From the publisher:
They Watch...from the salons of the rich to the darkest corners of the tenements, they are out there in the city. The city plays host to countless organisations, each with their own agenda, battling in a shadow war for supremacy under the cover of the smog that fills the streets.
These groups range from the ancient to the new, from political activists to cultists worshipping dark gods. Their members range across society, inviting both gentleman and scoundrel to their secret meetings. So you need to watch your step as you cross the smoke shadowed streets. The next person you meet could be one of them. But will they become an ally, or an enemy?
Volume 1 - The Secret Masters details the shadowy figures that lurk behind the mask of society, the secret orders than reach out to control mankind for their own mysterious ends.
Each volume of Faces in the Smoke contains:
- An array of urban based organisations to face your players with in your Victoriana campaign.
- Full detail and statistics for the puppet masters behinds the shadows
- Secrets and adventure hooks for each order for the Gamemaster to weave into her campaign
Each organisation has an agenda, none are simply good or evil, so they could be either allies or enemies of the player characters depending on how they are approached.
