Because releasing the RPGNow Hot List #1 Starblazer Adventures last week wasn't enough...


It is the year 1867, and it is a time of revolution.

The new science has done more than bring incredible technologies into the homes of everyday people. It has brought with it a new way of looking at the world. A way based on observation and logic that threatens the ancient dogma of Aluminat church teachings.

New political ideas are sweeping across Europe. Bismark 'The Iron Chancellor' is uniting the might of Prussia and the social order of Europe is threatened by talk of Communism and Bolshevism. The industrial revolution seems unstoppable. New technology appears at terrifying speed. Machines are being crafted that seem capable of impossible feats. Many worry that mankind is becoming enslaved to the vast industrial machines that belch smoke into the streets of London.

In the supernatural world, the forces of order and chaos clash once more as the planes align. Their eternal battle reaches once more into the hearts and minds of mortals.

You are a part of the revolution, whether you are born to privilege in the salons of the upper classes, or on the streets in the darkened rookeries of the city. Around you is a darkness that lurks not only in the alleys and back streets, but also in the clubs and estates of the rich and powerful.

The power to make a difference is in your hands, it could be money and privilege, science or even sorcery. You have chosen to be on the front line of the new age; but will you fight against the changes or join the revolution?

...and the social order of Europe is threatened by talk of Communism and Bolshevism.


Huh? Communism in 1867 I can understand. Bolshevism? The Russian SDLP has split with the same ideological differences as it did in the real world some 40 years later?

The American Civil War hasn't taken place yet either and the Crimean war is still ongoing. The history has similarities to our own but is vastly different in other places timeline-wise (not to mention magic, steampower, Eldren, Beastmen, Ogres and the like...)

I'd still like to know how the ideology - and name - of Bolshevism has appeared. Historically it appeared in very particular circumstances.

Also the GM is in charge so can monkey with the timelines a further step - e.g. I'm looking at running a Difference Engine scenario some point.
