View Full Version : Looking for a good Urban Fantasy game

2014-06-12, 10:26 PM
Anyone know a good urban fantasy game? I'd like options for human+ but I don't want anything crazy. I don't want something cute either. Something with good mechanics & some crunch would be nice. & maybe something without character classes.

Please don't suggest FUDGE FATE or GURPS or any other generic game system, unless it's really really good

Shadowrun in the main one that comes to mind. There's also D20 Modern, never tried it.

Shadowrun would be good except that it is more focused on espionage & have future tech in it. I dont want either evem though i really like the system

Only other one I can think of is Twilight 2020. The setting is post nuclear war near future, but you can use your own setting instead. The tech level should be right.

Dresden Files RPG, based on FATE. Dunno if that counts as generic for you or not.

I've played modern-day cop procedural adventures based on "Now Playing" (http://carnivoregames.com/wp/?page_id=36) (PDF can be bought here (http://paizo.com/products/btpy83gw?Now-Playing-Roleplaying-Game)), which is a rulebook to turn any TV show into a roleplaying game based on Fudge. It worked quite well for me.

I'm not sure what Urban Fantasy is, nor "crazy", but would Hunter - The Vigil (or other WoD games) qualify?

Also, Eberron is technically Urban Fantasy.

Changeling: The Dreaming might be an option?

WoD works.

By urban fantasy I mean. Modern day + magic/supernatural

WoD is really the largest urban fantasy system that I know of. There's so many different things you can do with it and most of it isn't totally crazy.
