Rippers Resurrected: Collateral Evil
A Victorian Life
Rippers is a world very similar to our own in Victorian times. The late 19th century is a time of great opportunity and rapid change set against a backdrop of tradition and a seemingly inflexible class system. Victorian life is a curious blend of contradictions: of ancient customs and modern technological advances, of traditional beliefs and novel scientific inquiry, of self-made men of business and a hereditary landed aristocracy.
It is a time of traditional values and double standards. Conditions change rapidly in large centers of civilization, teeming with bustling life, but in more remote and rural areas some cultural mores have remained in place for centuries.
