The Library

A semi-historical Mutants and Masterminds (1st edition) game set in and around the British Empire in the high Victorian era.


This wiki supports The Library, set in 1875 and featuring the exploits of a new cabal of Collection Assets. It is inspired in equal parts by both The League of Extraordinary Gentleman and Charles Stross' The Laundry. The Player Characters work for a secret government ministry charged with defending the Crown and the Realm against the occult and other weirdness.
