About the adventure

The blood moon is upon us and will produce a power long sought after by most: true immortality. Supernaturals and non supernaturals alike have gathered at the Hotel Cotegra from all over the city. But only one may have immortality. Who will power move in favor of? And what things are happening just below the surface taht could change the city forever? This will be an Urban Shadows one shot set in modern day Los Angeles. It is very player centric; the choices made both in character creation and throughout will determine the type of story that is told. Be prepared for drama, plot twists, and much suspense.

How to prepare

You must have a working webcam and microphone. Also make sure you have a discord, Zoom, and Roll20 account (all are free). You can either roll your own dice or use Roll20 for that.

What I provide

I will provide any PDFs and handouts necessary. This includes maps, playbooks, reference sheets, etc.

Gameplay details

Urban Shadows is a Powered by the Apocalypse political urban fantasy game. It is not your typical "adventuring party" TTRPG. Most of the campaign will not be spent with every character in the same scenes. There may be whole sessions where your character does not see another PC. Rather, play will proceed with me cycling through scenes with each PC determined by where they are headed or who they want to talk to in order to accomplish the goals that they set. Possible content warnings include violence, betrayal, supernatural themes, and death. Safety tools that will be used are open table policy; lines and veils; X, N, and O cards; and stars and wishes.
