Dark Fantasy Roleplaying in a Post-WWII Alternate History Dieselpunk Setting


Katerina and Katya Morozov, having fled Russian persecution of Psycrafters, are the latest addition to the Order of Dark Hearts and the entertainment roster of the Alchimie Noir nightclub in London. The Winter Sisters burlesque act belies the fire and flame both Energy Adepts can control through their Psychic Talents that include among others Incendiary Touch, Fire Lash, Flame Control, and Walk in Fire.

Incendiary Touch (Tier 1) causes your hand to be wreathed with gently undulating wisps of red, green, or violet flames; the color reflective of your Morality: Red for Immoral, Green for Amoral, and Violet for Moral. Anyone you touch suffers a severe burn at the point of contact and it also simply allows you to set fire to things. The light cast by the flames can bring light to the darkness.

Fire Lash (Tier 2) allows to you reach out to any fire present, perhaps simply the flame from a lighter, and bring into existence a wieldable 15-foot long whip of dancing flames that strikes opponents inflicting both fire damage and excruciating pain. Unlike a physical whip the movement is controlled by your mind and as such does not require any Skill with a whip. Although unnecessary many practitioners physically mimic the use of a real whip. As you increase in Rank you become able to project the “handle” of the whip at a distance.

Flame Control (Tier 2) provides control over the movement of flames from a single fire source, directing it as you see fit. You could move through a corridor filled by flames by simply pushing them aside. Or perhaps pull the flames from a fireplace to scorch those warming themselves.

Walk in Fire (Tier 1) allows you alter the properties of your skin to move through flames or other areas of intense heat without injury. Whatever you are wearing is, however, not so protected.
