WELCOME TO AD OBSCURA a belle epoque ecstasy of the uncanny
London, 1884. Queen Victoria sits the British throne. William Ewart Gladstone is Prime Minister. And steam is the power that runs the world.
And no where is booming with more steam and power than the fast-paced city of London, where the rich carry on with their high-society lives while the poor rot in the slums. But there’s more going on in London than just the vast divides of the social classes. It’s been just over have a century since the Supernatural Integration, when beings of the unnatural entered public awareness and became the talk of nations. Now society has become a tapestry of mundane humans, vampiric nobles, gentry that sprout fur and fangs during the fool moon, and men who can make themselves vanish before your very eyes. Between all the magic, the science, and the alchemical innovation pervading London, the 19th century is shaping up to truly be an era of miracles, marvels, and more than a little danger.
WELCOME TO AD OBSCURA, a supernatural steampunk RPG, set at the apex of the Victorian Era, where the nights are dark, the city is booming, and one can never be quite sure just what one is holding court with.
