England has descended into civil war. War, plague, and religious division make people's lives a constant misery. But even greater threats exist. Witches whisper of the old gods, Royalist alchemists pore over John Dee's forbidden translation of the Necronomicon, and Parliamentarian engineers consult with creatures from beyond the crystal spheres and build blasphemous mechanisms. Vast inter-dimensional beings seek entry into the world, while their human servants, corrupted, crazed, and enslaved, follow the eldritch agendas of their hidden masters. Clockwork & Cthulhu brings the horror of H.P. LovecraftÕs Cthulhu Mythos to the 17th century alternate historical fantasy world of Clockwork & Chivalry.
