All the President's Men
1866: The Federated States of America
President Lincoln has a problem, outside forces are trying to destabilize the newly formed FSA. Most leaders wouldn’t have been able to see it, but I guess having a babbage in your skull is good for something.
What’s that? Yeah, a babbage. What did you expect him to do? That Wilkes Booth guy blasted half of his skull clean off before Lincoln’s rumbler tore him in two. Anyway, there’s a lot of stuff going on, and you managed to survive some of it. And boy howdy, I bet it was weird. What was it? uplifted animal? A hybrid? A clockwork monstrosity, well, you’ll tell me. Anyway, that’s how you came to be known, and that’s what got you called to Washington D.C.
So whether you take a genetically engineered Swan, a ride on the atmospheric rail, or if you’re fancy enough to have your own rotorchair, it’s time to get to D.C. and see what the president has for you.
This campaign is set alongside the world highlighted in Mark Hodder’s Burton & Swinburne books.
- The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack
- The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man
I have set it in North America so that we don’t really treat those books canon.
