Welcome to the bizarre and dangerous world of Victorian London, a
city teetering on the edge of revolution. Its people are ushering
in a new era of technology, dazzled each day by new inventions.
Airships soar in the skies over the city, whilst ground trains
rumble through the streets and clockwork automatons are programmed
to carry out menial tasks in the offices of lawyers, policemen and
journalists. But beneath this shiny veneer of progress lurks a
sinister side. For this is also a world where lycanthropy is a
rampant disease that plagues the dirty whorehouses of Whitechapel,
where poltergeist infestations create havoc in old country seats,
where cadavers can rise from the dead and where nobody ever goes
near the Natural History Museum.
