City of Mist Case: Killing Her Softly

Watermarked PDF

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

Killing Her Softly

A Heartbreaking Case Of Soulful Jazz And Haunting Death 

A soulful jazz singer needs the crew’s help with deciphering a series of mysterious killings that circle her in a vicious ghost dance. From Downtown to Suburbia, people drop dead unexpectedly clutching their broken hearts, with the mysterious killer still rampant. As the body count rises, will the crew be able to save the City’s residents from this haunting angel of death?

Killing Her Softly is a classic neo-noir "whodunit" investigation in which the crew traces the footsteps of a mysterious serial killer. Against the backdrop of a dicey jazz club and dirty alleyways, the crew examines crime scenes, crosses paths with NPCs from different walks of life, and overcomes altercations with dubious underworld figures.

Killing Her Softly is a case from Nights of Payne Town, a story-arc book for City of Mist. This case is also featured in the Personal Vein bundle, a sub-arc from Nights of Payne Town.

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.

Excellent! Complex, plenty of red herrings, some good places for the PCs to screw up and shut off leads without shutting out the rest of the story. Shame the title of the piece is basically a dead giveaway of the plot, but that's hardly the end of [...]

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.
