Geoff Gillan's The Machine King
A Mechanical Nightmare Awakens!
Victorian London: Heart of the most industrialised empire the world has ever seen. A heart that pounds to the rhythms of steam hammers¸ pistons¸ and whirring cogs.◊
Curious reports have begun to circulate London claiming the impossible: industrial and domestic machines have been witnessed acting on their own volition¸ attacking innocent men and women.◊
What strange power drives otherwise unremarkable lumps of cold metal to murder? What fuels the odd machine-haunted dreams that nightly plague hundreds of Londoners?◊
In a world ruled by machines . . . who rules the machines?◊
This detailed and lavishly illustrated scenario takes Investigators from Gaslit London through to nightmarish realms somewhere beyond sleep¸ all in search of answers to a bizarre mystery with roots in the distant past. Combining the trademark wit and intelligence of Geoff Gillan (Horror on the Orient Express¸ Regiment of Dread) with sweeping and imaginative visions of a world where Industrial Era technology has gone mad¸ this is a scenario like no other.
Originally written in 1995 and believed lost forever¸ this glorious scenario from the pen of one Call of Cthulhu's most loved writers is at last made available to everyone in a deluxe layout... for free!
Files provided in both a screen-friendly (texture rich) version and a high-contrast printer-friendly version.
