City of Mist District: Independence

Watermarked PDF

This is a supplement for the City of Mist RPG, compatible with the Core Books bundle which includes the Player's Guide and the MC Toolkit


A District of African-American Folk Heroes Fighting Oppression

Independence isn’t just a district. It’s friends, it’s family, it’s community. You don’t get to choose your neighborhood family, and may not even like them, but you can rely on them to have your back against the rest of the world. Then they may cheat you out of a ten spot for their trouble. Family, right?

Broiling underneath the warm community is a struggle for freedom. Independence has been the testing grounds of a Gatekeeper experiment in social oppression and a home for movements trying to resist it. This social atrocity has been managed by an autonomous and covert division of the Gatekeepers titled Ward 9.

This standalone PDF describes a new district in the City setting for the City of Mist RPG: the welcoming family of Independence. You can use this new district in your game to:

Enhance themes of freedom vs. oppression. The people of Independence face systematic oppression on a daily basis by the clone army and Gatekeepers of Ward 9, making this district the ideal setting for stories and characters that revolve around freedom fighting.

  • Play Independence’s story arc. Independence features a formidable enemy – Ward 9 – whose impregnable headquarters is impossible to storm without additional support. The crew must first complete missions to gain the trust of the local crew – Bishop’s Crew, represented as Ally themes – and together mount an attack to take down Ward 9.
  • Find support, in more ways than one. Crew members who are in need of help can find a home in the welcoming community of Independence. The members of Bishop’s Crew are accomplished, honest, and helpful Rifts that can be recruited to help with the lead characters’ problems (especially if the crew can help with theirs) and many of the district’s people act with the same spirit of hospitality.
  • Uncover the origins of the Mist. It could be that the Town Hall of Independence is nothing less than the birthplace of the Mist, or at least of the Gatekeepers’ organization. The Mist’s original secrets might also be lost in the Old Fort’s endless battles, although venturing into the Mist-less Fort grounds may prove to be a psychedelic, life-changing experience

City of Mist is a comic-book film-noir RPG, where you play ordinary individuals with legendary powers and hit the streets of a haunted modern-day city in search for answers. With a simple but powerful narrative game system and unique character motivation and evolution mechanics, City of Mist will let you experience just what happens when everyday life on the streets awakens to unfathomable mythical forces from within.

Original electronic
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.
