Urban Armies


Episode 23 – Urban Fantasy & Unknown Armies
(a.k.a. Urban Armies)

Urban fantasy seems like a big old piece of the genre, so we dig around in it a bit before taking an in depth look at our favourite example; Unknown Armies. With a 3rd edition on its way, we can look back fondly on the days before ubiquitous WiFi and iPhones, when the occult underground was a dangerous yet alluring playground for RPGers. There may be six ways to avoid a fight, but zero ways to avoid your enjoyment of this cast from your genial hosts, Baz and Gaz.

    I am a huge fan of Unknown Armies, and I was very happy to hear this episode and hear fans talking about the game! It’s an outstandingly inspirational game and setting, and was breakthrough for its time in a lot of ways. You’re spot on, though, about some of it being a little dated, so I’m very eager to see how the new edition is going to turn out. I’m quite excited about what little I know about it so far. But I can’t agree more that it’s one of those games that you can just read without even playing and still be nicely satisfied.
