Stop by and learn to play this exciting urban fantasy RPG system to change up your roleplaying routine! No materials necessary, and players of all experience levels are welcome. However, please note that Urban Shadows does occasionally explore mature themes, so it is probably best suited for older players.

Urban Shadows is an urban fantasy roleplaying game where you’ll play characters struggling to survive in a dark urban environment drowning in supernatural politics. The game focuses heavily on the gritty drama and tense violence that we see so often in works like The Dresden Files, Angel and Supernatural. The mechanics push the story forward toward exciting and unexpected ends; your actions are resolved with minimal rules and maximum drama.

You wield immense power but be careful: absolute power corrupts absolutely. Urban Shadows features a unique Corruption mechanic, which helps track your character’s descent into darkness. When you take a life, give in to your monstrous nature, or cross a line you shouldn’t, you mark corruption. As you gain corruption, you will unlock new and very potent powers that allow your character to get what they want. The dark side of your nature bears productive fruit. Power is never free though. Cross the line too often and you’ll lose your protagonist to the dark. Corruption is a downward spiral that will suck your character into the darkness; not everyone is cut out to make it back from the brink. As your character gains new corruption abilities, you will face a difficult choice: will you give up what you’ve gained to save yourself?
