    Cheat the Guillotine

    "We seek him here, we seek him there
    Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
    Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?
    That demmed elusive Pimpernel!"

    So runs the verse about the darling of Regency London . . . the Scarlet Pimpernel, elusive rescuer of the victims of the French Revolution. The streets in Paris are awash in blood as Robespierre orders hundred to the guillotine, yet this unknown Englishman and his brave band continue to spirit the innocent to safety in England.

    Who is this Scarlet Pimpernel? Why does he risk life and honor in a land not his own? And who is brave enough to forsake the Prince Regent"s glittering court to join the Pimpernel under the very shadow of Madame la Guillotine?

    Scarlet Pimpernel is set in France during the darkest days of the Reign of Terror. Join the Pimpernel and his gallant crew as they outwit the Committee of Public Safety and its agent Chauvelin again and again. Aristocrats, clergy, shopgirls, even the Dauphin himself - no one is beyond the Pimpernel"s aid.

    This book contains a complete chronology of the French Revolution, game statistics for the Pimpernel and his major lieutenants, maps of Paris and France in the 1790s, and four complete adventures, plus sidebars on everything from fashion to politics . . . everything you need for a swashbuckling campaign in the days when France turned upside-down.

Some elements that were standard at the time, notably much hand-wringing about being a poor weak woman, and a Jewish character who's equal parts Fagin and Stepin Fetchit, are jarring today -- but also a bit nuanced, as Marguerite proves anything but weak and

Book Description HTML. A handsome and fashionable man of the English court attempts to defend innocent people from the violence of the French revolution. Sir Percy, the Scarlet Pimpernel, plans to rescue the young Dauphin, but his travelmate, Armand St.

Just, betrays him, and he is imprisoned. Formats: PDF, Epub, Kindle, TXT. The Old Man in The Pimpernel's true identity is unknown except to a small group of co-conspirators who work with him and together comprise the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel.

Not even his wife, the beautiful Lady Marguerite Blakeney, knows that the man she is married to, an effete fop and dull-witted British dandy Sir Percy Blakeney, is a secret hero who risks his life on a daily basis in order to save. The Scarlet Pimpernel is generally considered to be the first novel ever written that focuses on a masked hero with a dual identity.
