In a city where legends are real people, heroes, tricksters, and monsters are reborn inside the ordinary. This month, City of Mist heads to Kickstarter as the game designers set the wheels in motion to expand the city limits.

City of Mist is a noir tabletop role-playing game in which you play modern-day versions of your favorite myths, legends, and fairy tales.​ Initially launched back in 2017, Son of Oak Game Studio is back with a fantastic new Starter Box, featuring a selection of pre-built characters, ruleset and an exciting mission to get your group on the road to herohood.

Inspired by the film noir and detective comic book genres, the game focuses on your crew’s search for answers in a city that seems to enshroud everything in false appearances as well as on the struggle between your character’s normal life and the legend growing inside them.

The mystical veil of the Mist hides your miraculous powers from other, sleepwalking residents of the City. It makes armor look like a flak vest and fire breathing like a cheap party trick or a gas leak explosion, so no-one ever knows about the legendary. Modern-day legends exploit this to run secret lives and insidious organizations behind the veil of the Mist. Sounds fun, right?

So, what’s in this mysterious starter box I hear you ask? Well, with the Players Guide and MC Toolkit already available, the Starter Box acts as a learn-as-you play introduction into the world and rules of City of Mist. During the course of this mini-arc, you will take on the role of one of five anti-heroes, all of which have legendary abilities and are members of the All-Seeing Eye Investigations agency. It will be your task to free the local neighborhood of Miller’s Square from the grip of a mythic-powered mafia organisation.

If you’re new to City of Mist, the Starter Box is the ideal way to immerse yourself and your crew of mythical heroes in the mist.

To get your hands on hands on a physical copy of the Starter Box, it will cost you a measly $28 however, there are many many other pledges, including Starter Set PDF version or prefer to go more digital.

To place your pledge, head over to the City of Mist Starter Box Kickstarter now. You have until December 20, 2019.
