Cheat the Guillotine

"We seek him here, we seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?
That demmed elusive Pimpernel!"

So runs the verse about the darling of Regency London . . . the Scarlet Pimpernel, elusive rescuer of the victims of the French Revolution. The streets in Paris are awash in blood as Robespierre orders hundred to the guillotine, yet this unknown Englishman and his brave band continue to spirit the innocent to safety in England.

Who is this Scarlet Pimpernel? Why does he risk life and honor in a land not his own? And who is brave enough to forsake the Prince Regent's glittering court to join the Pimpernel under the very shadow of Madame la Guillotine?

Scarlet Pimpernel is set in France during the darkest days of the Reign of Terror. Join the Pimpernel and his gallant crew as they outwit the Committee of Public Safety and its agent Chauvelin again and again. Aristocrats, clergy, shopgirls, even the Dauphin himself – no one is beyond the Pimpernel's aid.

This book contains a complete chronology of the French Revolution, game statistics for the Pimpernel and his major lieutenants, maps of Paris and France in the 1790s, and four complete adventures, plus sidebars on everything from fashion to politics . . . everything you need for a swashbuckling campaign in the days when France turned upside-down.

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, but can be used as a sourcebook for any roleplaying game. GURPS Swashbucklers is highly recommended, but not required.
