So my wife wants to run a Girl Genius type game.
Two Mad inventors clash over a quite European town in early 1800's. Using Frankenstein monsters, automotons, a steam machine maybe a vampire, etc.
Need some rules so she cam run a con style game

How about Buck Surdus GASLIGHT? There is a free version you can look at.

You and Your wife are mad. Mad. I says!!!!!

Please do don't get players talk in Jagger tongue.

I have run some games using Sword and the flame with a large random event Deck. I have always want to do this as huge Campaign style Game at HC.

I have done this with hordes of the thing. Here are pics of war of the worlds set in 1898. Take out the Martians and you've got what you want.

If a player would command a handful of figures – say, Doctor Darling and her 4 trusty assiatants, or Professor Kaos and his Koons of Evil, then the Two Hour Wargames rules are worth a look. They have a free "lite" version, and they are endlessly adaptable.

I would LOVE to see a couple/three of In Her Majesty's Name companies for this… *sigh*

GASLIGHT or In Her Majesty's Name would be my recommendation.
