Hit the streets of a modern-day City where everyone is a legend but no-one can tell. Solve strange cases, from personal crimes-of-passion to city-wide mastermind schemes, committed by ordinary people with legendary powers. Create complicated and deeply-motivated characters worthy of the big screen and embark on a gritty investigation that will expose not only the sordid facts, but also the truth about who you are.



City of Mist is an award-winning game about a City where legends incarnate in ordinary people, published by Son of Oak Game Studio. Since its release last year, it has been widely praised for its setting, art, and gameplay, which balances narrative and crunch using an original tag-based system (an offshoot of Apocalypse World Engine).



Nights of Payne Town is a kickstarter project aimed at expanding the City of Mist product line, and also the title of the first product goal: a story arc book with 10 cases (adventures). Among the other stretch goals are the Shadows & Showdowns expansion (prev. the Campaign Book); a revised Core Book split into two books: the Player Guide and MC Toolkit; a brand new Starter Box; a solo adventure book, Killing Her Softly; and many more cases, add-ons, hacks, and expansions.



Help us expand the world of City of Mist by backing our Kickstarter project and be the first to enjoy these new products as well as special Kickstarter bonus content!

 More on “Nights of Payne Town” Story Arc Book:



Nights of Payne Town is a story arc book for City of Mist RPG: ten (10) individual cases (adventures) that MCs can run either as one-shots or as an ongoing story arc, following the insidious operation of an all-powerful Avatar. Each case will include everything you need to run the game: a teaser for your players, the backstory, locations, clues, Danger statblocks, and maps. As always, the book will be masterfully-designed and packed with stunning art by Marcin Sobon and the Son of Oak team. You can run Nights of Payne Town with the free Starter Set pregen characters or create your own characters using the City of Mist Core Book or Player Guide.



In Nights of Payne Town, your crew starts picking at the small cases: a gifted hustler named Goldie falls prey to a deadly hate crime; the City’s finest youths disappear, with evidence hinting at sacrificial ritual; a new designer drug hits the streets, made especially for awakened legends; and a self-proclaimed mafia king takes the blue-collar neighborhood under his protection. To get to the truth, your crew will have to crack cryptic crime scenes, schmooze your way through hard-headed bouncers and greasy tycoons, and face off with modern-day sorcerers and monsters. But are you ready for what you’ll find? As you pull the threads, the bigger picture transpires: a monumental, misguided attempt to heal the City has left it permanently wounded. Now the pain of the past haunts you too, but you are the only one who can stop it from tearing your City apart.
