Doctor Clockworks. Avalon Min-Game #135


It is the year 1875 and the world's great powers are playing “the game of nations”: expanding their colonial empires by means both fair and foul. Weblike networks of spies, soldiers, and operatives span the world, doing the bidding of their respective crowns.

A few clandestine groups, however, serve no crown nor any authority higher than themselves. Such an organization is the Clockwork Legion, a shadowy viper's nest of anarchists and evildoers dedicated to toppling governments and sowing discord across the globe.

But there can be no shadow without light; while some secret cabals are dedicated to spreading terror, others work to uphold the common good. The Explorer Society is one of the latter, a confederation of scientists and adventurers pledged to stamp out evil and preserve the rule of law.

On the Continent, the Clockwork Legion, led by the sinister Baron von Sturm, has enlisted the aid of the brilliant, half-mad British scientist Dr. Phineas Cloughton (a.k.a. “Dr. Clockwork”) to create not only an army of clockwork automatons, but also a doomsday weapon of terrifying power: the Kinetic Nullifier, capable of stopping all physical motion down to the atomic level. If mounted on a seagoing vessel, the cannon-like Nullifier would be able to neutralize an entire opposing navy by turning their ship's metal hulls to ice, which would then shatter as a result of their own weight. Von Sturm and the beautiful Eva Richter plan to turn the weapon against the most powerful navy on earth - that of Her Royal Highness, Queen Victoria of England.

In London, Sir James Wyngate, head of the Explorer Society, learns of the Clockwork Legion's insidious plan. Wyngate enlists the aid of Britain's Captain Etheridge, American operative Zebulon Manning, and others in a mission to thwart von Sturm's plans and preserve the British Empire.

This is the story of their struggle, with the ultimate fates of Great Britain and the United States of America hanging in the balance...

Product Information
File Size:
11.31 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
