1905 is a time of upheaval in Europe. There are revolutions and rumours of revolution; fears that conflict between the Great Powers will plunge the world into global war. There are also whisperings of plots and counter-plots and of strange events from all across the continent.
The world is slightly different from our own, one where fantastic events can happen and where world-changing events are taking place. The clockwork engine is a reality and is rapidly supplanting steam-power as a main energy source in the way that the internal combustion engine did in our own history. Prototypes of clockwork-powered airships and clockwork automatons have already been seen. Across the ocean in America there are reports of vast factories ready to produce a new generation of clockwork machines.
In the early days of the 20th Century, the world is set to change forever.
The Clockwork Café is a 30-player game set in a pseudo-historical Europe at the start of the 20th Century. The game is pre-cast and all material, including detailed character sheets and a full background/rules booklet will be made available to the players well before the game. Players will be expected to fill out a casting form well in advance of the game and to read the character sheet and booklet before play. Players are free to costume, but simple costuming is required (ie no t-shirt and jeans).

AJ has been told, most firmly, that D is for Dramatic (rather than anything rhyming with Fire). He has agreed that it's in his best interests to comply.
Well, I know I didn't write anything last year, so I can't copy that...
