Messrs Cakebread and Walton will be visiting Continuum 2012 this year (20-23 July), where we’ll be involved in a couple of panels (one with a certain Mr Angus Abranson on the subject of steampunk, and the other about our Renaissance games) and running a couple of RPG sessions. See you there!
(If you haven’t already booked, get a move on – registration closes 2nd July!)
Cakebread & Walton are pleased to announce the launch of two new PDFs – Clockwork & Cthulhu and Kingdom & Commonwealth Omnibus II. To celebrate, we’re having a one-week sale on all our Renaissance system products – everything is currently 25% off the normal PDF price! That includes Clockwork & Chivalry Core Rulebook and Kingdom & Commonwealth Omnibus I as well as the Renaissance D100 SRD - which is, as always, free.
Our company now has its own store front on www.DriveThruRPG.com, selling our Renaissance system products. Our Airship Pirates line is still available as PDFs from the Cubicle 7 Entertainment store front, and all our print products are available from Cubicle 7 Entertainment.
Clockwork & Cthulhu brings Lovecraft’s mythos to the fantasy 17th century England of Clockwork & Chivalry and contains background information, new rules, and three horror adventures – and its playable with only the free Renaissance D100 SRD – though why not take the opportunity to get more familiar with the C&C world by downloading the Core Rulebook while the sale’s on?
Kingdom & Commonwealth Omnibus II continues the epic campaign, taking the players into a world of magickal trench warfare in the Debatable Lands in No Man’s Land and then on a voyage to the moon in a clockwork sailing ship in Quintessence.
Both books will soon be available in print from Cubicle 7, and in all good games stores, but this offer ends on 4th July, so make the most of it!
Coming this autumn from Abney Park, Cakebread & Walton and Cubicle 7 Entertainment…
Underneath the Lamplight – The Neovictorian Sourcebook
written by Andrew Peregrine
Under the dull lamplight, in eternal stasis, lies the Neovictorian world.
Trapped in great cities, crafted more like prisons than homes, live the survivors of the Great Rectification. They toil under the shadow of the Change Cage, forever told they are the lucky ones. They alone have been saved from an outside world now ruled by terrifying beasts. There is only death beyond the walls of the seventeen great Change Cage cities.
Inside the cities, the byzantine Administration rules the population with absolute authority. It roots out dissidence with an iron hand, turning neighbour against neighbour in its search for nonconformists and rebels.
But within these cities there is a faint strand of hope. Some understand the truth and fight the authority of the Administration. Some fight against the stratified society and seek an end to the eternal stasis. Some even dare to attempt escape…
Within this book you will find:
An in depth look at life in the Neovictorian world, including the attitudes, traditions, fashions, religion and lifestyles of each of the classes.
- A gazetteer of the seventeen Change Cage cities across the world, each with their own secrets and lies to protect, including a detailed guide to the city of Desolation.
- Detail on the Administration and its ministries of Truth, Legacy, Hope, Diligence and Defence, as well as the Emperor and the Governors
- Expanded options for Neovictorian characters, including additional traits for Automata and Misbegotten player characters.
- The truth about the Change Cage and the mysterious Chuno Ggun, as well as notes for the Gamemaster on running Neovictorian adventures.
- An adventure, “Sand in the Hourglass”, set within the great city of Desolation, which may end in terrible bloodshed that will rock the Neovictorian world.
