"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." (Douglas Adams)

The year is 1886. The world is not quite our own. Queen Victoria rules Britannia and all her colonial possessions. The Ripper haunts the streets of Whitechapel. Unknown forces are at work in the world. The Great Powers of Europe stand at the brink of war. Join the passengers and crew of the airship Royal Victoria as she crosses the Atlantic on a voyage to destiny. Cross wits with notorious diplomats, spies, scholars, heroes, rogues, killers and worse. The occult mixes with mystery, love and danger on a GothicPulp airship.

Dean Edgell, the author of games including Intrigue in the Clouds, and Intrigue Beneath the Waves died in December 2007 after a lengthy illness. He is and always will be sorely missed.

Dean's family have been kind enough to allow some of his friends access to his games, so that they might be run in in perpetuity. An entirely voluntary collection will be made at the game in support of the benefit fund for his autistic daughter Eileen.

AJ is a GM-for-Hire, a Bid Committee Muggins and an occasional Plot Doctor. (He is still referring to himself in the 3rd person. Who knows why?).

Williams, Brian

Brian has written and run (usually with the able help AJ Smith) many successful 4-hour freeforms both here and in the US at Intercon. This includes the The Man In Black, Council of Fennas Drunin and Cardolani Succession. Various misguided individuals (Mikey, Sue and Steve) have volunteered to help him and AJ run The House on the Hill and Intrigue in the Clouds this time around.
