Victoria is widely known for its dangerous landscapes outside the capitols. Horrors and demons of gigantic proportions lurk there. Thank the lord for the steam-powered trains running through those environments. They will blast right through those abominations if you want to get to another city.
Would you buy a ticket? Or would you take your chances without boarding one of the trains?
Today we defined the core book layout and the 15 preset playable classes for Far Haven (fantasy) and discussed how the critters should visually differ for the Abominations (Far Haven), Demon mutations (Victoria), and alien fauna (Sleeping Dragon).
Yes Clocks have souls, demon souls, and if a demon soul can survive the death of a demon and be bound to a clock, it would only be natural if clock-souls can be re-bound in a similar way. Oh the woes of such an unnatural approach to immortality.
Yes, we know now! Our vamps and wolves can create others, and it is going to be totally messy! Also, we completely reworked magic to work the same in the Steampunk and Fantasy world even though they both think it works totally different. Looking forward to the moment when these worlds collide.
We had a fun week: we settled on the 4 city states of Victoria with their own unique cultures, religions and governments and worked on playable Vampires and Werewolves. We can tell you, our vampires are much like classic Victorian vampires, but, with an Æther Void twist. Werewolves are coming, and we now know how ‘clocks’ are animated 🙂
This week we had heated discussions on whether we wanted our game system to be revolving around classes or backgrounds. Even though this was mainly a discussion about cosmetics, it was important to us on how we communicate the game to the player. Lastly we also worked on the Spell Calculator, had a sneak peak at Conchita and Conchito the Dwarves and are working on Steampunk humans and playable vampires!
A Clockmaker working on his ‘clock’. It is astonishing to behold an uncivilised society that has mastered technology to create complex robotics, using nothing more than steam power and spring-operated gears. How they are capable of creating A.I.’s this advanced is yet a mystery.
Intruiging! These people have fully forgotten their roots. Popular belief has it that mankind fell from heaven in sin, and is now in purgatory awaiting judgement. Fits nicely with all the talk about demons around here.
