Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks – In The Bleak Midsummer - PDF
Just when you thought that the British weather couldn’t possibly get any worse...
London is suffering from the worst weather in recorded history – and for the capital of her Majesty’s Empire of Steam, that’s really quite an impressive feat. Not only is the centre of the city gripped by unseasonably cold snap, but a strange new species of robin (or something that looks very much like one) appears to have taken up residence. Yet what does any of this have to do with a commission from the Royal Zoological Society, a disappearing toymaker and a positive surfeit of mince pies?
In the Bleak Midsummer is a short, seasonally-themed (well, mostly) adventure for the Cogs, Cakes and Swordsticks roleplaying game of steampunk pulp adventure. As well as the scenario, the book also contains four pre-generated characters, a rival for the Ministry of Computational Sciences and hooks for further “chilling” adventuring!
