The Setting

Imagine Jane Austen dabbling in science and steam technology. Then imagine P.G. Wodehouse suddenly dropped vampires into the Drones Club. It’s kinda steampunk (but not too dark and riddled with technobabble) and kinda urban fantasy (without the modern setting), shaken up with a jot of romance and a whole lot of comedy. Ridiculously delicious fashions and obsession with etiquette seem the perfect setting into which to foist vampires (dictating such things) and werewolves (chaffing against them) not to mention steam technology.

Importantly, there’s no magic. None at all. Instead, Victorian scientists are struggling to understand vampires, werewolves, and ghosts using the scientific standards of the day. This results in steampunk gadgets and crazy theories centered on the existence of the soul.
