Steal Away Jordan
Julia B. Ellingboe

Steal Away Jordan is a vehicle for players to tell a collective story of the lives of people who live inthe shadow of slavery. The emphasis here is on the people, not the place or time. The institution affects everyone, from the child born into bondage to the man who owns him. Steal Away Jordan is a role-playing game written in the spirit of neo slave narratives like Margaret Walker's Jubilee, Toni Morrison's Beloved, and Octavia Butler's Kindred. Like these fictional accounts of slave life, players explore the social and psychological implications of life in a society where people can be property. Ultimately, players consider slavery's long-term impact on a society and on the descendants of slaves and slave owners.

Grey Ranks
Jason Morningstar

Grey Ranks puts you in the shoes of child soldiers during the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. Together with your friends you'll work to create challenging, exciting, and poignant scenes for your characters. As the game progresses, success becomes increasingly difficult and you'll be faced with difficult choices. Is achieving a goal worth destroying the thing your character holds dear? How will reputations change over time as youngsters have adulthood thrust upon them? The emotional state of your characters is tracked as they are drawn to the opposing extremes of love and hate, enthusiasm and exhaustion. Success or failure will pull them in unexpected directions, and where these strong currents intersect lie death and heartbreak.

Dirty Secrets
Seth Ben-Ezra

Sure, your home town's a great place to live. Crime rates are low. Employment is high. Everyone is happy, successful, and filled with civic pride. I'll bet your city has spent a lot of money telling you it's true.

Don't believe it. Scratch the surface, and you will find the truth. That businessman's cheating on his wife. That politician's snorting cocaine. That cop's taking bribes to look the other way. No one is clean. Everyone has a secret, and most will do anything to keep their secrets safe. Even murder.

But secrets have a way of getting out, and bodies don't stay buried forever.

Dirty Secrets is a game of detective noir for one player and many GMs. In this game, the players create stories of corruption, betrayal, deception, and murder, all set in their own home town. Together, they guide a single investigator through a complex web of lies and secrets as he pursues that most elusive prey: the truth.

Fae Noir
Justin Bow

The Great War is over, but its scars have yet to heal.

Will you play a pistol-packing elf or magic-slinging private eye? Fast-driving bootlegger or tango-dancing troll?

It is the Roaring 20's and everyone wants to forget the horrors of a war that spanned continents and dimensions. But the changes it wrought are not so easily dismissed. Humanity struggles to understand a world of re-awakened magic and folklore come to life. The fae, failed invaders from the lands of faery, find themselves adrift in the unfamiliar modern world, living relics of the past. It is an era of jazz and exploration, of art deco and danger; a time when the fists and courage of individuals can determine the course of history.

Fae Noir is a role-playing game set in the chaotic, pivotal decade of an alternate world where creatures of mythology returned from self-imposed exile at the height of World War I. This, the core book, contains everything gamemasters and players need to run adventures in the gritty world of Fae Noir, including an all new game engine and one of the most flexible character creation systems anywhere. Fae Noir -- make the 20's roar louder!
