You open your eyes, and find the whole world broken; the past you knew washed away in blood and fire, and

the world all but consumed by the children of nightmares.

The dead, denied their rest by the Song of the Mother, howl for the communion of all flesh - the end of
mankind. Slavers scour the wastelands looking for the unfortunate and unwanted, wars of faith consume what
remains of mankind’s precious resources, and the cults of long-forgotten gods rise to prominence and proclaim
their bloody dominance once more.

By all rights, you should close your eyes again; let the comforting darkness, or Mother’s Song consume you.
However, you, and those like you, are different. Against all odds, for better or for ill, you hold on to what it is
that makes you human. Against the onslaught of the coming darkness, you refuse to yield, refuse to die, and
choose to live.

The path ahead isn’t easy, but your rebirth grants you strength few beings can match – the power to
drive back mankind’s enemies, and the power to rule, to be saviour or destroyer.
Will you redeem mankind’s Sins, or draw us forever into the Darkness? Only one thing
is certain; your story has just begun.

Nemissary Art 01

At its heart, Sins is a narrative role-playing game, specifically focused on telling the stories of powerful entities known as Nemissaries, in a mysterious post-apocalyptic world inhabited by an undead hivemind known as the Brood. Sins is a game about choice, and the consequences which come from wielding great and terrible power. It’s also about horror and survival in an unforgiving world fraught with danger, where even the Nemissaries’ great power won’t necessarily protect them.

Sins runs on a highly-praised, unique D6 dice pool engine, which keeps games fast, fluid and narratively driven. Intricate but simple mechanics tie character development with mechanical progression, and cooperative storytelling mechanics ensure compelling narrative arcs occur in every game, driven by the player characters. 

This book is fully illustrated with evocative artwork by the acclaimed artist Will Kirkby, whose previous work includes cover work for several major Dark Horse Comic titles, guest covers for Critical Role comics and his own self-published Wraith King artbook and Grenade graphic novel. 

SINS: DEAD CITY is a gripping, fast-paced introduction to the world of SINS. Concisely packed with several hours of thrilling survival-horror gameplay, Dead City takes 5 players through branching plotlines against ever-evolving adversaries as they fight to survive one apocalypse, only to be thrown into a desperate struggle to survive another.

Dead city is a 3-5 hour horror survival game with a few twists and turns along the way. Players will assume the roles of 5 pre-written character sheets, and play with a demo version of the SINS engine for ease of play.

No prior experience with the full SINS game is required - this is a quick-start guide designed for beginners.

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.
