The Nature of The Game – Unhallowed Metropolis is a dark horror fable written and created by Jason Soles and Nicole Vega. Inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Nikola Tesla and painstakingly researched by the authors, the game is steeped heavily in Victorian history and science to provide a rich role-playing experience. A Dark World - Set two hundred years in a terrifying London, after the advent of the Zombie Plague, it has taken decades for the survivors to learn to fight back, to retake what they had lost. Recalling the golden age that had come before, the Neo-Victorians set out to rebuild their shattered world. Despite the heavy cost in human life, their cities were reclaimed one by one until only the sepulchers, or plague-cities, remained under death's dominion. Though the survivors had succeeded constructing a new world on the bones of the old, it is a world rife with terrors undreamt of.
What You Can Play – In the Blighted world of Unhallowed Metropolis, there are many Callings to which players can rise to the occasion; the gritty, bounty-hunting Undertakers; the silent celibate knife-wielding Mourners; the coldly analytical Doctors; and the frightening halfblood children of the vampires, the Dhampiri. All of these Callings and more are available to play, allowing players to cut their own swath in their own way in the world.
Fast Rules – Unhallowed Metropolis follows the Eos Press model for roleplaying games – in other words, it has rules custom-designed and playtested to emulate and enhance play in its world. Play is both gritty and fast, befitting the brutal nature of a world dominated by the Undead.
Plenty to Do – Characters in Unhallowed Metropolis can solve mysteries, fight against the unending hordes of the Undead, wheel and deal in places of power, check the infiltration of vampires into the upper classes, burn out sepulchers and try to return them to a habitable state and much more!
