RPG Games We Recommend: Urban Shadows – Second Edition by MAGPIE

Magpie Games is crowdfunding a second edition of their popular roleplaying game Urban Shadows.

The PBTA RPG is one of dark urban fantasy/horror and dire political machinations.

The Kickstarter is nearing the 1000% funding mark and you can reserve a copy of the corebook and unlocked stretch goals.

With PDFs, for a $39.00 pledge or just the PDFs for a $19.00 pledge through November 19th.

In 2014, Magpie Games launched a Kickstarter for Urban Shadows, an Ennie award-winning tabletop roleplaying game of political urban fantasy that quickly became their flagship titles.

For years, fans have praised both the game’s effortless explanation of the Powered by the Apocalypse engine and the groundbreaking content on race and urban communities.

Leading Urban Shadows to be a favorite of urban fantasy gamers, podcasters, and streamers alike.

Expected delivery is December of next year.

Urban Shadows is a political urban fantasy tabletop roleplaying game in which mortals and supernaturals alike vie for power in a modern-day city.

Vampires, faeries, hunters, wizards, and more clash in the shadow.

Or make backroom deals for their piece of the streets and skyscrapers. No one is ever safe, and everything is always at stake.

In Urban Shadows, you play unique and powerful archetypes, protagonists who are attuned to the supernatural world.

While the mortal world remains ignorant of the struggles of the city’s supernatural denizens, you are caught in the middle of the physical conflicts and political drama of the city’s past, present, and future.

You might be a spectre bound to an artifact, unable to move on until you’ve resolved your trauma.

Or you might be a clever vampire who controls the best blood supply in the city, caught up in a war between your kind and those who hunt you.

Or you might be a veteran of your city’s ancient conflicts, someone who got out of the game but keeps getting drawn back in by friends and allies.

No matter who you are, you contain within you the power to shape the city’s destiny. What future will you choose? And what will your victories cost you?

Urban Shadows is based on the Powered by the Apocalypse system used by tabletop RPGs like Apocalypse World, Dungeon World, and many of Magpie Games’s own titles.

The game uses the core framework of that system to provide a strong, simple way to create your own stories of political urban fantasy.

You’ll create a character using one of several archetypes, and then you’ll take action, rolling two six-sided dice to resolve the outcomes of dangerous and difficult situations.

Urban Shadows creates stories like those you’d find in Constantine, Diableros, The Dresden Files,
The John Wick franchise, The Last Witchhunter, Lost Girl, and The Wire.

We will be playing this amazing game and URBAN SHADOWS First Edition in our RPG Show and our friends with SABADOS EN GEEK.
