Victorian Gothick

Post by levied troop » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:55 am

Despite aiming to cut down on my project-specific threads, this one is likely to be done quickly enough (the aim is this year) and be sufficiently self-contained to be worth its own.

The idea is a Victorian Fantasy using Fistful of Lead - Tales of Horror as the ruleset. I was going to use Limehouse as a base but having seen the frankly brilliant work on Lead Adventure Forum set in the East End of London I'm too scared to follow, so this is going to be set in Edinburgh.

Let me introduce you to the citizens of this great city:

Great job so far but not Scottish. Where are the Tams and no tartan in sight.

So very charming. Weird, but charming.

I'm very much liking the dark background.

The Hatter appears to have a box of Smarties around his neck. Is that to attract children?
