Servants of Her Imperial Majestys Empire

Journey with us to an alternative 1898, where history rubs shoulders with imagination. Where ‘what was’ is replaced by ‘what might have been’. Leagues of Adventures presents, for your edification – ‘The Dreaming Spires, episode one of the Great Game Campaign’.

“... A time when science itself stands poised to usher in a new golden age, or doom the world to terrible war.
In the ancient university of Cambridge, the scion of an aristocratic family has gone missing, unearthing a plot which threatens to plunge the British Empire into chaos.
Can the intrepid globetrotters solve the Cambridge conspiracy before it’s too late? What secrets lie hidden beneath its dreaming spires?”

BACKGROUND:
Mrs. Rachel Steele is a tall, lithe woman with dark hair who carries herself with grace and wit. While she takes her work seriously, she also displays a sense of humor. Since childhood, she has always chafed at prevailing attitudes that girls were inferior to boys, and she set out to prove that she could do anything they could do - and do it better. She joined the Women's Suffrage Society, aggrieved by the unfairness of being denied the right to vote. From the Society she learned jiu-jutsu for self-defense as well as how to best use her feminine wiles to achieve her goals.

Rachel Steele is married to the famed explorer Edgar Steele, who vanished while on an expedition to the Amazon some years ago. Rachel led a search for him that was unsuccessful in the end, but she still holds out hope that he lives. Determined to do something productive with her life, she joined Her Majesty's Secret Service, where she found that she has a natural talent for espionage. She puts it to good use in service to the British Empire, though she does feel guilty about the deception necessary to do her duty. She reports to Mycroft Holmes, the brother of the legendary consulting detective Sherlock Holmes.

Jonathan Hornsbee - An explorer escaping from the life he had and never truly wanted. What was the life? Well, he's not talking. Jonathan is a man who prefers not to be chained down, but rather craves the thrill of adventure. The idea of getting lost in the unknown has appealed to him since before he can remember. To him the mundane life that many live isn't really living... which is a shame. After all, the world is a big place, with so much to see.

Jonathan is a friend to the Steele family. At the time of Edward Steele's disappearance he made himself available to Rachel for the search and rescue operation. Due to his involvement in the search he has previously bumped shoulders with the reporter Nellie Bly. As an explorer Jonathan has also had the pleasure of running into the Honourable, Lord Peter Roxborough a time or two.
