City of Mist Case: Carnival of Machines

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

Carnival of Machines

A Creepy Case of Mechanical Desires and Killer Rides 

When a Rift love triangle ends in a tragic car crash at a Downtown junction, the crew must trace the chain of events back to its source. Was this just another sad story, so common in this City, or did a guiding hand have a part in this?

The deeper they delve into the case, the crew is led down a path from which they can’t escape, possibly towards the same end as the victims of the crime they are investigating!

Carnival of Machines is a neo-noir murder investigation that pivots into a classic comic book “death trap” scheme.

In its moody first half, the crew unfolds the personal misfortune of three Rifts who become magically involved with one another. The crew must reveal the scheme behind the tragedies and survive the wicked ploys of an evil Rift mastermind, bent on killing them and those like them!

This case also features an NPC on a crash course, Goldie, whose fate is determined by the actions of the players!

Carnival of Machines 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.

Absolutely brilliant. The utterly wild combination of Rifts is my favorite part of City of Rifts, and this one doesn't hesitate for a moment before slamming together utterly incompatible mythologies. Plus, the abandoned carnival may seem cliche wh [...]

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.
