City of Mist Case: The Alchemist


This is a scenario for the City of Mist RPG, compatible with the Core Books bundle which includes the Player's Guide and the MC Toolkit

The Alchemist

A Heist of Alchemical Transmutations in the Mansion of a Mad Recluse 

At the edge of the Old Quarter, there’s an aged, deserted mansion where no one lives and no one goes. Rumor has it that it once belonged to an aging alchemist, one who has sought the secret of life everlasting and dabbled with the alchemy of souls.

His students and followers, remnants of his dark cult, still guard the estate to this day, hoping to retrace their master’s achievements. But even they fear to venture deep below, lest they become mere ingredients in the alchemist’s final experiment.

You have no such luxury; you must find the Alchemist’s “Great Work”, even if in the process, you become something else...

The Alchemist is a case centered on a single location that can be played as either a heist or a dungeon crawl. It describes the danger-ridden lair of Armand Kai, a master alchemist haunted by his fear of dying, who desired most of all to retreat from the noisy City and complete his Great Work: finding the means to live forever.

The entire structure of his manor is engineered as a "chemistry set" where the crew is the base material going through transformation as they move deeper and deeper, closer and closer to the ultimate reward: the Elixir of Life.

The Alchemist is a case from Nights of Payne Town, a story-arc book for City of Mist. This case is also featured in the Mystical Vein bundle, a sub-arc from Nights of Payne Town.

City of Mist is a comic-book film-noir RPG, where you play ordinary individuals with legendary powers and hit the streets of a haunted modern-day city in search for answers. With a simple but powerful narrative game system and unique character motivation and evolution mechanics, City of Mist will let you experience just what happens when everyday life on the streets awakens to unfathomable mythical forces from within.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
