About the adventure

Thats what It does to you; not just the city herself, but the Mist..." Welcome to the gritty, narrative focused investigative game, City of Mist. Its a TTRPG Powered by the Apocalypse system. In this game, you'll learn not just about character creation and how the system works, but about the dark, mysterious setting that is City of Mist.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a working mic and discord. I can provide the starter guide or an explanation of gameplay. You wont need a character sheet per say, but a notebook or notepad is a minimum. Access to a printer is best to be able to print off a character sheet and status card sheet. Think of a legend you wish your character to embody (a legend can be any person, fictional or real, an idea, a place, and animal, ect.)

What I provide

The story, starter guide/cheat sheet of moves, pdf printables of the character sheet and status card sheet.

Gameplay details

This series contains the following content: Mild to strong language, violence, hatred and self-loathing, mental and emotional health and crises, obsessions, mild mind control, drug use, alcohol use and religious zealotry. All of this content is spread out throughout the game and some topics may be glossed over if need be. All sessions will have a content warning for what specifically will be involved with each case as we play. The game itself is rules light, leaving the power to the players in a very cinematic setting.

How will character creation work

We can work together to either create a character of your own or choose from several of the premade characters I own or have created. From there, we will help create backstory and personal relationships for your character along with the party and form them into a solid crew, prepared to take on the world.
