So, the "official" RPG "Tales of New Crobuzon" has been "in the works" for at least 6 years. Translation: it's dead and never coming out. So I got tired of waiting. So, here's my go at it.

This incorporates the info from the old Dragon Magazine. Well, a lot of it, anyway. If I came across things that didn't make any bloody sense, I changed things up. All told, that info is only about 10-20% of the final length.

If you've read the Bas-Lag trilogy, you know that China Mieville isn't usually keen on going into great detail on races, places, gods, etc., so in order to make a proper guide, I had to make a LOT of stuff up from scratch. I did my best, but I am not a professional writer, and if you don't like certain tidbits or ideas, no one will come break down your door and arrest you for changing them.

Obvious Disclaimer of Obviousness: This is a fan project. No money is being made on this. The only artwork that is "mine" are the maps that I created with Campaign Cartographer. Terms, rules, etc., are property of China Mieville, his publishers, Wizards of the Coast, Piazo, etc etc.

You should be able to access and download the guide here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0vwOvklTLzaRVBHaGRBaG9JQ1E/view?usp=sharing

Here are some samples:

I'm pretty stoked to see something like this. I'll have to skim it over for sure.
Also your title kinda made me think it was one of those spam threads. Might want to revise that.

Great work. But you are wrong regarding the official game. I'm sure New-Crobuzon rpg will be published alongside Gareth-Michael's Far West. :smalltongue:
