When a mysterious antiques collector contacts aging professor of world studies, Dr. Arthur Monocle, his boring life of lecturing and retirement is turned upside down.
Join Dr. Monocle and The Strongman as they journey deep into the treacherous, war-torn Chasm region in search of an ancient relic before it’s lost to time. Pursued by a shadowy group of masked agents called GhostWurks and a gang of incompetent assassins dubbed The League of Ornery Bedfellows, Dr. Monocle and The Strongman put their lives on the line for That Certain Gentleman.
It’s a steampunk world, an alternate earth full of automatons/robots, maldeviants/mutants, clockwork devices, wondrous contraptions, airships, steamdrivers, paraphenomenal strangeness, top hats, randomosity, and a monkey wearing a fez.
