Cassie's Journal, October 'The nights have changed. Ever since Victoria's coven of petty vampires moved in on Murdoch's territory last month, things have been bloody. Even the Fae have been tightening the strings on the cops and the mayor. It's an unstable situation. But that just means I've got them where I want them. I've been fighting against the bloodsuckers for more than 10 years now, an antivirus cleaning out the city's veins, running down the dead who crawl back up from their graves like vermin that don't know their place. And for the first time, I'm not alone. I've got friends. Marcus and his pack of werewolves that control the streets around my safe house. Bethany has access to something she calls 'Sapphire' magic, whatever that is, and Felicia... well... I've seen her die and get back up more times than I can count. We all owe people, owe favors, owe debts. But people owe us too. And we're ready to call in those markers to put Victoria in my crosshairs. She'll pay for what she did to my father, to my sister. She'll pay. No matter what it costs me.' Urban Shadows is an urban fantasy roleplaying game where you'll play characters struggling to survive in a dark urban environment drowning in supernatural politics. The game focuses heavily on the gritty drama and tense violence that we see so often in works like The Dresden Files, Angel and Supernatural. The rules for Urban Shadows are based on Apocalypse World, an award winning RPG by Vincent Baker that also fuels games like Dungeon World, Monsterhearts, and Sagas of the Icelanders. The mechanics push the story forward toward exciting and unexpected ends; your actions are resolved with minimal rules and maximum drama.
