Urban Shadows: Umeda Ultimatum
Sundays in September at 1 PM CDT/1700 BST
I am starting my return to the Gauntlet play schedule with a game of Urban Shadows set in Osaka Prefecture, the Kita-ku district to be precise. Come join a game of Urban Fantasy in one of the most urban environments in the world.
Something is on the horizon, rising as surely as the sun will over Japan itself. The Heart of Kansai is beating erratically, old shrines and leylines being threatened by rampant growth in the Diamond District of Umeda. Depending on what players pick for the Faction and Playbook we will custom craft the problems happening in Osaka.
We will be sticking mainly to Kita-ku in Osaka Prefecture, maybe ranging outside to other districts in Osaka but not outside of the city proper. Knowledge of Osaka or Japanese culture is not needed and characters need not be solely Japanese. Osaka is the most diverse place of Japan, with a vibrant Korea-mura, America-mura, and Ainu population along with being the second highest tourist destination of the Kansai district just behind Kyoto.
