THE CODE OF STEAM AND STEEL
The characters are retained by an honest business-man to undertake an archeological expedition to recover the fabled "Great Green Martian Sphere". Legendary, valuable and rumoured to have numerous secret abilities, humankind has been seeking this ancient artefact for decades - the Martians for centuries.
But why are there no official licenses, and why are the Viceroy's forces so keen to question everyone associated with the venture? And how will your small party survive in the Martian badlands, outside the "pacified zone", beyond the range and support of the British Commonwealth's artillery?
A game of Scientific Romance and Steampunk adventure, set on the Victorian colony of Mars. Pregenerated characters are available but – ideally – you’ll make you own on the day - or reprise the character you made on Saturday. It’s quick and easy and massive fun!

System: The Code of Steam and Steel. My own lightweight steampunk rules. Just 2d6, easy to play. But when you roll doubles, truly magical things start to happen.
Notes: This is a fun and exciting game and suitable for all ages and types of players. People with an affinity for Steampunk and/or British History or classic Sci-Fi will find it particularly enjoyable.
Though it's a stand alone adventure, players are welcome to reprise their characters if they played in "The Great Martian Tripod Race" on Saturday morning.
