Description Edit | History

Subtitle: The Scientific Romance Role Playing Game

From the back of the PDF book:

COMPLETE RULES FOR ADVENTURES IN VICTORIAN AND EDWARDIAN FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION

PROBABLY the first shareware tabletop RPG, Forgotten Futures has been published on disk and on line since 1993. What you see is what you get: everything that you need to play can be downloaded without charge, although you are asked to pay a registration fee if you find it useful. Registered users are sent the latest release on CD-ROM at least a month before files go on line, and with it additional material such as Victorian and Edwardian fiction, articles and illustrations, advertisements, etc. Currently more than a hundred megabytes of support material are on-line, including worldbooks, adventures, and the novels, articles, and stories on which they are based. The full Forgotten Futures CD-ROM adds more than 300 megabytes of additional background material.

Like all of the core Forgotten Futures RPG material, this PDF is a free download. It contains all of the rules that you’ll need to play the game, including many of the optional “extras” that have been added in various worldbooks and adventures. When you’ve taken a look check out one of the online adventures; Taking the Tunnel is a good start, since it doesn’t need additional background material. After that try one of the worldbooks and its associated adventures. If you enjoy the game, please register or buy the Forgotten Futures CD-ROM. 10% of the fee is donated to Cancer Research UK; so far over £1700 has been raised for charity from this and related projects.

From the back of the printed book:

The Future's Not What It Used to Be...

A century ago, authors dreamed of futures that never came to pass. Forgotten Futures, The Scientific Romance Role Playing Game, explores these discarded possibilities; the futures that could never have been, and the pasts that might have led to them.

This book contains the Forgotten Futures rules, period historical background, surveys on dinosaurs, spiritualism, and weird science, an introductory adventure involving Queen Victoria and the Channel Tunnel, and a handy rules summary.,
