The soul of a nation¸ the heart of an Empire.
Welcome to the greatest city in the world. For nearly a thousand years it has stood against fire¸ plague and revolution¸ and still it endures.
Thousands flock to the city looking for a new life¸ only to become fuel for the fire of industry or be broken by vice and despair. But not everyone seeks the wealth of the capital¸ for amidst the rookeries and old places of the city there is old magic woven into the very stones.
London brings the world to your door; spices from the east¸ fine linen¸ fashions from Paris¸ mysterious artefacts from forgotten nations¸ opium¸ absinthe and many other dark delights. There are a thousand temptations and a million ways to enjoy them¸ and they all await you in the Smoke.
In this book you will find:
• An overview of the sights and sounds of the vast metropolis¸ detailing what it is like to live in London¸ whatever your station in life.
• Detail on how to get around the city¸ how to find a cab¸ a hospital¸ a messenger¸ the police or even more disreputable company.
• A breakdown of the city into its many districts¸ each with their own distinct flavour.
• A selection of NPCs and adventure hooks to draw you into London's fog-shrouded streets.
