"Cub Reporter Henrietta Tilney is sent on her first assignment, to interview accused mass murderer Lord Beowulf Harwood. But young Henrietta quickly finds out there is much more to this story and its subject Lord Harwood. Will this plucky young reporter get her story and survive with her life intact?"
A Penny Dreadful in three parts!
Lord Harwood was known as a libertine, a lothario, and had many adventures across the globe hunting game of the four (and two legged) variety. But even a wealthy man like Lord Harwood is bound to run out of money eventually, especially if is not working at more profitable ventures. The story goes that Lord Harwood starting gambling in order to fill his dwindling coffers. Apparently, the risk and excitement was enough to make it seem like a sport and worthy of the Lord's time and effort. Sadly for Lord Harwood, he met Anton Doub who was not about playing games and had set the outcome before hand. Thanks to Anton’s unethical skills and Lord Harwood’s stubbornness, Anton took Lord Harwood for all he possessed. But full of the world-renowned British pride, Lord Harwood made once last gambit by betting all the manuscripts of his live history. Lord Harwood was planning to sell it to a publishing firm to be a penny dreadful. These manuscripts were of a great interest for Anton Doub. With these stories, he would be able to pluck plenty of farthings from gullible young society women.
The wager was made and accepted and Lord Harwood lost. Supposedly after this incident Lord Harwood disappeared off into the Far East, following clues to hunt dragons. Lord Harwood had a theory that the Dragon’s of European myth came from Asia and that some still lived in the tallest mountains in the world, safely tucked away from mankind.
