Victorian Dreadful

Still getting organized!


This game is my newest and the one I am most focused on getting started.  It is a ‘Home brew’ system that is the bastardized child of AD&D 1st, 2nd and 3rd along with elements of GURPS, Call of Cthulhu, other GM’s rules and my own twisted ideas.

It is primarily intended to be played online, either by email or chat.  It is new, so prospective players be warned, you are play testing as we go!


It is set primarily in Victorian England in 1890, though some travel may ensue.  It is a Low Magic campaign and players accustomed to lots of magic and the associated powers will be disappointed.  It is also a game in which combat, at least lethal combat, should not be your first option.  The penalty for Murder is Death by Hanging!  And guns are lethal!  If you are familiar with the TV show ‘Penny Dreadful’ then you will have a feel for what this campaign will be like.

The game uses Classes, levels and experience points.  There are changes from the tradtional D&D classes and a new class has been added as well.
