The streets of the city were always dangerous, as far as Sarah could remember. But now, after discovering the sinister truth behind reality, even her own shadow could give her the creeps.

Dark Streets & Darker Secrets is a Street & Sorcery Rules Light Role-Playing Game with an Old School spirit, just like its predecessors: Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells and Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells.

It’s a game about modern adventures in the world we live today, only with a layer of supernatural weirdness and horror. Characters are people who have found out about the mysteries and horrors that exist in the world and have decided to do something about it, be it battle it, join it, or simply explore its possibilities in any way they see fit. They will battle evil cultists, corrupted ghosts, bloodsucking vampires, and frenzied werewolves, or maybe they will be the horrors of others. This edition of the game assumes the reader knows the principles of what role-playing games are and how they are played.

What will you get with this book? Not only you will get a complete game system for urban fantasy, action horror and street and sorcery stories, you will also find tools and generators to create cities, neighborhoods, organizations, factions, NPS, monsters, ancient and sinister artifacts, complete adventures, which can all be of great help to inspire Referees of all modern games!

So grab your leather jacket, a baseball bat and whatever you can get your hands on to put the bad monsters to rest and come explore these dark streets and unveil these darker secrets

Odd. Softcover is live. Hardcover is giving an error. Working on it.

Solitary Heroes, Page 212
"Characters can divide the damage inflicted by their attacks amongst any Opponents with an HD equal to or lower than the Difficulty of their attack roll..."
I have problems to understand this sentence. Any practical gaming example?
I have

Hey :)
Here's an example

- you are fighting against three Opponents. One has 5HD, the other two both have 2HD
- assume you have a final Difficulty of 4 on the Attack roll.
- assume you succeed and deal 8 damage.

You have some options:
1. You can deal 8 damage to the 5HD monster
2. You can deal 8 damage to any of the 2HD monsters
3. You can SPLIT 8 damage amongst the 2HD monsters, since their HD (2) are equal to or lower than your attack doll's Difficulty (4).

The rule's ratio is simple: this will help the solitary Hero breaching through a few enemies. :)

Hope this helps!

Is this game compatible out of the box with Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells and Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells?

It’s the same system as Solar Blades. Sharp Swords was made first and is getting an update soonish.

Is the lulu dust jacket version on lulu up to date with the version here? It has an earlier publication date, but not sure if that reflects when it was last updated or not.

I love the quality of lulu's dust jacket books (Very happy with solar blades, which I ordered there), but would hate to get an outdated version of the text.

Has an introductory adventure been released? If not is one in the works? I'm going to try and get this to the table at my FLGS as part of my One Shot series where I introduce new games, and having a pre-made would be of substantial value.

So are the PC’s all humans in this or are there rules for monstrous PC’s like the Vampires, werewolves and ghosts mentioned in the description?
Customer avatar

All humans, although one type of character can be a descendant of supernatural beings. There is a supplement in the works for Supernatural characters though.

There is an unofficial zine supplement for Vampires:

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.
