Meet the patients: Emilia Lanier

This week we are introducing you to Emilia Lanier, who was an actualt client of Simon Forman, just like the previously introduced Thomas and Alice Blague.



Emilia Lanier (née Bassano) was born into a family of Italian musicians who entertain in the English Royal Court. Precociously intelligent, and, having mastered both Latin and Greek as a child, she is said to be "mature for her age" by the significantly older men who take a romantic interest in her.

Emmilia has hopes of becoming a "poetess", which reveals a failure to grasp the historical and social context in which she lives. Perhaps a man might explain it to her?

Meet the patients: Humphrey Bell

Humphrey Bell is a young male actress famous for playing female roles upon the London stage. Though a talented player, he suffers from constant pressure from his director to be prettier, thinner and younger, allegedly to satisfy the expectations of London audiences.

As Humphrey often asserts, he is not just a pretty face. He is so much more than that. When will people realize this? And will he one day be allowed to play the greatest role of all: a man?

About This Game

London, 1592. A great plague sweeps through the capital. When doctors flee the city in fear, a hero rises. His name is Simon Forman, “Doctor” of Astrology, Astronomy and Physick. Not only does he have the power to cure the sick, he can find their lost pets and predict their futures! All by reading the movements of the stars.

But when the plague ends, Forman’s problems begin. The real doctors return to London and they will stop at nothing to bring him down...


Astrologaster is a story-rich astrological comedy set in Shakespeare’s London:
  • Guide Forman in casting and interpreting real astrological charts.
  • Help solve patients’ problems that range from Elizabethan terror plots and foul diseases, to romantic entanglements and missing spoons.
  • Gain Forman enough influence and legitimacy to obtain a medical licence and prove the London medical establishment wrong.

Simon Forman was considered a sage by some and a charlatan by others. What will your legacy be? Will you put your faith in the stars?

Based on a true story!
