About the adventure

1889, London, England. The City & South London Railway is digging the first deep-level tube line, hoping to open next year with the newly invented electric trains. But a track worker failed to return from the depths, and searchers found only his grisly corpse. Something is down there.....

How to prepare

microphone required, webcam optional. When you register, you'll get a link to the Role table, asking you to make a (free) account. At game time, click "join live table" and "mic on" - else we'll be unable to communicate! We don't use or need Discord for this game, but if you have questions or trouble logging in, will reach me.

What I provide

Confusion, mayhem, mirth and panic.

Gameplay details

Radiance is a streamlined d20 game that combines traditional fantasy with steampunk and sci-fi elements. The world is similar to Earth of 1912, but with wizards, cultists, monsters, mad scientists, and such. If you've played D&D or Pathfinder, you already know the mechanics - but be prepared to be surprised and delighted by the options available!
