Re: Queensberry Rules: Combat

All the Queensbury Rules are optional tweaks not included in any Victoriana Rulebook.

Re: Combat example?

Combat is the hardest most frustrating part of Victoriana. It's also the most exciting and fulfilling. My best idea was a whiteboard and drawing arrows and stuff for who attacks what and what attack gets countered but it's all still a mess That is what I do as well, I also require the players to rem...

Six Stolen Ferns- A Free Scenario for Victoriana

My blog reached another milestone this week, 150 Posts! To celebrate, I've added another scenario I've written to the blog's Resources page. It's a silly, low-stakes, introductory adventure, tasking the adventurers with recovering lost botanical samples, and a mission for young love. You can get the...

Re: Frendal lizard magic

Thanks for the reading, rulandor.
I assume they mean one person, but that wording is really ambiguous. It really could be read either way.

Re: Frendal lizard magic

I can't help much then, I'm running from the Corebook.
However, I would suggest a single target or an area of effect attack. Of the two, a single target seems more likely to me. Enough of my supposition, anyone with the book want to chime in?

Re: Victoriana Girl Genius

You could house rule the Adept Artificer, Eureka, Greasy Thumbs, and They Thought You Were Mad! Talents so they can be taken multiple times. This would give some mechanical differences between Sparks, and an obvious progression of power. It gives Sparks a hug advantage over players not building marv...

Re: Victoriana outside of the Victorian Era

This weeks post for Their Finest Hour (Victoriana set during the early days of World War II) is all about period firearms. While fun to write it is incredibly stat heavy. If anyone has any thoughts about the stats given to each weapon I am all ears. Here's the Post: http://skullduggeryinthesmoke.blo...

Re: Victoriana outside of the Victorian Era

The 1920s would be a terrific choice for Victoriana. There's a lot of material thanks to Call of Cthulhu. Weapon stats would be easy to transfer, and you'd have a great source of adventures. Just pick a chapter from Masks of Nyarlathotep. A chapter? Pick any page! For Their Finest Hour, I lost a lot...

Re: Victoriana outside of the Victorian Era

If I might suggest inspiration, the movie book of Eli has a pretty clear cut set of postapocalyptic social classes. Anyone able to flourish enough to be wealthy in that environment should be scary because of what they had to do to rise up.
Take Michal Gambon's character for example.
