City of Mist District: Tourist Trap


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

Tourist Trap:

A Flashy District of Wide-Eyed Tourists and Dangerous Pleasures

If you’re looking for a crowd, the Tourist Trap can provide, day or night. When the sun is up, families spend money in the many attractions the district has to offer. After dark is when the adults come out to play: dancing, drinking, flirting, and getting high in the district’s establishments of debauchery.

In the Tourist Trap, everything – legal or otherwise – is tacky, flashy, and overpriced. Some of the stores are shipping in more than what’s advertised in their catalogues. There is a market for high-grade, expensive drugs, fake IDs, and even weapons that come through the Tourist Trap.

The Tourist Trap is a chance for Rifts to access the endless resources of the world beyond the City, even if they don’t really care about that world...

This standalone PDF describes a new district in the City setting for the City of Mist RPG: the tacky and colorful Tourist Trap. Here are some examples of how to use the included locations, NPCs, and Dangers:

  • The perfect setting for cases involving victims of a wild night gone wrong. Out-of-towners and locals alike who come here to drown their sorrows, end up as the prey of the many predators of the Tourist Trap. Whether their loved one come looking for them or the crew takes on cleaning up this seedy den of inequity, opportunities abound for noir investigations beneath the light of the Ferris wheel.

  • A place for PCs to lose themselves and forget their troubles, setting the stage for some interesting role-playing moments. When a player character wishes to go on a self-destructive binge, the Tourist Trap welcomes her with open arms… although by morning, she’ll have more troubles than she started with.

  • A colorful backdrop for shady acquisitions of unique items. As an entry point into the City and a mercantile center, the Tourist Trap features high on the City’s hot locations for smuggling contraband. If the PCs are after a special artifact or commodity, word on the street is they can get it here.

  • Enhancing themes of superficiality. The Tourist Trap is made of cheap plastic and bright colors, and behind them... nothing. Noir wouldn’t be what it is without the lead characters going on anti-social rants about the corruption of modern-day culture, and  this place can provide them with all the ammunition they need.

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.

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.
