In a dark, modern city, nothing is quite as it seems. You go about your everyday, ordinary life feeling that things are just “off.” Things that seem like coincidences follow a nonsense pattern. You feel as though you’re destined for much more than just the “wake up, work, come home, sleep” routine you’ve been stuck in. You feel something stirring in you (besides the leftover take-out you probably should’ve thrown away). Something… mythical. Will you embrace this new power, or will you fight against it, even as the city seems to be fighting to keep you boring and ordinary? That’s the story behind City of Mist, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players are your average, everyday sort of person, but they all have a secret: they all are host to a Mythos, a strong source of power that they can draw upon to do great deeds. The world they live in is a lie, a facade that hides away what is really going on by the Myst that seems to invade every part of the city. How will your character interact with the glimpses they’ll see of the real world? How will they work against other characters with access to their Mythos as the each work at forwarding their own agenda?
The Kickstarter campaign is doing well. They’re more than 3x funded, but there’s only 9 days left to get in on the action.
