Welcome to The City. There is no escape.

 

 

Children tilt down alleys, chanting bloody nursery rhymes, while withered men shout warnings from tenement windows.

Factory workers crowd sweating into cable cars, hoping their pay will last the week. Aerostats roar above them, bearing the rich to luminous towers.

 

Under gas lamps and flickering electrics, the Provosts pull a body from a canal, a ceramic blade jammed in its chest. You know the truth: this wasn’t a robbery gone wrong. In a distant office, a red line was drawn across a map, and now your home is in danger.

This is the story of how you fight back.

new edition

Cult favourite role-playing game a|state is back in an exciting new edition.

 


 

 

  • Legendary game setting The City returns, loaded with mesmerising and unsettling detail. The new edition of A|State is Forged in the Dark. Experience The City through intense, fiction-first role-playing.
  • Create your own corner of The City and protect it from the powerful factions who want to tear it down.
  • Choose from seven playbooks, including the lethal Ghostfighter, the savvy Mapmaker, and the dogged Lostfinder.
  • Encounter the Shifted and other strange mysteries of The City, a closed environment you can never leave.

You will never forget The City… but The City will forget you.

nicely, done

In the Second Edition of a|state you and your friends will define a corner of The City, and set about defending it and making it a better place to live. We’ve fine-tuned the Forged in the Dark rules to fit the themes and tone of a|state and The City.
In advance of our Kickstarter for the main rulebook, Nicely, Done with its primer to The City is available to everyone now for free. There is also a print version on its way.

We gathered 40 groups who are familiar with Forged in the Dark games, willing to give our playtest scenario, Nicely, Done a go. With two rounds of external playtesting complete, we're happy that Nicely, Done gives you a great intro to what we're doing.

We recommend familiarity with Forged in the Dark games to run Nicely, Done.
