  1. Little Fears is from FunSizedGames. It is a little more the “monster under the bed” type of game. Which I guess is a form of urban fantasy.

    As an aside FunSizedGames also makes a game called Bedlam. Which is essentially the SinCity RPG for Savage Worlds.

  2. As a long time Dr. Who fan it was never “The” UNIT, it was just UNIT. 😉 Stood for the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (in the old days). In the new series it is the UNified Intelligence Taskforce.

  3. I really have to just make lists so I can remember my points instead of making multiple posts. Grimm (FFG) is a game based on the old bed time stories kind of like “Once Upon a Time”

    Also, as Dante’s was mentioned in the ep I have to say; That whole thing with the one way viewing through the ceiling to the floor above is kind of…well, let’s say women shouldn’t wear skirts there. I don’t know if I’m being prudish or if you guys are being pervish;)

    Again another great episode. Helped eat up half an hour in an other wise boring night.

    1. In Dante’s, rank has its privilege.

      Seriously though, the idea would be that those below could invite some cool or interesting people down without those upstairs from knowing they were being watched. That and you could size up a lower ranking rival before a throw-down.

      1. Don’t get me wrong I thought it was a great idea. I just started thinking one day about the whole…”privacy” issue. It is very Shadowrun.

        Other Urban Fantasy games you may like to look into;
        -Marchland by Hearthstone Games. You could easily do a Charmed or Dresden type game with very little tinkering. It is Savage Worlds as well.
        -Arcana Rising is an OSR game by Bedroom Wall Press.
        -All for One: Regime Diabolique by Triple Ace Games (TAG) could be considered an historical Urban Fantasy I think. The PCs are members of the King’s/Queen’s Musketeers in the 1630’s fighting corrupt nobles, spies/assassins as well as Demons, Vampires, Werewolves and other assorted filthy McNasties. in the streets of Paris.
        -Leagues of Adventure by TAG could also fit the bill like Victoriana.
