Magic has returned to our world
“I think becoming a wizard is about discovering what’s real and what isn’t.”
—Ben Aaronovitch, Rivers of London
In Rivers of London: the Roleplaying Game, players take on the roles of newly recruited members of the London Metropolitan Police Service’s special magic branch, aka “the Folly.” You will solve mysteries, catch criminals, and come to grips with the “demi-monde”—those who have been irreversibly changed by magic.
