TREACHERY and despair stalk London streets. Queen Victoria Gloriana of New Albion, long may her many arms hold the Crown, has been shocked by the murder of Prince Franz Drago of Bohemia. A t her Prince Consort’s suggestion, the Crown will shortly employ a certain consulting detective and his companion to hunt down the murderer, beginning the hunt for a pair of Restorationists in the bloody wake of the Prince’s death : two dangerously cunning provocateurs who seek nothing but to overthrow the rule of the Old Ones and return mankind to darkness. Thus, the fates of each pair seem bound to become insinuated with the other s a conflict which will surely result in the death of one set, the other, or both. Your decade begins in London, capital of Albion, though from there it is quite easy to secure passage to such distant shores as Manhattan in the New World, Egypt, China and even further. Horse-drawn carriage brushes shoulders with the earliest incarnations of the Underground in this sooty city, while high above a blood-red moon lights the sky. One Thousand Choice Points ought to be enough to get you on your way, so take them and spend them before somebody else empties your pockets.

SELECT one. Your age is 20+2d8. You may either keep the same gender as last jump, or freely change it now. ROOK (Drop In) While the Crown has never sat further from the ground, humanity keeps calm and carries on. Yours is a common sort of person, the average man or woman on the street, but such a thing has rarely stopped one from greatness. ASSOCIATE While the academics and consulting detectives of the world tend towards more cerebral pursuits, it is men and women such as yourself who can be relied upon to act, both for themselves and on behalf of others. BRIGHT MIND Your intellect marks you apart from most others, ruminating on the mysteries of the worl d, like the workings of killers’ minds or the motions of asteroids. Study the world, and you shall know all its secrets. CONSORT Not all the royalty is Royalty. Some are entirely normal humans …a t least in body, anyway. You have your uses to those who wear the crowns, and your position is not without its perks. ROYALTY 100cp As descendant of the Queen herself, your blood is not ‘blue’ – it is, in fact, quite green. Without certain purchases you may be very distantly in line for one of Europe’s crowns, or perhaps not so distantly at all.

PERKS are 50% off to the matching background; 100cp perks become free. Pickpocket 100cp, Rook It’s not really stealing if their coins are so carelessly guarded, now is it? With a talent for removing things from others’ possession, they often have no idea something has been stolen until they have need for that very item. Gone To Ground 200cp, Rook You’re quite the hard chap to find, should you wish to be, even though every citizen has a pair of eyes with which to see. Submerging yourself into a city’s hustle and bustle allows your presence to go

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
