    I know it looks interesting, but not sure about the game engine itself. The setting’s right up my alley (victorian horror skirmish game), but that’s about all I know.

    If you go to the website you can check out the QSR rules and scenario and some setting info and images of their first wave of releases.

    Hi all

    I helped edit the rules and wrote the additional material.

    If you want to know more just ask and I’ll tell you what I can.

    It is a gothic/steampunk Victorian skirmish game with an in built campaign system. The game has four major factions and some of these can be split into sub-factions (the Gentlemen’s Clubs for instance have good, evil and neutral groupings)

    To start playing you need around five to eight models (the boxed sets have plenty to start playing a campaign) and these can be added to with special characters and mercenaries.

    The mechanics are designed to be straightforward but with twists along the way like Arcane Powers and invoking special occurrences and ,as you would expect, there are lots of equipment options to really tailor your Faction.

    Hope that helps a bit.
