Cubicle 7 – Cakebread & Walton Announce Clockwork & Chivalry

By on 23 February 2010

Cubicle 7 Entertainment and Cakebread & Walton are pleased to announce they have formed a publishing partnership to bring out “Clockwork & Chivalry” – a brand new roleplaying game set during the English Civil War, although not the one you’ll have read about in your history books…

“I’m a big fan of alternate history and also of twisted histories so when I was first sent Clockwork & Chivalry the premise immediately appealed to me. After reading through the draft, and the associated proposal, things moved very quickly from there.” Said Cubicle 7’s Angus Abranson.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an exciting publishing partner. It’s great to see our game alongside the other cool RPGs that Cubicle 7 produces…” said Peter Cakebread of Cakebread and Walton; ”…and being able to use Mongoose’s new RuneQuest II system is a privilege as it really fits the gritty and heroic atmosphere we wanted for the game,” said Ken Walton, finishing Peter’s sentence for him.

About Clockwork & Chivalry
Magick and Clockwork battle for supremacy in a world turned upside down!

The Seventeenth Century is a time of romantic Cavaliers and dour Puritans, religious strife and political upheaval. England, a land riddled with hunger, pestilence and superstition, is gripped by Civil War. A multitude of competing factions struggle to survive. The King has been executed and Cromwell has usurped power. But in this richly-imagined alternate history, the conflict continues. Two great armies lay waste to the country, the Royalists aided by fearsome Alchemical magicks, the Roundheads by mighty Clockwork death-machines.

Old beliefs are crumbling and the future is up for grabs. With a heart filled with Righteousness and a cause worth fighting for, you enter the maelstrom. Adventure in a detailed and vibrant setting, powered by Mongoose Publishing’s RuneQuest II system.

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.
