conspiracy afoot that threatens to shake the very order of Europe and cast it down in flames – can the adventurers find out what’s going on and put a stop to it before it’s too late?

This 160-page book contains:

  • A gazetteer of Victoriana Europe, detailing the government, society and key locations of each kingdom and empire, and providing plot hooks aplenty.
  • Guidance for creating European characters.
  • Notes on the pantheons of Europe, from the Nordic Norns to the Slavic Archon Chernobog.
  • New spells and equipment, from the firearms of the German confederacy to the crystal blades of Andorra.
  • New monsters and creatures, such as the Ciarpans that live beneath Venice or the Russian Wyverns that dwell in the Ural Mountains.
  • Four new sapients to play, from Giants to Harpies.
  • A multi-part adventure set across the length and breadth of Europe.

The Concert in Flames is a 160 page, black and white, softcover - available for pre-order now.

Written by Walt Ciechanowski, Chad Bowser, Lynne Hardy, Andi Newton and Alasdair Stuart. Illustrated by Jon Hodgson and Scott Purdy.
