The Darkness Rises. Will You Heed Its Call?
The hum of the city is an ever-present friend, a reminder that no place is safe from the politics of the concrete jungle. Will you rise to meet the wolves at the door? Or will you join them yourself on their wild hunt?
The choice is yours.
Dark Streets is the first supplement for Urban Shadows, an urban fantasy tabletop roleplaying game in which mortals and monsters vie for control of a modern-day city. Dark Streets expands on the game’s original vision to offer new choices, new settings, and new mechanics that will engage experienced and new players alike.
This supplement details new rules and settings for Urban Shadows, including:
- Four new character Archetypes, each expanding the boundaries of Urban Shadows‘ themes and mechanics: The Hallowed, The Revenant, The Scholar, and The Vessel.
- Six city guides set in diverse urban centers like Los Angeles, Bangalore, and London, each designed to flesh out your game with exciting and involving fiction.
- A detailed look at New York City, a unique setting guide that features Threats, custom moves, and NPCs across the sprawling metropolis of the five boroughs!
- Essays from the game’s creators–Andrew Medeiros and Mark Diaz Truman–on running campaigns in historical eras and creating your own custom playbooks.
Urban Shadows makes use of the same rules-light game engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, and Dungeon World—while drawing on fiction as diverse as The Wire, The Dresden Files, and The Shield—to create a game of urban politics and supernatural drama.
The streets are waiting for you. What will you make of their promises and lies?
