Magic has returned to our world

“I think becoming a wizard is about discovering what's real and what isn't.”
—Ben Aaronovitch, Rivers of London


The Domestic: An Introductory Solo Adventure for Rivers of London: the Roleplaying Game

Spring, 2016: the Folly, also known as the Metropolitan Police Service’s “special magic branch,” has received word of repeated domestic disturbances at an address on Prince of Wales Road, London—and very odd ones, at that.

Convinced that there’s more going on than meets the eye, DCI Thomas Nightingale has assigned you, his newest recruit, to the case.

The Domestic is an introductory scenario designed for one player, based on Ben Aaronovitch’s short story of the same name. Choose to play as a magic-wielding police officer, nurse, or social worker in a game set in the world of Ben Aaronovitch’s hugely successful Rivers of London series.

Armed with this book, a pencil, and some roleplaying dice, you are ready to take on your first case for the Folly. No GM needed!

Can you solve the mystery on Prince of Wales Road?

Note: 'The Domestic' solo adventure is also included in Rivers of London: The Roleplaying Game core book, available separately.

“9/10: You don’t have to be well-versed in Rivers of London to want to pick up this roleplaying game… a ‘must own’. — The Gaming Gang.

"The whimsical and at times humorous Urban Fantasy setting of Rivers of London makes it ideal as either a first TTRPG or a transition game for players looking to expand beyond Dungeons & Dragons." — GameOnAUS.

"A fantastic gateway into tabletop role-playing games." — British Fantasy Society.

"A superb realization of a much-loved series, dripping with character while offering fast and streamlined mechanics. Another classic in the making, and deservedly so...

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.
