Because you asked for it - THE FULL SIZED CASTLE FALKENSTEIN CORE RULEBOOK IS COMING BACK! The award-winning original Victorian fantasy rpg has been scheduled for republication in a pocket edition, but the swashbuckling alternate 19th century background, innovative playing-card based systems and new, simplified LARP rules just won't fit in one pocket. Instead we will be re-releasing the original book (soft-bound only) and publishing a new dedicated LARP book a little farther down the line. Look for the Castle Falkenstein core book in January, but as usual we will post the date the reprint begins and the shipping date on the web site when we know them.SPELLNAPPED!
WHEN 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...
IT'S A NOVEL. IT'S A GAME. It's both. It's Castle Falkenstein, an amazing journey
into 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 the Victorian Age. But with Castle
Falkenstein the story never ends, as you too take up sabre and spell to
adventure in a distant world on the other side of the mysterious Faerie Veil: a world of
swashbuckling fantasy, high romance, and magickal technology. The world of Castle
Castle Falkenstein is RTG's newest and most original game line. Since it has been introduced, it has received critical reviews from throughout the gaming community, and has won 2 awards (the Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Rules of 1994 & the Nigel D. Findley memorial Award for Best Role-Playing Product of 1995).
