Fria Ligan should let a scenario be placed in each of the neighbour countries during the time; Denmark, Finland and Norway (in union). Also in the Baltics and Germany. Preferably with a visit to the capital first (maps!) and then maybe the countryside.

As long as everyone comes back to Gyllencreutz in the end, I fully agree with you. A “tour” of the area at the time would be really nice. 
People from said countries could also come to Uppsala and visit, since they can stay at Gillet Hotell.  ;)
I would love to see people belonging to the Society but living in other countries.

Big thanks for the archive digging!

I studied/lived/worked in Uppsala 1994 - 2008 and I still go there once a year or so. In other words, I know some of the streets and buildings that existed already in the 1800s. Uppsala is a beautiful city, especially the older parts. Maybe I can help in some specific cases.

However, it seems like you find more stuff and know more things than I do.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for that! It’s precisely what I’m looking for, and I was looking for it for months!

Aha  :lol: 
I'm glad to see someone likes it too. 
If anyone wants to take their players out of Sweden and needs 19th century maps of big cities, ask me... I have dozens of them. London, Paris, Edinburgh, Cairo, Rome... I have them all.  :geek:
I don't suppose you have a 19th century map for Newcastle-Upon-Tyne do you?

There are plenty of old folk tales and mysteries surrounding the city from that era and earlier that could be turned into a Vaesen mystery.
