A New Century. A New Age.

VAULT OF ADEPTS is a pen and paper Role Playing Game of secret societies set in 1900 London. These occult Lodges attracted the elite of London society – poets and politicians, actors and heiresses, alchemists and aristocrats scheming against a backdrop of cut glass, in the age of absinthe.

You play one of these eccentric characters, choose a faction and an agenda – do you want to proceed through the mystic Grades to achieve enlightenment? To take over? To destroy from within? – and speed from location to location to secure ancient knowledge, spread rumours, and foil your opponent’s efforts.

A séance gone horribly wrong. A gentleman approached after a Mason’s meeting with an inquiry if he’d be interested in something more… unconventional. A book dealer looking over an incoming tome, and knowing more than he lets on. Somewhere in London, between Scotland Yard and the Blind Beggar, is the key to someone’s lifelong obsession. Seek it out. But will you use it, sell it, or destroy it?

Throw the best parties, summon demons, and keep it out of the papers!

Watch the gorgeous Kickstarter Video below. The game will also feature many illustrations from Aly Fell  who did the artwork for the Steampunk Tarot and Mechanicals. Direct link to campaign.

Penny Dreadful! Oh my such promise for a new show that has all of the things.

ABOUT THE SERIES (Excerpt from Showcase Website)

Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of  Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.

May the 4th Be With You, Steampunk Star Wars

A quick google image search for Steampunk Star Wars brings Bjorn Hurri to the top of the list. Check out his website for a really great collection of character illustrations.

Then I saw this Otis Frampton Steampunk Bobba Fett con commission from Wizard World on Twitter and decided to make a post. May the 4th Be With You!

20 DC Steampunk Comic Covers.

Batman and Two-Face #28 variant by Matteo Scalera, Image via CBR
All 20 DC Steampunk Comics Covers over on Nerdist. Some of them are silly, but I like the two above the best (actually I like Batgirl the best, but I couldn't find a larger enough image for the blog.) Also, I'm assuming that the names attached to the images are based on the comics themselves and not the image because come on, even I know that's not Two-Face --it's Robin!
