City of Mist Case: Cult of the God-King

City of Mist Case: Cult of the God-King


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

Cult of the God-King

A Cryptic Case of Arcane Secrets and Zealous Sacrifices 

You can hear it whispered on the cobbled streets of the Old Quarter, in the murmur of the ocean by the docks, echoing down abandoned, candle-lit subway tunnels. It’s like an ancient spell or a mumbled recipe, a spark that lights the melting fire.

They are gathering, they have awakened, and now they must serve their forgotten master. Do you, like them, seek enlightenment or power untold? What are you willing to sacrifice to the God-King?

Cult of the God-King is a psychological thriller following a mystical journey for self-transformation, guided by a mysterious and shady cult. Lead characters can attempt the journey themselves as spiritual seekers or they can play the cynics and iconoclasts and attempt
to decipher the cult’s true motives before it’s too late.

As the culmination of the cult’s Great Work approaches and the stakes become higher and higher, lead characters will break, switch sides, attain a deeper understanding of the City, and reveal their true nature.

This case takes a headlong dive into the occult circles of the City, exploring the rich lore of medieval alchemy as a path to spiritual evolution and combining it with the mystery of the City and the Mist. It plays best when at least one PC joins the cult and is willing to go all the way to find answers.

Cult of the God-King is a case from the upcoming Nights of Payne Town, a story-arc book for City of Mist. This case will also be featured in the upcoming Mystical 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.

File Size:
3.31 MB
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.
