Gaslight – things that go bump in the night!
The year is 1888
The World of Gaslight
Gaslight is a fictional world where technology meets sorcery. Gaslight is a Victorian Fantasy game. It has all the trappings of your standard Sword and Sorcery game mixed with the elements from the classic literature of the period. It is a world inhabited by our darkest nightmares and superstitions. Within you will find Vampires, Beast Men, Werewolves, and Wildlings.
The Victorian Era
The term “Victorian” immediately conjures up images of men in top hats and women in bustles taking a hansom through the foggy, gas lit, cobblestone streets of London. While this is certainly a part of it, the truth is that Great Britain’s presence was felt throughout the world during the Gaslight period. She competed with other European (and native) powers over control of Africa and Asia. She inspired Japan to westernize its society and armies. Across the Atlantic, the former British colonies were also making their power known throughout the world.
While the entire world may not have been controlled by Great Britain during this time, it certainly felt her influence.
