Noir crime fiction and old-school fantasy gaming meet in City of Solstice: a fantasy game setting for OSR games, set in a city run by criminal gangs from fan-favorite RPG writer Chuck Rice.
The City of Solstice is a low-magic fantasy campaign set in an ancient city, now ruled by the forces of evil.
The PCs in the campaign are members of the Vigilant, the city watch. Imagine if “The Untouchables” were set in a fantasy city, rather than 1920’s Chicago. In addition to the criminal Star Society who control the city, there are gangs, petty crime, and corrupt guards to deal with, along with every sort of crime you can imagine: murder, drugs, and theft.
But this is still a fantasy world, filled with magic both wondrous and terrifying. A man might hire The Menagerie, a gang who use captured beasts from the wilderness as instruments of murder, to kill his wife. A necromancer might stumble into undead-filled catacombs long forgotten underneath the city, and take control of the undead there, to start his own burgeoning criminal empire.
City of Solstice features:
- New Spells and Magic
- New Magic Items.
- New classes.
- 12 Wards, fully mapped and described. Dozens of NPCs with plot hooks, secrets, lies, and agendas.
