Spire: The City Must Fall RPG
A fantasy-punk RPG about rebellion, brutality and oppression. What are you prepared to sacrifice to get what you deserve?
You are a dark elf. Your home, the towering city of Spire, was occupied by the high elves two hundred years ago.
Now, you have joined a secret organisation known as the Ministry, a paramilitary cult with a single aim – to overthrow the cruel high elves and restore the drow as the rightful rulers of the city.
What – or who – will you sacrifice to achieve your aims? Will you evade the attention of the authorities, or end up shot in the street like so many before you?
What’s in the book?
The revised, 5th anniversary edition of Spire is a 252-page book which contains:
- A quick and easy D10 system that lets you tell stories of brutal rebellion
- Details on the districts, factions and personalities that make up Spire – the frozen high elf kingdom of Amaranth, the lawless undercity of Red Row, the mysterious Mortician sect and the bleeding hole in reality known as the Heart
- Eleven character classes, including the vagabond Knight, the sorcerer-artist Idol and the arachnid nurse Midwife
- Multiple extra advances to sculpt your character, allowing them to learn the hidden magicks of the Ministry, fall back on their military training, or devote their existence to a mad cannibal king who lives under an abandoned warehouse
- A gamesmastery chapter, written with an eye to help you craft conspiracies and power structures that your players can topple, subvert or be consumed by
- Over fifty illustrations by the tremendously talented Adrian Stone
- The full contents of the previously-separate Black Magic sourcebook, including full and inadvisable rules for demonology
- The adventure Blood & Dust, also available separately
- Beautifully redesigned by ENnie award-winning layout artist Mina McJanda
You can purchase Spire as a downloadable PDF, or in standard hardback edition.
