Canals of the Red Planet
Welcome to the year 1889 and the Victorian age. Taking advantage of the Ether flyer invented by Thomas Edison in 1870 the colonial powers have spread their empires to the inner planets.

You are one of those Earth-men who has made his way to Mars. Maybe you came here for glory, wealth and adventure, were unfortunate to be posted here, hope to bring God's own word to these heathens or maybe you are simply fleeing your problems back home. Whatever your cause you find yourself in Syrtis Major, capital of the British colony on Mars and gateway to an exciting new planet.

Of course this is still the Victorian age so even among adventurers certain social norms are expected and exploitation of the locals, in their best interests of course, is simply a given.

Welcome to the Red Planet. Welcome to Mars.
