Modiphius has a new RPG series up and available now in their webshop. City of Mist puts players in a dark and gritty world as detectives in a city where magic and myth invade the real world on a regular basis. These mean streets are stalked by just your average gang members and junkies. Thankfully, you yourself have some pretty awesome powers at your beck and call. But what sacrifices have to be made in order to evoke them?
