Bloodshadows Mean Streets
This is a book I remember buying and when it was bought. It was at the last or next to last of a small convention that had been around for years. Origins had settled for it's extended and maybe permanent stay in Columbus and that spelled the end for CapCon apparently as it has never returned. This was sold at the auction that year with one or two other pieces of Bloodshadows material. I picked it up thinking it looked interesting and I was always looking for a new game to play. It was at that convention a buddy told me about a new card game he tried and a month or two later a mutual friend introduced me to crack (and by crack I mean Magic the Gathering). Needless to say I never got around to using the Bloodshadows system or this book.
From the back of the book:
BLOODSHADOWS CAMPAIGN PACK
Take a long trip through the Wilderness or a short trip through a gate and you might end up in Albredura. You could do worse, you could do better. Albredura's a city of survivors and cynics, hard magic and cold steel. Trying to turn a profit is tough in a town where breaking even might not even mean survival.
Mean Streets is a campaign supplement for Bloodshadows, the World of Fantasy Noir. It contains details on the isolated city of Albredura as well as gamemastering tips for the Bloodshadows roleplayer.
Also included in Mean Streets is the Bloodshadows Gamemaster Screen, containing many of the necessary charts and tables included in the Bloodshadows Worldbook and Masterbook.
Mean Streets is a Campaign Supplement intended for use with the Bloodshadows game.
