Before you jump from joy, let me to tell you that I don't have a campaign thought up or anything such, I'm just seeing if there is intrest enough to make me come up with one.

I would very much like to run a game of it, I'm fairly open towards where it would be set and what it would be about though.

Masque of the Red Death, for those of you who havent heard of it, is sort of a sequel to the Ravenloft setting, DnD 3.5 at the moment. It takes place on alternative earth ano 1890, very gothic horror and doing the whole Victorian thing is fairly optional considering that a game can be placed anywhere on earth. It takes it's name from an Edgar Allan Poe novel, which makes it very promising  ;)  If you like Frankenstein, Dracula and Dorian Grey for example, Masque of the Red Death might be good.

If it seems intresting I might just have something...

o.O Oh, oh my. Nice to know that people like Ravenloft. Hm maybe I should run a pure Ravenloft game too but then again, Masque of the Red Death is so hard to find...

A pure Ravenloft game would be even more Swoonworthy for me...I've got the core books.  However, I would be thrilled with either.

It sounds fantastic... I'm particularly interested in the notion of a Victorian or (looks around carefully and whispers so the wrong people don't hear) steampunk setting.

*Waves to Ida.* 

I'd prefer a traditional ravenloft game, Gilbert misses you very much, but I'd try Masque of Red Death.

Okay :D

I'll start the planning then.

BTW, any specific suggestions? I heard one voice for the typical Victorian which is always nice... Anyone else? Settlers in the West? Explorers of the deepest Africa (still unexplored and mysterious in this world)? London high society? Country side horror?

I vote for Victorian London myself, but that shouldn't have to exclude the other setting, we could be a well traveled group. :)
Braving the Deep, Dark Africa could be fun for example.

Victorian works for me, but if we find ourselves in other locations as well, I wouldn't mind.

Wow... the anglo-world-view of that era opens up a lot of possibilities, doesn't it? 
I agree with London, with a combination of settings for the social elite and the street urchin... industrial districts, catacombs across Europe, travel to India and Hong Kong..?  Just throwing out ideas.

In case it helps, should you decide to concentrate the timeline on the 1890's era... this provides a helpful snapshot of the decade.

If not, well... what Swedish posted works for me.

I'm really excited about the idea, regardless.

Quite honestly, I'm just delighted to have the opportunity.  It wouldn't take a lot to make me happy setting wise.

Oh thank you Caustic, that will be helpfull I think.


Hmmm, I'll make London the starting point and then from there, the group might go on different journeys with our without visiting in between.

And Swede, that picture will only inspire me of thinking up Houses of Ill Reputée, dens of sin and... Oh wait, those are not threats...

Will do, will do.

Well Nanokihara, it's sort of Ravenloft but not the Ravenloft world. The main evil in the world is a being that came from Ravenloft into an alternative Earth millenia ago and has been plotting from the shadows to take over the world. It uses some of the rules from Ravenloft and the atmosphere is rather alike.

So is this going to be hardcore system, or just loosely based on one?

Just asked her. Seemed it will be loosly based, previous experience good but not required. But maybe I'll let her answer herself, but that was the impression I got.

Hmmmmmmmmmm.  You can just call me Nano, every one else is.  Ravenloft was a strange game, but I always seemed to fit in, but I haven't played in forever.

I might be interested in joining.  I'm not familiar with it either, but the setting sounds cool.
