The Bookhounds of London

A Gumshoe System game In the world of Occult London
January 2019 | Full
C.W. Bailey and Son, Booksellers, is an unassuming shop in the Covent Garden neighborhood, on the edge of the West End of London. The selection is alright, the tea is excellent, and the staff is...well, a bit dodgy.

These "bookhounds" are, through the pages they pore over, about to find themselves up to their necks in worlds they never thought possible, and dangers they had never even conceived.

Our campaign is live-streamed every other Sunday at 3:30 on the Tesserarian Tales YouTube Channel!
