Post Victorious Kickstarter!
I've just been informed that the Victorious Kickstarter will go live February 15, 2015. At last!

We know you guys have a lot of choices out there, and if you feel that Victorious is something you can support we will do our best to make it worth your while in stretch goals and general swag. ;)

Lobo, I think you're more excited about this Kickstarter than Jim Wampler of Goodman Games. Last I recall, he's really pumped. ;)

FANTASTIC start!

Am I correct that the first add on is basically a "Aurora's Whole Realms Catalog" for Victorious?

I think so, I'd thought of it more as a Sears & Roebuck catalog for Steampunk contraptions. ;) Not having read that book, I'll make the assumption it is.

I have a Steampunk Horror setting of my own that my novel series I am writing is based on that could be added at some point...my third novel, 'The Axis of Shadows' was just released. I wrote these many, many years ago, but the project is sort of ongoing. It is dark, full of conspiracies and wild and weird technologies, with older, traditional views on the Upiri (Vampires) and Werewolves. I call the series 'The Silent War' and is steeped in the 18th and 19th Century mentality.

I'm generally not a 'steampunk' reader, but your books look interesting. I'll have to add them to my need to read list.

For the kick starter, ..... I hat to say all I could afford was the PDF level. I wish I could have done more, but money is too tight. Especially looking at the stretch goals. I'd have jumped on them if I could ...

However, you do have the honor of being my first 'kick starter' I've never supported anything vis a kick starter, so it may be a drop in the bucket but it is my first drop :lol:

Congrats on finally getting it finished and ready to fund!

With my Codices and adventure modules I haven't had the time to write it out over the years into a proper book, but it was always an option. Now with Victorious out there would be a rules engine that I wouldn't have to write in addition to the others I have created. That would save some time and effort on my part greatly!

I was never into "steam punk" at all, but Mad Monocle Mike showed me just how cool the feel and imagery can be, and I've been into it ever since. I really wouldn't look at Victorious as traditional steam punk, its really a world where Supers really exist, so the technology has simply taken a leap in odd ways due to the super brains that have been born. So the world is still the Victorian period, but there are people running around wearing suits of "iron", shooting ray guns of some kind, and even flying! Plus you can still have your Dr Strange or Dr Fate types as well. The over all world, though, is the Victorian era, trying to deal with all these crazies running around.

Tree, thanks for the explanation.

However, in general, I'm not into suppers games either. Steampunk/heroes what ever you label it, my first reaction is it isn't a setting I could pull off GMing. My mind just isn't set up to picture a story in detail that would make a good game in that setting. That said, I'm sure I'd love a game that had a GM that could invoke that feel and imagery.

Now, what does draw me to the game (in addition to all the good words you and others have said about it) is the grim side of the game. As you know I habitually play the good guy. However there is also a dark grim/horror element to my personality and interests (back in the day Beyond the Supernatural was my second favorite game and the one I GMed the most) With that I could see myself running a game - in the distant future - using the rules to run a grim, Colonial-Victorian setting.

Hey Lurker,

Rather than go into the tired litany of "Its your game, run it how you want!" I'm going to try and actually be helpful. ;)

I understand where you're coming from. When I first started Victorious as simply a campaign setting rather than its own RPG, I took several ideas for adventures from Chaosium's Cthulhu by Gaslight. While I'm not a "Dark-Horror-Everything" kind of GM, I do think the occasional horror keeps players on their toes and realizing that the world isn't sweetness and light. I even provide a section of the Victorious rulebook called "Victoria's Secret: The Darker Side of the Victorians". This is to remind people that "Mary Poppins" and "My Fair Lady" are no more the genuine Victorian era than "Leave it to Beaver" was the American 1950s.

Ask Liz about her heroine Dancer having to fight two Hunting Horrors at Sandringham or the Shoggoth loose in the Blessing Asylum and you'll get quite a story of horror!

Mike

Yeah, well, if you don't like the Supers genre in the first place, anything will be a hard sell. Next time I get burned out on fantasy, hopefully I will run a Victorious game as my replacement to get over the burn out, and hopefully you will get to play in it, then hate me for giving you yet another genre of RPG's to spend money on!
