The Victorian era is unlike any before or since. Imperialism and war draw lines across the globe while scientific discovery and remorseless industrialization leave indelible marks on its people, from the cutthroats in the streets to Queen Victoria herself.

This is the world of Charles Darwin and Charles Babbage, steam power and workhouses, Florence Nightingale and Ada Lovelace, Stanley and Livingstone, Jekyll and Hyde, Holmes and Watson, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Charles Dickens and Jack the Ripper.


You are holding a roleplaying game; a game that allows you to create tales of action, intrigue, and the supernatural in which you are the hero.

Victoria asks you to choose sides and take up arms in the battle for the fate of the British Empire, or to forgo the decision and forge your own path, altering the course of history.

Inside you will find:

  • the complete Hazard resolution system
  • quickstart guides
  • fully worked and broken-down examples of every skill in use and combat using actual examples of play
  • a working background for running games in victorian times distilled from countless hours of research. The background covers everything from crime and punishment to the correct clothes to walk down the street in.
  • a rich secret back-story full of hooks detailing the history and machinations of two powerful yet shadowy organizations vying for control of the Empire.
  • a large (optional) chapter containing lots of information for incorporating supernatural elements in your tale and providing plenty of grist for your creative mill.
  • an entire section dedicated to the art of GMing including a step-by-step examination of a process you can follow to create an absorbing tale every time, no matter what system you employ.
  • a sample tale that showcases all these elements. A Victorian Prometheus  brings the characters face to face with not only these organizations but with abominations wrought from the brilliant, tortured but completely insane mind of Dr. Cornelius Knox.

Buy Victoria today! As a stand-alone game, source book or GMing resource, you won’t be disappointed.

Victoria is the premier game from Daniel Hodges and Hazard Gaming. Unlike most of the games I have reveiwed, Victoria is focused on running a game in the historical Victorian Era. So focus on class, station and no magic (well...mostly). Victoria [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
