City of Mist: Shadows & Showdowns


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

Shadows & Showdowns is an expansion for City of Mist which enhances the core rules and reveals much about the City and the powers behind the Mist - and beyond it.

Take your City of Mist characters to the next level and plunge into the secret world behind the veil of the Mist!

What's in this book:

  • Chapter 1: If Dreams Could Kill, provides players new options for character creation and development. Six new themebooks, 50 new veteran improvements, ranging from deeper Mist awareness and control to enhancing your character's Mythos abilities, 24 ready-to-use Relic and Familiar theme kits, and a concept guide for quick and easy character building, complete with character creation tables using Legendary Archetypes and Noir Tropes.

  • Chapter 2: Overlooked Attractions, explores 40 new City locations and intriguing locals to use on-the-fly in your campaign. It introduces some of the City's most prominent movers and shakers, best-kept secret hideouts, and the ‘who’s who’ of street-level information brokering, all designed for a specific narrative situation such as the crew seeking more information, recovering from a violent encounter, or requiring arbitration or mediation with an Avatar.

  • Chapter 3: Don’t Believe The Truth, reveals the council of Avatars that runs the City, their individual operations, Rifts in their service, and the details of their shadowy agreement to maintain the status quo in the City. This chapter includes 6 new Avatar profiles of the reigning members of 'the Truth' - Chairman Chow (Tanhā, the buddhist force of desire), Ganesha (Ganesha, the elephant-headed Indian god who is the Remover of Obstacles), District Attorney Barbara King (Shango, the Orisha of Power and Dominion), Dr. Talbot Leyland (Prometheus), Rosaline (Romeo & Juliet), and Monte Wolfe (The Boy Who Cried Wolf).

  • Chapter 4: Suits Unveiled, takes a deep dive into the Mist and its origins and into the secret organization behind it: the Gatekeepers. It offers an answer to the biggest question of them all - "What is the Mist?" - but mostly gives MCs the tools to create their own unique answers and backstories to the Gatekeeper organization and to the origins and nature of the Mist. Players will find complete rules for playing Gatekeeper characters or turning their Rift characters into Gatekeepers, including three new themebooks (Shrouding, Advanced Art, and Unit) and dozens of ready-to-use pick-and-play theme kits.

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.
