COGS, CAKES & SWORDSTICKS (STEAMPUNK RPG)

 

A nice simple introductory guide to get you playing as quickly as possible

 

Cogs, Cakes and Swordsticks is a simple, narrative-style game of steampunk pulp adventure inspired by the scientific romances of the Victorian and Edwardian age, designed to be played in the comfort of your favourite tea shop with your friends, with nothing more than a pen, napkins and sugar cubes (should a six-sided die not be available).

 

In the world of Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks the age of clockwork and steam never made way for the age of electronics and microchips. Think of it as an alternative history, where Charles Babbage did manage to invent the very first computer - machines which now run Her Majesty Queen Victoria’s Empire with calculated efficiency.

 

Items we would recognise as modern technology do exist, thanks to Babbage’s engines speeding up the pace of scientific discovery, but they are beautifully created from brass and mahogany, and powered by steam (although that American chap Edison is apparently looking into this new-fangled electricity malarkey).
