I can't recommend this game enough... " -- Read Full Review

Explore the best and bleakest aspects of film noir, presenting a concept with which to portray detectives, femmes fatale, desperate district attorneys, grifters and con artists, government agents, and reporters during the Classic Age of 1940's film noir. Mean Streets includes special rules for investigations, chases, and using connections, as well as a full-length adventure, numerous story ideas, reference sheets, and fifteen ready-to-use character templates.

Mean Streets is a roleplaying game designed to be both easy to learn and fast-paced. The versatile genreDiversion i (1.1) 2d6 rules make it perfect for one-shot games, extended play, or as a framework for your own ideas. Plus you can combine it with our Active Exploits Diceless System for diceless film noir adventure. genreDiversion i games can also be combined to expand gaming options--mix and match custom rules and features from one game with another.

In short, Mean Streets is fast, ready-to-use, and adaptable. You don't have to learn a complicated system, refer to scores of tables, or spend all day creating characters. The rules are easy to learn, consistent, and flexible. You can either create custom characters for the game or dive right in with any of the included templates. The game is designed to be light; it has a small footprint and extremely low price tag - it's not overloaded with tons of rules or an excess of information you just won't need. It's meant to get you running quickly so you can have a good time.

The game is primarily set in New York City, but any location will do. Go back to the Forties and draw on classic films for your inspiration. Chase down missing persons and investigate murders, drawing on the staples of film noir grittiness and cynicism. The included adventure and story ideas immerse you into the world of film noir, so even if you don't want to the run them, you've still got a lot of info with which to work to flavor your setting or inspire ideas.

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.
