We recently announced that we are working on Victoriana for Fifth Edition, which will launch under the Open Gaming License.
We are delighted to announce that Victoriana will also be part of Free RPG Day this year! Our free adventure, Going Underground, gives a taste of the world, with a trip on the very first electrified tube train. Make sure you keep an eye out for it in participating stores on Oct 16th 2021!
As we are launching Victoriana soon under the fifth edition Open Gaming License, we thought Free RPG Day would be the perfect time to give gamers a taste of what is to come!

Victoriana for 5e: Why the 5e Rules and What Changes are We Making?
Why 5e? Simply put, it’s been eight years since Victoriana’s third edition was released and there’s a whole new generation of gamers who may have never heard of Victoriana. We wanted to make this RPG immediately accessible to them and others by using familiar mechanics that allow players to quickly delve into Victoriana’s awesome setting! As long-time fans will note (and I count myself amongst them, having picked up the first edition when it was on the ‘new rack’ at my FLGS!),Victoriana has always been more about its setting than its mechanics.
