I am very pleased to announce that we’ve finally released a scenario I’ve been working on for ages, called A Lark in a Cage, over on DriveThruRPG. I’ve been working on this scenario, in one form or another (pitch for a scenario competition, Microsoft Word drafts, playtest feedback, layout, etc.) for just over two years, and I’m so glad to finally have it publicly available.
Here’s the description from DriveThru:
The year is 1895. Oscar Wilde’s trial has just concluded, making the news across London. In Deptford, a family discovers that their child has been replaced by . . . something else. When the investigators take the case, they find themselves on a tour across the soot-choked streets of East London, revealing new threats to the city, wicked enemies, and even wickeder allies as they race against the clock to save the child.
Includes six pre-generated investigators, as well as support for including the scenario into your own ongoing gaslight campaign, and period-specific setting information covering the East End of London, a city that is remarkably unclean, with squalor and wealth coexisting side-by-side. These are the days of child sweatshops and clouds of smoke that form an infamous, unhealthy smog. The investigators will have to navigate this world, of both natural and unnatural dangers, if they want to survive.
If the scenario sounds exciting and you happen to pick it up, please consider leaving it a 5-star review, they really do help products have a long, fulfilling life.
