Description Edit | History

From the introduction:
This book provides everything you need to introduce players and Narrators to the setting and basic rules of Clockwork: Empire, a steampunk role playing game set in a Victorian world of gothic horror. Players take the role of exceptional individuals within the British Empire of 1896 as it strives to maintain tradition in the face of scientific advancement, powerful mystical practices, and the Pontus - the primordial chaos which is slowly reclaiming creation. Characters fight against the supernatural horrors of a decaying world, and fight to build or destroy reputations so that they may ascend the social hierarchy. Reality itself is crumbling while debutantes vie for social currency, bureaucrats backstab one another, pirates plunder the seas and skies, and a few honorable men and women fight back against the chaos that is consuming the world. Intuitive card-based mechanics keep the action fast and fluid, and a robust social conflict system enables high-stakes intrigues to be the centerpiece of your story.

More Information Edit | History

The Quick-Start Rules and introductory adventure, Idle Hands provide everything needed to learn the game and play a session. The QSR covers the basics needed to play: character and antagonist statistics, the card mechanics used to perform tests and carry out conflict, rules for social and physical conflict, injury and recovery, basic equipment, and includes an artless version of the card deck needed to play.

Idle Hands, the included adventure, comes with six (6) complete, ready-to-run characters built according to the full character-generation rules that will be included in the Clockwork: Empire core book, and an adventure that sees a group of Edinburgh constables and their associates embroiled in the pursuit of a gang of bodysnatchers and the increasingly dangerous events they've touched off in the Vaults beneath the city. The adventure covers all rules basics and introduces players and narrators alike to the mechanics and some of the central setting elements of the world. The session concludes with suggestions on how to spin the events of the game out into a broader campaign.

The Quick-Start Rules and Idle Hands are available for free download from DriveThruRPG.
