THE DARKNESS RISES. WILL YOU JOIN IT?

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 try to find some place safe to ride out the coming storm?

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. This supplement details new rules and settings for Urban Shadows, including:

  • Four new character Archetypes, each pushing the boundaries of Urban Shadows' themes and mechanics: The Hallowed, The Revenant, The Scholar, and The Vessel.
  • Essays from the game's creators — Andrew Medeiros and Mark Diaz Truman — on running campaigns in historical eras and creating your own custom playbooks.
  • 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!

Urban Shadows makes use of the same rules-light 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. 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. 

The streets are waiting for you. What will you make of their promises and lies?

Really digging it so far, especially the notes about playbook design and playtesting! A couple of questions:

1) The chapter about Kichijoji is entitled "Kichijojiby", but that term is only mentioned in the title. The Urban Shadows G+ page is actually the only Google search result for it. Is it a typo?
2) Are there any plans to do a .mobi and/or .epub conversion? I really enjoyed reading Urban Shadows on my phone and Kindle.

Thanks for an enjoyable read!

Great! Will there be a way for UK/European/Non-USA customers to get them without crazy postal pricing?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
