The streets bleed shadows…
Urban Shadows is an urban fantasy game of supernatural drama and political intrigue set in a modern-day city. Some of the characters in this story are mortal, but they are caught up in a world of supernatural debts and obligations.
Urban Shadows is a game about cities, the people who live in them, and the machines that make them run. It’s a political game, one that challenges preconceptions about conflicts between communities, and asks players to navigate complex identities in a demanding social structure. It is personal and political for mortals and monsters alike.
