In this Penny Dreadful, the adventurers are hired by Sir Travis Duquesne, a financier who has been referred to them by fellow Oriental club member Henry Doyle. Through his accountant, Sir Travis asks the adventurers to investigate the strange happenings at a Midlands coal mine. Travelling to Bremerstoke village, they discover that someone has let a demon loose in the mine that has not only sparked a strike but threatens to ravage the countryside.
Originally published as a first edition penny dreadful, The Devil in the Dark has been expanded and revised for the third edition of Victoriana. It was originally intended to be incorporated into Streets of Shadow, but we couldn’t fit it in due to space limitations. The Devil in the Dark stands on its own as a complete penny dreadful.
