1888. London. The city is gripped by fear. A terror going by the name of Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets. Will anyone be able to bring this terrible serial killer to justice? Hopefully you can, as that's your job in 5th Evolution: Whitechapel, a new 5th Edition RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Go beyond medieval fantasy with 5th Evolution: Whitechapel by Limitless Adventures! Play as gaslight anti-heroes racing to stop the world's most famous serial killer before he strikes again. This 5th edition adventure contains an 8-page comic, a 5e sandbox of London's Whitechapel district in 1888, dozens of encounters, and rules for creating gaslight heroes.


  • An 8-page comic
  • 24 Victorian 5E encounters set in 1888 London
  • 10 Whitechapel locations
  • Detailed Whitechapel map
  • Gaslight 5e Character sheets
  • 6 Gaslight character archetypes (Doctor, Mountebank, Pugilist, Scholar, Scoundrel, & Soldier)
  • Approx 50 pages total

5th Evolution (5Evo) takes the wildly popular 5e game mechanics and applies them to new genres. 5Evo products are a marriage of comics and roleplaying. 5th Evolution is intended for gamers who enjoy the 5E game engine and would like to use it in other genres. 5E has been extensively play-tested, and is easy for new players to learn. Many players familiar with 5E are hesitant to learn a new system, and 5Evo allows them to explore new worlds and genres of play seamlessly.

The campaign is just up and over its funding goal, but you've gotta be quick to catch Jack the Ripper, there's only a day and change left before he escapes.
