Hi again this is my Second Idea for a Homebrew setting and hopeful official setting a Victorian D&D, inspired by Iron Kingdoms RPG, Mask of Red Death RPG, Dishonored Video Game series and Bioshock In video game.

Magic conflicts with 19th century Science and Tech, so Alchemy has be use to standard AD&D 2nd spells, think Vigors from Bioshock or Iron Kingdoms.

The Timeframe is 1850 to 1870, The problem I have is with the Gods and Spelljamming.

I need AD&D Kits suitable for this setting and help with the world building,

The French of this setting are Elves,

If elves are French, what are dwarves and halflings?

Dwarves are Scottish. Did you not see Return of the King?

Love is a lie. Only hate endures. Light is blinding. Only in darkness do we see clearly.

"Oh, you think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but.. blinding. The shadows betray you because they belong to me." - Bane The Dark Knight Rises

Well unlike Victoriana RPG which has Elves, Dwarves, and other D&D types of Races in Victorian Earth,


Now in this setting the Gods of Humans are Devived between the Old ones which are standard like D&D led by Goddess Magic, these Deities have bin pushed aside by most of the Humans in this world, the Spells in this world take the form of Alchemy Formulas and Runes carved on Objects such as Steel.

Gloriana is a British like Goddess, she is based on this Setting's version of London, In life she was a Queen that ruled over the British like Humans in death she is Worshiped as this settings version of the Church of England and how the current Monarch is the head of it.

Well, have you ever played Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura? As it also takes place in a pseudo-Victorian setting, and shows the industrial evolution in a fantasy setting.

I think it may be a very good source of inspiration.

Mr. Whitehead tends to start projects then give up. We entertained him and his book projects on the Weber Forums until even the best of persons finally gave up.

There are Wizards, there is Magick and then there is Thay.

Arcanum is the best.
I've been playing it for going on 2 decades now.

There are Wizards, there is Magick and then there is Thay.
