Event Description

This adventure is set in an alternative version of the 19th century – sometime in the 1870’s. The widowed Queen Victoria reigns over the expanding British Empire – which is a powerhouse of civilization and technological innovation. On the streets of London steam-powered carriages – “trackless trains” – share the street with Hansom Cabs and horse-drawn omnibuses. The air is filled with airships plying to and from the dizzying towers to which they tether – rarely coming to Earth.

Anachronistic travel and other technologies has brought forward other social innovations. The British Empire is well on its way to becoming a true Commonwealth of nations. A citizen from its far flung corners is welcomed in an increasingly multi-racial England as a fellow Briton. Anyone not from the Commonwealth – French, Prussians, Yankees and their ilk – is considered a “Johnny Foreigner.”

Thanks to the social innovations of the now-deceased Prince Albert, the United Kingdom is enjoying the benefits of a vestigial Welfare State and National Health system.

Europe is rent by the Franco-Prussian War. It seems likely that Bismarck’s forces will succeed against the current “Napoleon’s” rather rag-tag forces. There is some concern in Parliament that the war should not spill over the channel and representations from both sides for assistance and support are currently falling on deaf ears. However, only a fool would think that more covert agents from both the French and Prussian “Empires” are not currently at work across Britain.

Oh, and Charles Darwin’s voyages have discovered an Australia where the Dinosaurs still rule. He brought back some eggs. There are now several dinosaurs on display at London Zoo.

Or there were. You have been contacted by a friend, one of the Keepers at the Zoo. One of their dinosaurs has vanished and they'd like you to try and recover it before they have to make an official report. Trouble is - there's no clue as to how it disappeared.

A locked room mystery - involving a Brontosaurus.

Ah! Steampunk!
