Description Edit | History

Publisher Blurb:
There are those who are not content to watch...

Out on the streets are those who have chosen to take up arms for a cause. Some are heroes, fighting the darkness with courage and steel. Others are the very villains they aim to confront. Locked in a secret war these groups are not content to manipulate politics or simply observe. The call to arms has been made, and even if they stand alone they will hold the line against the darkness.

This second part of Faces in the Smoke takes you onto the streets of Victoriana where working class gangs fight for their freedom and fallen heroes and nobles take up arms to right injustice in secret. Once more nothing is as it seems, and you will have to learn quickly how distinguish friend and enemy if you are to survive.

Faces in the Smoke: Shadows and Steel contains:

  • An array of urban based organisations to face your players with in your Victoriana campaign.
  • Full details and statistics for each of these heroes, fallen heroes and outright villains.
  • Secrets and adventure hooks for each order for the Gamemaster to weave into her campaign

Each organisation has an agenda, none are simply good or evil, so they could be either allies or enemies of the player characters depending on how they are approached.

More Information Edit | History

Faces in the Smoke volume 2 'Shadows and Steel' carries on where Volume 1 left off, with an array of more active groups who take to the streets to pursue their agenda.

The organisations to be found in volume 2 are:

The Adventureer's Society
A club of explorers that do more than just talk of old adventures over a cigar.

Agents of the Queen
This loose gathering wants to do something about the horrible inequalities between the classes. However, they have chosen to do so with violence.

The Black Dogs
Seeking to destroy the society that denies them equality, these Beastmen have little to lose and so much to gain.

Briggs' Gang
Mason Briggs loves the challenge and adventure of crime, even though he has all the money he needs.

The Deceivers
From the depths of India, a society of assassins seeks to redress the balance and take recompense in blood for England's arrogance.

Knights of Ludd
The Knights of Ludd seek to reverse the new age of technology by taking up arms against the future.

The Observant Society of the Meek
Charged by the Pope himself, the Meek have hunted the vampires of Carpathia for centuries.

Pan-Asiatic Spice Company
A world-wide airship carrier business battles thieves, pirates and anyone who tries to stop them getting the job done.

Phoenix Squadron
A group of disgraced soldiers looking to redeem themselves in this squadron of Wyvern riders.

The Secret Carnival
The most wondrous spectacle in the city today, but beware, what you are about to see may shock you as much as entertain you.

The Worshipful Order of Horologists
This order of renowned clockmakers create devices of wonder and horror, and woe betide those who try to work without their licence.

The book also reprints the detail on creating organisations from volume 1 and contains a section on creating street gangs in your campaign.
