Overview

In a Victorian steampunk world, monsters and creatures of the night are not going to fit in. Someone has to round them up and put them away. That's the job of the Big Game Hunters, a rag-tag band of Steampunk Victorian monster hunters with mad skills, blunderbusses and a nose for trouble. In their first adventure, they exterminate a creature in the Scottish Highlands only to discover their reward is a trip to a seemingly deserted Prussian village courtesy of their mysterious benefactor in the Queen's Directorate. All is not as it seems and the Lizard Baron threatens to stop the Big Game Hunters almost as soon as they've started.
