1890 Shadows of the Empire

By on 9 December 2013

The British Empire is at the height of its power, and no city on Earth is as rich and as decadent as London. In the corridors of power, civil servants enact the iron will of the aristocracy, and ladies and gentleman of breeding dance the night away at glorious balls. Mighty Zeppelins dot the London skyline and in foundries powered by the spoils of empire, the greatest engineers of the age create marvels of steam.

But amidst the glitz and finery, the seedier side of Empire lurks: a killer roams the slums of London, and the East End is “horrible black labyrinth, reeking from end to end and swarming with human vermin, whose trade is robbery and whose recreation is murder.”

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
