    A Couple quick questions about Pirates & DRagons

    Hi Andre, The website is down - and will remain down. It seemed a bit anachronistic in its form (it was still at ClockworkandChivalry.co.uk) and we have been slack updating it. We can still be found here, on social media (there is a Google+ OneDice group and C&W and Renaissance & OneDice Facebook pages). We are continuing to trade on Drivethru and in stores via our publishers (Studio 2). We might put up a simpler to run website with a more general C&W domain name, when we can get to it. We have, as I've recently posted on the Kickstarter site, had a tough few years. Long story short, Ken has been increasingly unwell over that time. He has since been found to have had colon cancer, which has been successfully removed, but he'll still be out of action as he has to receive chemotherapy for the next nine months. So all the best for his recovery! In the meantime, I couldn't do the technical side of things and Gary, who can, has been very busy. I had been doing some f/t maternity cover, but now Ken has had his op, I have gone back to working almost f/t for Cakebread & Walton. I have also just started to learn how to do layout myself too, so even if I can't do all of the processes, I can put most of the book interiors together to speed things up (I started filing in the first section of Hobbes:Leviathan yesterday and it certainly looks like a book in the making!). Hopefully we'll have more coming out soon. I have a few half-done projects (I mean really half or more done - 100,000's of words of stuff!), Tales of Tortuga included. I'm sorry it has been so delayed - but in the end I wrote all of Curious Creatures and much of The Winter of the World RPG, which Ken was originally going to lead on. I'll try to keep people posted and 2019 isn't beyond the pale of possibility for the book. So apologies for any confusion and uncertainty. My bad, but I have been juggling rather too many balls! We haven't got a French translation, anyone else? Btw, my regular gaming group is about to start a P&D campaign - and I'm down as a player rather than running it. Cheers, Peter
  2. Spoiler! In which the Adventurers find themselves in a land more peculiar and dangerous than the very Moon itself – France!
  3. I'm back on with Hobbes: Leviathan. The art is done, the writing has started in earnest.

    Clockwork & Cthulhu; a revised look.

    Ooh, I so nearly got there this week, then one of my daughters was asked to lay the wreath at the city remembrance memorial at the last minute! I will keep an eye out - I know I'm working next weekend, but I have a couple of weekends off before Christmas.

    Clockwork & Cthulhu; a revised look.

    Lol, I often work at the local museum on a Sunday. When I'm not, it's usually because I am on holiday. But I will try to pop back into a game at some point. Is there a game due this Sunday coming?

    Clockwork & Cthulhu; a revised look.

    I try to keep up with G+, but I only see the notifications for there on my phone - and then only when it decides to let me know there are any! I'll try to remember to look more often/closely.

    Clockwork & Cthulhu; a revised look.

    Thanks, Jagerfury That warms the cockles of my hearts! I'll have to find a bigger box to keep them in, if they're all going to keep merrily bouncing around like they are now.
  9. Also available in print (just in time for next Christmas!!!). http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/200721/Rolling-Thunder-fanzine-3?src=newest

    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.

    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
  12. 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

    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.
