We’re spending today at the Origins Game Fair, so hopefully I’ll have all kinds of games and info to share with you over the next few game night posts. One of the games I’m hoping to see while I’m here is a new release from Evil Hat Productions.
I’m not really into Role Playing Games, but I still have to at least check The Dresden Files RPG out. After all it’s based on a book series that David and I both enjoy and a world I always get a kick out of visiting.
Here’s the blurb for Volume 1:
Beneath the “normal” surface of the world are things and people which most of us don’t want to know about, and will do our best to forget about if we ever come near them. People won’t see what they don’t want to see.
But that’s most of us. And you—you’re not most of us.
What’s Your Story?
Whether you’re a champion of God, changeling, vampire, werewolf, wizard, or plain “vanilla” mortal human being, this volume of The Dresden Files RPG gives you all the rules you need to build characters and tell your own stories in the Dresdenverse. Inside, you’ll uncover the secrets of spellcasting, the extents of mortal and supernatural power, and the hidden occult reality of the unfamiliar city you call home.
We are wizards, cops, mechanics, werewolves, doctors, fairies, mobsters, reporters, holy warriors, and vampires.
We call upon the dark powers of the Nevernever—or the darkness in human nature.
We are the monsters living next door or lurking behind a friendly face.
This is the Dresdenverse.
This is Our World.
This volume of The Dresden Files RPG gives you extensive detail on the factions, creatures, foes, and allies of the Dresdenverse. You’ll find over 200 creatures and characters complete with all the information you’ll need to bring them into your own game, as well as a detailed chapter on modern-day Occult Chicago by Kenneth Hite, and an original short story by Jim Butcher.
Together with Volume One: Your Story, The Dresden Files RPG: Our World gives you everything you need to make your own adventures in the thrilling and dangerous world of New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series!
Might just be enough to make me want to become a White Court Vampire for an evening.
