''Victoriana'' is a fantasy {{tabletop RPG}} from [[http://www.cubicle7.co.uk/our-games/victoriana/ Cubicle 7 Games]], set in VictorianLondon. A few things are different from our history books. Well, a ''lot'' of things. Queen Elysabeth was an [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldren]], the Royal College has a Guild of Sorcery, and some of the lower classes really ''aren't'' human.

!!This tabletop RPG provides examples of:

* CouncilOfAngels: The Heaven of the Aluminat (the local {{Expy}} of Christianity) is run this way. It's even possible to have an angel appear before you in answer to a plea for divine intervention. [[spoiler:It's usually a bad idea, however.]]
* DoppelgangerSpin: ''Faulkner's Millinery and Miscellanea''. The magical Mirrorcane can create three illusionary images of its wielder to distract opponents.
* FallenAngel: The Eloim. No wings left, and getting tossed out of Heaven is about as mind-destroying as you'd expect. The few sane ones are actually pretty nice, though...
* FantasticRacism: Beastmen, Ogres and Halflings can never be part of the upper class in England. Admittedly, the reasons vary... Ogres are completely gullible, Halflings are known thieves... but Beastmen are simply NOKD... Not Our Kind, Dear.
** It does not, however, replace real world racism, which is alive and well. The only thing worse than being a beastman/halfling/ogre is being a foreigner (or worse a foreign beastman/halfling/ogre)
* GaslampFantasy: With a dash of [[SteamPunk Steampunk]] for flavor.
* MarsNeedsWomen: Justified. Among Beastmen, four males are born for every female, so they really ''have'' to look outside the line...
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Half-averted. While classical white-winged angels are around, they're in the minority; most angels look nothing like them. [[spoiler:In fact, most angels of the Aluminat look more like a ClockworkCreature than a servant of goodness and light due to having become [[KnightTemplar tarnished by dogma]].]]
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: While nearly every kind of demon can be found in the Pale, from EldritchHorror to the classic horned and hoofed, most demons appear rather humanoid. This includes a large selection of seductive succubi... after all, given the sexual mores of the Victorian Age, plus the classical sorcerer tendency not to have much experience with women, how better to tempt someone?
* PettingZooPeople: The Beastmen are a perfect example. While their heads are completely animalistic, their bodies are human (if hairy) and tails are optional.
* RainbowMotif: ''Faulkner's Millinery and Miscellanea''. Prismatic Powders come in all seven of the colors, each with a different useful effect.
* SewerGator: The supplement ''Faces in the Smoke Volume Two: Shadows and Steel''. One of the Adventure Hooks for the Fellowship of the Red Pharaoh is hunting for a giant crocodile that has escaped from a London zoo and is hiding in the sewers.
* TrackingDevice: ''Faulkner's Millinery and Miscellanea''. One possible Complication (drawback) for a magical clockwork limb was a tracer device implanted in it, which allowed someone to know where you were at all times.
* VancianMagic: ''Victoriana'' uses the power point system.
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: The lowest of the low among the Beastmen in England are those who resemble rats and weasels; the highest-ranked resemble lions, with dogs close behind (no pun intended).
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the rulebook, which points out that the descriptions of the animal races have little to do with what the animals are ''actually'' like and everything to do with how they're ''perceived''.
