High Adventure in the Steam Age!

CastleFalkensteinCover300dpiWhen computer game designer Tom Olam found himself sorcerously shanghaied by a rogue Wizard and a Faerie Lord, little did he suspect that he would soon become the pivotal force in the struggle to control an alternate Victorian Universe. But before the deadly game could end, he would first have to battle gigantic Landfortresses, outwit Dragons, romance a beautiful Adventuress and defeat the Evil legions of a Dark Court determined to destroy him at all costs. Then maybe, just maybe, he could find a way home again.

Enter a world of another universe just a few steps away from our own; a place where Dragons and Steampower rule the skies, Faerie Lords duel atop the battlements, and where the forces of Wizardry and Magick meet the gaslight streets of Sherlock Holmes’ London. This is a place of Swashbuckling Fantasy, High Romance and Alternate History; the world of CASTLE FALKENSTEIN!

  1. Is there a plan to bring this back with a new edition? Is there?!? If there is, I would love to get in on this or even find a way to make it happen with assistance, writing, proofreading…someone’s blood. Not mine. I like mine, but…I love Castle Falkenstein more.

  2. Another vote for a Falkenstein reprint here. I loved the setting, and would definitely pitch in for either a new edition, or a print run of the original books funded on Kickstarter.

  3. I bought the softcover version when it first came out, and when pages began falling out because of the terrible binding, I bought a hardcover copy off Ebay. Now its pages are falling out worse than the other one. I tried red-gluing it, but it’s still not great. I’d definitely be interested in a 2nd edition, and I’d love to help make it happen with advice or Kickstarter funds. It’s one of the only game books I’ve bought twice. I’d love to make some modifications to the rules, I have lots of ideas, especially preventing players from dumping their hand because the suits don’t match the ability being tested. You might take a look at “Variations on the Great Game” by Fat Goblin Games, there are some good ideas in there too.

    • Hello! First, thank you for loving Falkenstein! Also for the recommendation for Variations on the Great Game. Want to know a secret? We liked it so much we hired the gentleman who transcribed it (J Gray) to work for us! Also, if you will please email j.gray@rtalsoriangames.com we’ll arrange to get you a replacement softcover for CF at no charge. You deserve it!
