Tough Justice is a historical game set in England in the years of ‘The Bloody Code’ roughly from the end of the 17th to the beginning of the 19th Centuries. It casts its players as both Defence and Prosecution in a capital case. Both teams of players must pull out all the stops to defeat their opponents. For the Defence their client’s life is at stake. For the Prosecution there are political and social pressures to see “justice” done in all its harsh brutality. It is not a game for the faint hearted even though, unlike most roleplaying games; Player Characters are VERY unlikely to die.
