A world like our world but it's history is not our own.

The Great War began in 1914 with the assasination of Franz Ferdinand much like in our world but things took a differant turn, the war was not to end until 1954, not because of a victory or a peace treaty, but because there was no-one left capable of fighting it, the world was devistated, ruined by Atomic, Chemical and Biological weapons.

Eventualy one man would rise uniting the scatered peoples of the British Isles, Victor the first, claiming to be the last son of the Royal Family, with passion and vigor he set about rebuilding The United Kingdom.

Victor was of the opinion that things were perfect before the turn of the 19th century during the Victorian era, and so set about building his kingdom in that image, any post Victorian technology was banned or at least a very distorted view of what Victorian technology was, most historical records having been lost in the War and it's aftermath.

Victor was suceeded by his son Victor II who looked to rebuilding the British Empire.

After many years the Neo Victorian Empire rules a large portian of the planet and has become rather tyranical, the only force reprisenting freedom are the Skyloft Cities, dens of pirates tho they are.

This is a place for me to work on rebuilding the setting for a steampunk RPG that I ran meny years ago, The original game never finished and I would like at some point to have another go at it with my current game group.

Much of this information is very work in progress and subject to change, the world name for example is a placeholder as I never had a good idea for it.

The player characters will be pirates/rebels trying to get by and possibly changing or causing the overthrow of the Neovictorian empire.

The Upper Class

The upper class are descended from the grand families who supported the first Emperor in his dream. Despite the luxuries, the wealthy are still restricted. Aside from the IAN, upper class people are confined to the city. Their diet is better. Men usually go on to work as administrators or officers in the IAN. A few train as physicians, to attend to other rich folks, or vicars. Most don’t work at all leading a life of leisure. Upper class women are expected not to work. They might be permitted a small hobby and may attend social functions and balls. They may even have an allowance, to spend in the trade blocks. But women are generally encouraged to stay at home.

Common Etiquette rules

Upper class Neovictorian society is governed by strict social rules. Appearances are everything, manners should be adhered to and vulgarity is to be avoided. Many topics are considered not fit for polite discussion. There is an accepted order to the day, and it is expected that the household is presentable and acts with decorum at all times. People do gossip, but they are careful with whom they gossip (and don’t do it in front of the servants).
Children are expected to be seen and not heard, and sparing the rod is said to spoil the child.

Common Taboos



Gender Ideals

Neo Victorians are an unfortunatly gender biased lot, Men should be stowick, unflappable, strong and the providers for their household. Women should be demure, obediant and consern themselves with house keeping and raising the children. This attitude is less preverlent among the poor and their are plenty who buck these traditions.
