The Imperial Age: True20 Edition

Watermarked PDF

Adventure in the Victorian Era!

The Imperial Age is a genre book for True20 Adventure Roleplaying set in the late Victorian era, circa 1880-1900. This book contains everything you need to run True20 games set in the last two decades of the Nineteenth Century.

The Imperial Age is a toolkit. You can add or discard as much as you like, based on the needs of your campaign. The 270-page rulebook features:

  • Genre information, a brief overview of the world of the late Nineteenth Century, and a timeline.

  • An in-depth look at London, useful for campaigns set in the seat of the British Empire.

  • New hero creation rules that are broadly applicable to all Imperial Age campaigns. Here you'll find new backgrounds, skills, feats, drawbacks, and equipment. We also offer a hard currency option for Narrators that prefer to conduct business in hard currency rather than wealth levels.

  • Fighting styles appropriate for Victorian heroes, including Sherlock Holmes' baritsu, as well as dramatic rules for chases.

  • Chapters covering several Victorian-era genres, including Adventure Stories (including rules for mass combat and traps), Detective Stories (featuring information on crafting mysteries), Horror Stories (with rules on fear, terror, and corruption), Steam Stories (including rules for inventions), and much more!

Requires True20 Adventure Roleplaying by Green Ronin Publishing for Use.

The Imperial Age: True20 Edition is a RPG Setting Sourcebook from Adamant Entertainment. I have had a few PDFs in my archives that were given to me to review but due to unforeseen life complications, I was not able to. I felt I owed those products a re [...]

True 20 is becoming the perfect solution for all sorts of Modern d20 based games for me and Imperial Age shows why. The rules are adapted from the Imperial Age supplements for d20, so a lot here has been seen before, but all of it looks new through the [...]

I can't much to the superlatives mentioned in the earlier review - this book shows how a system like True20 can be used to its fullest potential. The author takes pains to mention how period films and literature can be integrated into campaigns. A good [...]

A great setting just got better-- a must for True20 fans, this book contains loads of new backgrounds, role tweaks etc. This is a "smart" use of the True20 mechanics. Imperial Age doesn't present 20 useless "new roles," but gives su [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
