Jack the Ripper

The most famous Fiend in history murders his last known victim in 1888 London.  That's right, Jack the Ripper is a villain available for hire to evil factions in Empire of the Dead. He's also the villain in West Wind's downloadable quick start rules teaser. I say its a teaser because its really a special scenario complete with enough rules to play it. So if you ever wished to play Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on the trail of London's greatest murder then try out the quick start scenario. You can download it here.

Here's a map of the White Chapel murders. I got it from this wonderful historical site about Jack the Ripper; Casebook: Jack the Ripper. You'll find all the historical notes of this case Here.
