It's not often this kind of opportunity arises... the chance to play a game of Bookhounds of London in the world's oldest Antiquarian bookshop – Sotheran's (in of course, London). Expect plenty of atmosphere...
Tickets for the game can be booked through Eventbrite and will take place on the evening of Tuesday, 16th April. The game is organised by Sotheran's and Pelgrane Press.
In the area? Willing to travel (a bit)? Then this looks like an awful lot of fun. We don't know yet whether it will be recorded.
Perhaps one day more mysteries will be revealed.
Bookhounds of London - Tabletop Adventure
As I entered the bookstore of Haggart and Clydemore, the clerk at the desk acknowledged me with a sneer and a contemptuous glance. "Can I help?" he proffered, in a tone as if to suggest he would eagerly facilitate any eventuality but that one. Not wanting to waste time on pleasantries, I pulled out my hard won copy of the Codex Maleficarum, and the clerk hissed. "You will never find the other half of the manuscript" he screeched, teeth elongating into fangs, as he lunged for my throat.
Join others at the world's oldest antiquarian bookstore for a night of book-hunting, boggarts and bumps in the night. Sotheran's are hosting a one-night tabletop adventure using Pelgrane Press' Bookhounds of London setting, where bookish adventurers hunt down old texts and face off against horrors from beyond in 1930s London. The adventure will run from 18:00 at the bookstore in Piccadilly until 21:00. Before the night is done, you may turn a tidy profit and eke out another day as a bookseller, or meet a grisly fate at the hands of one of the many perils of Mythos London.
