Sven Tore Berglund - private detective
Harry 'The Pen' Standish - reporter
Stuart Dunbar - a Bobby
Stuart is walking his beat in the East End when he hears the sound of a Bobby's whistle and runs towards it. He finds his colleague Hugh kneeling next to a body of a well-groomed gentleman. The man is very much out of place here and has paid for it with his life. Someone stabbed him, but not without working him over before that. While Hugh goes to get Inspector Avery Shaw, Stuart gathers up the dead man's belongings and aims a kick at a street urching trying to steal something.
This was planned as an adventure for one evening, but of course it didn't work out that way. The characters were pre-made for us and we had our pick. I chose the bobby and I like him a lot. He's not the gentlest of men, but not as rough as many of his colleagues.
I think the Dravot's Head is becoming a fixture in our Gaslight adventures. I came up with it for the Cat and Dai adventures as a place for them to start their ventures in the East End and somehow it keeps turning up. I named it after Danny Dravot from Kipling's brilliant short story The Man Who Would Be King
