    I'm a full-time games designer and partner in Cakebread & Walton. I've co-written and designed Renaissance Deluxe, Clockwork & Chivalry, Clockwork & Cthulhu, Dark Streets, Airship Pirates, and a host of other supplements and adventures. My first novel, The Alchemist's Revenge, is out now - published by Delta14. I'm a punk geek.
  1. Also available in print (just in time for next Christmas!!!). http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/200721/Rolling-Thunder-fanzine-3?src=newest
  2. SPIEL 2017 in Essen?

    I think it will be too late for us to get there this October, but it is something I'll look into for next year. Having said that, I'm going to have a quick look at travel and accommodation options, just in case there is a way to do it. I think the idea of teaming up is a good one - maybe I'll explore that... We are a bit slack when it comes to conventions, I usually only go to the ones I'm invited to guest at or that coincide with other holidays - but SPIEL, like GenCon, is on my list of "have to do it one day" cons. Studio 2 will have distributed our stuff so some should be there, but I realise that's not the same.
  3. A Clockwork of Orange bibliography and tropes?

    There is a short piece in the prologue of The Alchemist's Revenge set in the conflict, but I'd be wary of encouraging the author too much by buying the book
  4. A Clockwork of Orange: The Heydelberg Horror from Cakebread & Walton is now available as a hardback! 1610. All of Europe teeters on the brink of war. Religious and political factions manoeuvre for advantage. In the scramble for power, lost knowledge is brought to light, and discoveries from the New World change our conceptions of reality. But there are some things man was not meant to know… The Heydelberg Horror is the first part of a new campaign for Clockwork & Cthulhu. A Clockwork of Orange will take the agents of the Karolinium in Prague across Europe to the dark secret at the heart of the Holy Roman Empire. Requires the Clockwork & Chivalry Core Rulebook, 2nd Edition. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/208684/The-Heydelberg-Horror?src=newest

  7. Rules Questions

    I always think of an all out attack as against one target - it isn't subtle and thought through, it is a desperate discharging of pistols or reckless hacking where the attacker hopes to win through sheer brute force and frenzied violence.

  10. Mysterious weapon

    Thank you for pointing my way to an interesting arena - 17th century fireworks as weapons!!! I'm sure there must be a mini-article in this for Rolling Thunder!
  11. Mysterious weapon

    Good question! I found the following: "The fire-pike (trompa de feugo) was a pike fitted with a bottle of burning combustibles, used both ashore and aboard ship." B.Little, Pirate Hunting, 2010 Plenty of other great stuff in the chapter too! https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=MW8wMof8MGgC&pg=PT122&lpg=PT122&dq=what+were+seventeenth+century+fire+pikes&source=bl&ots=fGBMv7Upb3&sig=GkvqTv4G8OQ0xys-CHTk-Cd1M2s&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiev5vMssfSAhVoJsAKHapyCl0Q6AEIOzAF#v=onepage&q=what were seventeenth century fire pikes&f=false

    Thanks, Harshax. Yes, what Jakob said
  13. Cakebread & Walton are proud to announce that from March 1st 2017 they will have a new member of the permanent team. Gary Buckland will be joining full-time as an Associate Partner. Since the start of Cakebread & Walton in 2009, Gary has worked with us on many individual projects and is responsible for some fantastic cover art and designs, as well as some outstanding interior artwork. Gary has been working in the art, design, production and publication business for much of his life and with him on board on a more permanent basis, we'll be able to announce an even more robust and prolific schedule moving forward and further improve on our production standards. We're really looking forward to working with him and welcome him to our little company. Speaking to us from his home in Innsmouth, Gary said, “In an industry filled with the most creative and wonderful people, Messrs. Cakebread and Walton stand tall with their work within and love for the RPG industry. I very much look forward to working more closely with them on lots of exciting projects and extend a warm welcome to them to join me at the local Esoteric Order of Dagon church very soon.” Gary is joining Cakebread & Walton just as we are on the brink of bringing out Michael Scott Rohan's The Winter of the World RPG for OneDice (and which will also be 5E compatible) and A Clockwork of Orange for our Renaissance D100 ruleset - and watch out for a host of other releases over the next few months!
  14. Of Possible Interest to Dark Streets

    An excellent reference! Of course, at the time of Dark Streets, it was even grislier - sure, there were still body snatchers, but they weren't above having a good three way scrap at the gallows for the bodies - students vs surgeons vs families...
  15. Issue #2 of the Cakebread & Walton fanzine "Rolling Thunder" is now available in print for the princely sum of $5. It includes new backgrounds and adventures for OneDice Pulp and OneDice Urban Fantasy, Roman character creation and adventure for Renaissance, and a new protagonist for Dark Streets 2nd ed. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/198181/Rolling-Thunder-Fanzine-Issue-2?src=newest
