New Dunhaven's criminal underworld is ruled over by eight cartels, organizations of diverse backgrounds and philosophies with one similar goal: get rich by any means necessary. These cartels control the vast majority of the city's crime, and each cartel has its own turf, its own preferred illicit operations, and its own value when coming together as a crew to pull off a job.
New Dunhaven is the fantasy city that serves as the backdrop for capers, heists, and other thievery in Dusk City Outlaws. The digest-sized book that comes with the game, The Traveler's Guide to New Dunhaven, goes into detail about the city's locales, inhabitants, quirks, and dangers in detail, but we thought it might be a good idea to summarize some of the basic information about the setting here, so you can get an idea of what the city is like.
The first game from Scratchpad Publishing will be Dusk City Outlaws, a tabletop roleplaying game set in the sprawling fantasy city of New Dunhaven. Dusk City Outlaws is an out-of-the-box game, designed to be pulled off of your game shelf and played on short notice, with little prep work and time required by the players.
