Drop Dead City

Drop Dead City


Haunting melodies and cries of anguish resonate up through the tunnels below the city of the living, up from Drop Dead City. The city beneath a city, an artistic commune unlike any other, packed to the gills with artists who chose eternal unlife over relinquishing their offbeat creative expression, could be anywhere in any world: Wherever you need it to be in fact.

Drop Dead City is an undead, dark bohemian paradise just waiting to be experienced and explored. Down through the depths of the boring old city above, you can make your way to a place where artistic freedom is unrestrained, even by the shackles of death itself. Adventuring isn’t always about swords and sorcery, sometimes it can be about poems and performance art instead!

This systemless supplement will provide you with all the characters, systems and story inspiration that you need to tell your own tales in the counterculture catacombs! Whether you need a quick filler session or the centrepiece of your next campaign, the ghoulish inhabitants of Drop Dead City are here and they’re dying to meet you...

Contents include:

  • An entire cast of NPCs, from ghostly guitarists to deadbeat poets and everyone in between.
  • Lots of locations, presented in lurid detail, where the denizens of Drop Dead City work, play and push the boundaries of life after death.
  • A narrative system for working on your magnum opus, putting on groundbreaking performance art and even trying to earn a measly living from your artistic endeavours.
  • Adventure ideas, side quests and even a full outline for using Drop Dead City as the heart of your campaign.
  • A whole host of critters and creatures that inhabit the dark alleys and dilapidated living spaces of Drop Dead City.
  • Tables upon tables to randomly determine the starving artists, cheeky chancers and existential terrors that you might stumble across in Drop Dead City.

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.
