City of Mist Free Preview - The Personal Vein

Watermarked PDF

This is a free preview of The Personal Vein, a story arc for the City of Mist RPG, compatible with the Core Books bundle which includes the Player's Guide and the MC Toolkit

This 8-page excerpt from Carnival of Machines, the second case of this story arc, offers a sneak peek into the story laid out in the The Personal Vein.


"There’s a secret kind of hate blowing through the streets these days, bitter-cold and blood-curdling. People aren’t even sure what they hate anymore, they just do: they hate each other, they hate their lives, and they hate themselves."

The Personal Vein revolves around individuals and their personal and emotional turmoil, instigated by minions and the corrupted victims of a twisted and tormented supervillain who can evoke dark emotions and instill chilling hatred in people's hearts.


The Personal Vein is the first sub-arc from Nights of Payne Town, which also contains:

  • The Mystical Vein. Three cases following a magical arms race, where a mystery collector will stop at nothing to gather every form of magical object and being in the City.
  • The Criminal Vein. Three cases involving the rise of an unstoppable crime baron, a violent self-proclaimed monarch, and the struggle for power over the City streets.

City of Mist is a comic-book film-noir RPG, where you play ordinary individuals with legendary powers and hit the streets of a haunted modern-day city in search for answers. With a simple but powerful narrative game system and unique character motivation and evolution mechanics, City of Mist will let you experience just what happens when everyday life on the streets awakens to unfathomable mythical forces from within.

Product Information
File Size:
1.2 MB
Original electronic
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.
