Time Marches On

It’s probably the historian in me, but one issue I’ve had with running a long-term Victorious chronicle is that of time moving onward. I suppose it’s a problem to any historical RPG, be it Godlike’s World War II, Call of Cthulhu’s 1920s, or Colonial ...

Looking Backward from 2000: 1894-5
