Victoriana is a steampunk RPG from Cubicle 7. Its newly announced 4th edition will be a 5e book. That’s to say, it’s converting to the 5e that powers D&D.
Victoriana 5e lineages
Humans, in the classic D&D-fantasy style sense, are known as Daoine (Duine in singular). The flavour of this Lineage is influenced by Celtic and Irish touches, as the name suggests.
Elves, if you like, are the longest-lived Lineage and are strongly connected to the world’s magic. The Quintessence in their veins.
Ogres, as they were previously, have changed the most through the editions. They are tall, strong and bluntly honest.
Victoriana 5e scoops dwarves, gnomes and halflings from earlier editions into one Lineage known as Khaldi. They’re typically hardy and industrious by nature.
Puca / Pucks
Anthropomorphic animals with frames similar to Daoine or Khaldi but with apparent editions like fox ears or rabbit tails.
Cubicle 7 says these are roughly similar to fantasy orcs and, like the ogres, this Lineage has gone through many changes. In-game, naturalists have only recently started treating this Lineage separately from the Puca. Some Muirloch, but not all, have animal traits. All are nocturnal in nature, and many with an affinity for engineering.
Cubicle 7 has art for most of these Lineages and named characters, which might become a feature in the new core book once it’s out.
