Tomorrow City: Dieselpunk Roleplaying

ADD TO WISHLIST >

A dieselpunk roleplaying game of action, mystery and mad science!

Tomorrow City was one of the cities of the future, built to usher in a new age of prosperity, seizing upon scientific achievements at the dawn of the twentieth century. Then came the War. Radium-powered soldiers assembled, diesel-fuelled nightmares rolled off production lines, city fought city, and the world burned in atomic fire. We survived, barely. Tomorrow City still stands, an oil-stained beacon of hope, part-refuge, part-asylum. Beset by dangers from both within and without, a secret war now rages on its streets. Diesel-born monstrosities stalk the alleyways, air pirates strike from the wastelands, mad scientists continue their dark work, occultists manipulate the city’s strange geometry, and secret societies plot in the shadows.

Tomorrow City is a roleplaying game of dark science and dieselpunk action. Swift and simple character creation and an easy-to-learn dice pool system places the emphasis on unique personalities and the momentum of the plot. Join the Underground and fight the crime and corruption at the heart of the city. Sell your dieselpunk tech, occult knowledge, and sheer grit as troubleshooters for mysterious paymasters. Hunt down spies, saboteurs, and science-run-amok. As weary sky rangers, fringe scientists, and radium-powered veterans, you might be all that stands between a better tomorrow and no tomorrow at all.

Hi Nathan... I love your work, and you have generously comped me a couple of products in the past, so please take this as constructive criticism from a fan. I'm super excited about Tomorrow City, but I have a very tight hobby budget. A bit more material in the preview would probably earn you a lot more sales for this product.

To be specific... as someone who's familiar with the ruleset it uses, I'd like to get a sense of how well developed the setting is, the amount of art in the book that supports gameplay and character generation (what I see is gorgeous), what sort of inspiration it contains for running adventures, etc.

Hello! I'm really intrigued by your game, and I was wondering if you could consider providing more details about the rules in the description or perhaps a more comprehensive preview. The current information is a bit limited, and having a deeper understanding of the gameplay would be immensely helpful for making an informed decision about purchasing. Thank you for your time and consideration!

Hi there! We recommend checking out the behind-the-scenes articles from the author on the blog of the Osprey Games website - there's one on world-building, another on the system, and one on character creation.

As the publisher, is that something you could provide links to in the description?

What is the system like? Skill- or class-based? Single die, 2-3 dice or dice pool? Battlemat and minis, concrete distances, or abstracted theatre of the mind?

It's a narrative d6 dice pool system based off Freeform Universal. PCs are essentially a bunch of tags smashed together. These tags define what they're capable of and good at, as well as what gets added to the dice pool. No class or skill per se. Abstracted theatre of the mind combat.

You can check overviews of Neon City Overdrive, it's essentially the same system with a few nuances (though I'm waiting for my hardback to arrive to find out exactly what these are, lol)

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the overview, Gabriel. I'm glad that you compared it to Neon City Overdrive. That's a great game and its narrative system works very well. If Tomorrow City is like that, then it will be very good as well for those who like narrative games.

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.
