I’m very pleased to announce that Paper Trail is now available to download for free on Skullduggery in the Smoke’s resources page. The PDF contains forty-eight visiting and business cards ready to be printed out for Victorian role-playing games. You can download it here or on the resources page.
I knowingly veered away from historical accuracy in a few cases to make these cards a bit more user-friendly. For example, while some visitor cards displayed the owner home address, it was not as common as the cards in Paper trail suggest. I also gave only a street name and number to avoid setting the cards in a specific city or town. Most obviously, Paper Trail is a black and white PDF to be a bit more printer friendly. Some of the colors used in actual Victorian Visiting Cards have to be seen to believe.
I hope you enjoy Paper Trail and use these cards at your own gaming table. Few gamemaster tricks help immersion as quickly and simply like handing a paper prop to a player. If you do use these cards in your own games, I would love to hear about it.
