Scenario W01: The Zombie Job is now available on DriveThruRPG! This scenario was designed for, and run on, LoadingReadyRun's Dice Friends streaming show, and involves the crew being hired to retrieve a heretical tome that reanimates the dead.

The Turf Wars supplement expands the campaign rules in Dusk City Outlaws, giving a structure for play over the course of a year in New Dunhaven that has the crew playing members all drawn from the same cartel, fighting over districts to add to their cartel's turf. The Digital Creator Pack is a package containing art, icons, and templates used in the creation of the Dusk City Outlaws core game, as well as a license to create and distribute supplemental materials for free. You can pick up both of these new products on DriveThruRPG right now!
You can now download, for free, PDF copies of the character sheet and crew sheet from the Dusk City Outlaws core game box set. This package includes both color and black-and-white versions of each sheet, as well as a printer-friendly version of each. They are now available on DriveThruRPG.
