The Imperial Age: London
Publisher: Adamant Entertainment

A history and overview of the greatest city of the British Empire. What I liked were the inclusion of the real maps from the time, but improved over how they were presented in the India book.

There is even a brief description of some of the neighborhoods, Gentlemen's Clubs and important sites. Background on the Peelers is also included.

The book is an overview and doesn't go into great detail in any subject. Though it is not supposed to be a textbook or a history book, a little more would have been nice.
All in all though it is a fine book. Perfect for any Victorian game since the d20 content is minimal.

All the Imperial Age books are all well written and features art from the age, either public domain art and paintings as well as some original art. In all cases the art is very evocative of the time and very well done.

The books are all easy to read, with clean layout and font sizes. They can be printed with ease without killing your printer cartridge.

This has an enormous amount of information useful to GMs and players. Maps, occupations with salaries, descriptions of the areas and major facilities, the currency, proper ettiquette for what you call the nobility, servants, etc. A veritable plethora of great information!

I like Imperial Age London. While you could go on-line and find all of this information on your own, this product removes that tedious work and combines it all in one neat product.

The layout is simple and lacks much in the way of frills. The art is clipart from the period with a few black and white photos thrown in. The color maps are authentic maps of the day.

The flaws are few but substantial. The book lacks a proper index or table of contents, and the pages are not even numbered. I hope they make one available as a free pdf to those that bought it.

Waste of money, halve the material is a 1899 map and street register of London and then a rundown of all the bouroughs.
Nothing one couldn't find online.

The Imperial Age: London is one of the best little supplements I have seen out there in a time. At least to my taste. Built around a historical Victorian London guide, which adds to the feeling of credibility it then expands. In ends up detailing too the basics of Victorian society, the government, the workhouse system and even how you are supposed to behave in a club.

This is about the real London, not a steampunked version of it, but even steampunk lovers can make use of it. If you are into XIX century roleplaying, you can't go wrong with this one for 13 bucks!
