Venus has been terraformed, and the Victorian era reigns.
A future, one thousand years
from now, where an echo of the Victorian past thrives on Venus. Terraformed Venus
sees the culture of the era of high technology as one of innumerable dangers. Dominated by New Berlin,
the most advanced society on the planet, the nation and city-states of Venus
imitate both the technology and culture of the Victorian Era. As nations chafe
under the yoke of New Berlin, war breaks out--driving a world so much like the
past into a future entirely unlike our own.
