January 1646, and the land is in the grip of an icy winter. From Prince Rupert’s capital of Oxford, the Adventurers set out on a quest for the missing wife of a high-ranking Alchemist. Ahead of them, a ruthless Parliamentarian agent leaves a trail of destruction; behind them, a mysterious figure dogs their footsteps. They are bound for the tainted lands around Naseby, where the magickal aftermath of alchemical warfare blights the countryside. Beyond lie the Clockwork weapon-shops of Cambridge and a deadly climax which could re-ignite the smouldering embers of Civil War.
The Alchemist’s Wife is an adventure campaign for Clockwork & Chivalry, which follows on directly from the adventure in the worldbook. It takes the Adventurers through a landscape of divided Factions, of powerful magick and clockwork machinery, of ghostly hauntings and twisted nature, as they struggle to survive and learn the truth about the Alchemist’s Wife.
The Alchemist’s Wife requires the Clockwork & Chivalry worldbook available from Cubicle 7 and the RuneQuest II Core Rulebook available from Mongoose Publishing.
