"Swashbuckling Adventure in Revolutionary France"
From the back cover:
"Cheat the Guillotine!"
" "We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?
That damned elusive Pimpernel!"
"So runs the verse about the darling of Regency London ... the Scarlet Pimpernel, elusive rescuer of the victims of the French Revolution. The streets of Paris are awash in blood as Robespierre orders hundreds to the guillotine, yet this unknown Englishman and his brave band continue to spirit the innocent to safety in England."
Set in France during the Reign of Terror of the the early 1790s. Contains all the background necessary for a campaign and includes four complete adventures. Based on The Scarlet Pimpernel and its sequels by Baroness de Orczy.
