Re: Racial identity

This is correct. The Awakening happened in the course of a single month, with elves, dwarves, snarks (orks), and trolls all pretty much appearing at once, as the Boojum races. Thus, any Boojum playable as a character was base-stock human until two years ago, unless they've changed more recently. The...

The Bartholomew Fire Brigade map of London from 1899. This is the reference map we're using for writing the London Sourcebook. Nearly twenty years' difference gives us the advancement in London that we're looking for, as the game assumes a minimum of 5 years' technological advancement, and often mov...

Re: General information on the Industrial Revolution

I can give you several more. I'm currently reading Judith Flanders' "The Victorian City", which is jammed full of useful information, even if half the book is about London before 1850. I just finished the first of the Matthew Hervey novels by Allan Mallinson, which again is set much earlier than the...

Re: Romanticism

If you;d like to write up something on it, 500 to 1000 words, it could be a blog entry at some point perhaps.

Re: Romanticism

Interesting thought, but magic does not return to Earth until 1877, which is a quarter century more or less after the glory days of the Romantic movement. Perhaps there could be some kind of revival, a Neo-Romantic sort of thing? Oh dear, now I'm seeing Midge Ure in steampunk togs...
