Hellion City Heists

Selected Option:

Before you lies a metropolis filled with crime and corruption. The city stretches 100 miles in any direction and sits in a wasteland twice as wide. Art Deco skyscrapers and Bauhaus factories penetrate the horizon like metal teeth trying to devour the sky. It is a city of concrete, steel, smoke, and grease - sweltering in the summer, freezing in the winter, and without remorse in the seasons between. Some say that when the rebel angels fell from heaven, this is where they punched through into hell. I ain't much of a religious man, but it is as good an origin story as any. Welcome to Hellion City!


The city stretches before you, 100 miles in any direction.


Hellion City Heists is a self-contained TTRPG that focuses on heists and applies a streamlined, contested-die-roll rule system to compare a character’s skill versus the difficulty of the task at hand. The game is designed for one Game Director and three to six players. Players play as characters that work as a team to complete a heist. The Game Director manages each scene and keeps the story going while everyone involved takes part in crafting an improvised and action-packed heist story reminiscent of the pulp crime fiction of yesteryears.

The setting of Hellion City is hardboiled detective noir with a dash of diesel-punk style. It is a fictional city that resembles 1930s-1940s American culture and technology with a few retro-futuristic additions and some gothic occult undertones. Influence is derived heavily from pulp genre fiction, cinema and comic books, some of which are listed below:

  • Black Mask – Fiction
  • The Shadow – Fiction
  • The Green Hornet – Comic Book and TV
  • Sin City – Comic Book and Movie
  • Dick Tracy – Comic Book and Movie
  • Metropolis – Movie

*Errata: If you have a previous version of this game, please note that this file has been updated. On page 4, under the Expert Skills listed for The Brain, it should state that this character starts with the Contacts skill. In previous versions it incorrectly stated that they started with the Instruct skill, which is not a skill in the game.

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.
