Nitrate City • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price $4.00
JimmyMoon_colors_2-150dpi.pngNitrate City is a place where elements of Film Noir and classic movie monsters combine with explosive results. It’s a place populated by slick vampire private eyes, clever werewolf gamblers, cigarette smoking mummy fatales and deadly hit men from beneath the darkest waters.

You might be a member of ‘The Night Squad,’ a unique off-the-books crime-fighting task force, or perhaps you work best on your own. Regardless of your allegiance, your work will be opposed at every move by a secret society of criminals called ‘The Consortium,’ led by notorious criminal Victor Stitch, aka Frankenstein’s Mobster.  

Walk the mean streets of this action-packed, celluloid landscape in this Fate World of Adventure by Doselle Young and Bill White.

Nitrate City requires Fate Core or Fate Accelerated to play. This 51-page supplement includes:
  • A random character concept system that blends classic movie monsters and noir archetypes
  • A cinematic take on Fate Accelerated character approaches: Action, Comedy, Drama, and Horror
  • Celluloid inspired systems like the Flicker Effect to bring maximum noir to your campaigns
  • Simple rules to generate noir cases for use in Fate games
  • A complete starter adventure: The Blood Dahlia
When you walk the flickering streets of Nitrate City, always watch your back.

The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.

Any way to get a clean copy of the "Greater Nitrate City Zone" map on page 9?

Honestly, I think it's simply Los Angeles. :) The artistic rendering is all we've got.

Yup. That's totally Los Angeles and the outlying areas!

Yes, Nitrate City is Los Angeles blown apart and stitched back together by the "Flicker Effect" that tore across the city in 1948 from its "ground zero" somewhere in the heart of Old Hollywood.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
