Available for preorder now: Dark Streets from Cakebread and Walton.
Join the Adventures of the Bow Street Runners in their Struggle Against the Minions of the Cthulhu Mythos London, 1749: A city of vice, crime and misery. Gangs of ruffians rule the streets, unopposed. Brothels proliferate. Child-beggars starve in filthy gutters. Corrupt night-watchmen and thief-takers turn a blind eye to wrong-doing. And dark creatures lurk in back alleys, called from beyond by the desperate with nothing left to lose. But there is a new force on the streets of London; for the author and magistrate Henry Fielding has teamed up with his brother John to form the city’s first police force – the Bow Street Runners. The Fieldings have persuaded parliament to fund their crime-fighting endeavour, but they know that there is something behind the vice – for John Fielding’s blind eyes can see things that others cannot – things that man was not meant to know.
Dark Streets is a worldbook for the Renaissance Deluxe RPG, in which players take on the roles of officers in London’s first, desperately small, police force, investigating the dark secrets behind the sordid crimes of eighteenth century London.
This mixture of authentic history and the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft, Dark Steets comes to you from the designers of Clockwork & Cthulhu, Clockwork & Chivalry and the Origins Award Nominated Abney Park’s Airship Pirates RPG
Dark Streets is a 156 page softcover with black and white interior. Requires the Renaissance Deluxe RPG core rulebook.
Available for preorder now at the C7 store. PDF available now, hardcopy due March 2013

With a crew of drunken pilots
We're the only airship pirates
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies but a danger to ourselves
From the music of renowned steampunk band Abney Park
From the true (honest!) tales of Captain Robert of the airship Ophelia
Cakebread & Walton have just released a super sneak preview of the upcoming 'Airship Pirates' RPG based upon the worlds and music of legendary steampunk band Abney Park. Abney Park's very own Captain Robert has been looking after the graphic design and layout himself and has done a stunning job, as we hope you'll agree when you see the preview and the finished book this August.
The preview is a sample 6 pages and still a work in progress, so please ignore any 'page xx's' as they'll be removed in the final version.
So without further ado please click on the cover to take you to the preview site!
