Victorian Games for Sale

There are plenty of sales at the GM's Day sale at DriveThruRPG. At the time of this writing I found over 8,000 pdfs. Some I didn't even know about.

Here are a list of my favorite Victorian Era games that are not Ghosts of Albion.

Castle Falkenstein - the original weird Victoria.  Great game.
Cthulhu by Gaslight - the horror classic.  Gothic horror + Lovecraftian horror = win.
Gaslight Victorian Fantasy (OGL Edition) and
Gaslight Victorian Fantasy (Savage Worlds Edition)  - Victorian game that you can shape how you wish.  Compatible with 1000s of other products.
Rippers - Savage Worlds Victorian horror tech
Victoriana: 1867 Edition - the original version
Victoriana 2nd Edition Core Rulebook - the updated and far superior version
Abney Park's Airship Pirates - alt Victorian high concept based on the albums and Victoriana's rules
Space: 1889 - The original trip to space, based on H.G. Welles and Jules Verne stories/
Space 1889: Red Sands - the new updated Savage Worlds version
The Kerberos Club (Savage Worlds Edition) - your characters need a place to go
Etherscope - and a way to tie all these worlds together.

All of these games are great fun in their own right, but I like them all and combine bits and pieces of them with Ghosts of Albion.

Grab them all while they are on sale.

I have a wonderfully battered copy of Castle Falkonberg. It's funny and immersive and I keep hoping to find a chance to use it.

Yeah, Castle Falkenstein is a fun little book.

And Adventures in Oz: Fantasy Roleplaying Beyond the Yellow Brick Road is part of the sale, too.
