[Pelgrane Press] Mutant City Blues

A stand-alone GUMSHOE game of contemporary super powers

Ten years ago, 1% of the population gained mutant powers.
1% of the citizens means 1% of the criminals!
...and you're the cops who clean up the mess.

EVER SINCE the Sudden Mutation Event, people have been able to fly. Phase through walls. Read minds. Shoot bolts of energy from their fingertips. Walk into dreams.

Police work will never be the same.

AS MEMBERS OF the elite Heightened Crime Investigation Unit, you and your fellow detectives solve crimes involving the city's mutant community. When a mutant power is used to kill, you catch the case. When it's a mutant victim in the chalk outline, you get the call. And when it comes time for a fight, you deploy your own extraordinary abilities to even the odds.

Mutant City Blues is available at RPGNow.com.

[Shadowrun] Bad Moon Rising Scenario

In Bad Moon Rising in the East, a team of shadowrunners are hired to track down the source of a new drug shipping into Hong Kong. Directly connected to the Ghost Cartels campaign, the team of six Caracas natives are thrust into a criminal underworld far from their home. With few contacts to turn to, they may find themselves deeply involved in a vicious underworld conflict.

This 22-page scenario was used for the Gen Con 2008 Shadowrun tournament. While it may be used with other characters, the included team of shadowrunners are fully fleshed out with contacts, backgrounds, and motivations. This complete package allows for a night or two of Shadowrun with little prep work for the gamemaster or the players.

Bad Moon Rising in the East totals 37 pages, with 1 cover/credits page, 21 pages of scenario, 3 pages with 1 map each, and 12 pages of pregenerated characters: Covert Ops, Face, Hacker, Melee Artist, Pistol Adept, Shaman
