The Tai Pan is the merchant/adventurer of the Hope & Glory universe.
Paying lip service to the East India Company, the Tai Pan is actually his own master. Part explorer, part enterpreneur, part smuggler, with a dash of the pirate, the Tai Pan is always on the lookout for a profit and a new market, for a new berth for his airship and a new adventure.

For any roleplaying game, graphics are a paramount factor, and in Hope & Glory images are an essential element in defining many of the different cultures in our gaming world. In this sense, were have on our side the contribution of Angelo Montanini, that did not simply illustrate some basic concepts, but actively created and gave form to many visual aspects of our setting.
We start today a light chat with Angelo, to find out a little more about fashion, fantasy, steampunk and inspiration, and how this led to the striking visuals he created for Hope & Glory.
