Victor’s Era began as an alternative setting to my initial game, Frankenstein Atomic Frontier. It is set in an alternate 19th century Earth where the end of Shelley’s novel was re-written. Victor and the monster live, come to terms, and return to London with Walton. There, Victor marries Queen Victoria, bringing with him a scientific revolution that soon places Frankenstein Monsters as wage-slave workers in the factories of Victorian London. Victor’s Era has been around for a while, it was first introduced publically in the Frankenstein Atomic Frontier Spare Part “Amputation” after I had ditched the idea as valid. Amputation got a positive enough response to encourage me to start working on it again. But it didn’t really get anywhere. After years of languishing in production hell and a fun but only somewhat successful round of playtest, I’ve adopted a different approach. I am currently writing for Victor’s Era an entirely new system that will not only evoke the feeling of the Victorian Era and the low-biopunk/steampunk blend of the setting but actively situate the characters into the 19th century during character creation. At least that is the plan… third time is the charm, after all.
