What, you may rightly ask, is Castle Falkenstein?

Castle Falkenstein is a role playing game set in the Victorian past of an alternate world, known as New Europa. As its basic premise, the game imagines that the best fantasy and speculative fiction of the Victorian Age -- the works of Verne, Wells, Grimm, Stevenson, Stoker, Conan Doyle, and Wilkie for example -- are true. Magic works, and magicians are debonair members of secret societies and lodges with arcane plans. The Wild Hunt of Faerie rides in moonlight in hussar's uniforms, and Faerie lords and ladies waltz gracefully at society balls. Dragons occasionally walk the streets as urbane gentlemen and discerning collectors of art. Dwarfs are skilled engineers and inventors who bring to life the fantastic machines of the age -- always on the lookout for a wealthy and influential patron to help them bring their ideas to fruition! Nemo and his Nautilus indeed prowl the seas, and Verne is France's Minister of Defense.

Nonetheless, social graces, a quick wit, a dazzling coiffure, or a smart uniform can frequently accomplish more in Society than a spell or a gadget. In this game, your appointment book can be as powerful as your spell book, and your rapier wit can do more damage than your blade!
