My new game Cold City

Post  Mr Nay on Tue Dec 28, 2010 12:43 pm


Here is an intro to a game I picked up just before xmas. It is 1950 Berlin and the pcs are hunting the monstrous results of nazi experiments.

Cold City

Berlin, 1950: World War 2 has been over for five years...

...but another war carries on in the shadows.


As the Cold War rages in the full glare of the world media, the Underground War is fought in ruined bunkers, dank tunnels, building sites, and bombed out apartment blocks.

In the divided city of Berlin, the Reserve Police Agency hunts down monsters left over from sinister experiments and twisted technology. Things from beyond our space and time, strange creatures altered by bizarre machines, the decayed corpses of undead soldiers, things that hide in the darkness.

But the Reserve Police Agency itself is riven by suspicion, mistrust and political ambition. The four occupying powers of Britain, France, the USA and the USSR all see the need for the RPA, all contribute personnel, all have their own agendas.

In 'Cold City' you take the role of a member of the RPA, those secretive Cold War monster hunters. Characters are defined not just by who they are and what they are like, but by the views of the other characters and the trust that they have in them. For each character is, at the outset, seen as a national stereotype, a cliched representative of their chosen nation. But is this really the case? Do they live up to the stereotype or do they show themselves to be wholly unique individuals? And how does this affect the trust that the other character have in them?

Top secret researchers is a fine concept for an RPA agent, field researchers would be even more fun, lol. What are a-cults?
The game kind of reminds me of Hellboy crossed with Resistance: Retribution, in a cold war conspiracy package.
