Thanks for taking the time to review it. I can’t disagree at all with this review.
I feel the same way. The setting killed the deal for me. I got the PDF of the game, and after I read through it, I had the same thought about “Why didn’t they just put this in New York as an alternate timeline?
But then I think of the actual setting and the imagination flushes down the drain. Well, fpg enough, but my suggestion was serious: I don’t know if you’re legally allowed to do so, but if you were, I bet you’d get a lot of response from using the rules you put in here and did a New York Bloodshaows s book with it. It’s mine to do as I please.
If you want to pitch writing it, go ahead. You known, I always thought that putting in an alternate-Earth setting would have made a bit more sense. Sure it would change some thing.
Of course counter to that one of my favorite movies somewhat fun take is the movie “Cast a Deadly Spell. Probably not difficult to do but still a consideration.
But then I’d see people say that it makes no sense why would be the same with all that magic. Sure, but it takes way less suspension-of-disbelief than imagining a world that is completely different in every way from our own but somehow looks exactly like s North America.
I don’t even get the why behind the other planet. But blodshadows I wouldn’t be interested in this genre here on earth either. Can someone bloodshadow explained General Gear Cost?

There is no price anywhere? Sorry to resurrect a dead thread but I just wanted to say I think the review is slightly unfair.
The suspension of disbelief required for a fantasy world that mirrors the pulp s is not really any greater than that required for fantasy worlds that mirror medieval blooxshadows. Bloodshadows has always had this setting. Complaints about how cities generate crops etc might be worthwhile to pedants but are easily resolved by an imaginative DM. You can even make solving the mystery of how this world mirrors Earth so closely part of a campaign arc.
It seems a bit rich to create a world where the French are ruled by frogs hahaha then complain about verisimilitude in another game world. The new and improved defender of RPGs!
It’s the 20th anniversary edition of the game, originally created by Greg Farshtey and Ed Stark.
The current version was designed by Brett Bernstein, and uses the Genrediversion rules, which he designed. The book comes in softcover format as always, I’m reviewing the print edition rph, which is about pages long. The front cover is full-color, featuring a trio of pulp-style bloodshwdows a femme fatale and a couple of gumshoes, one male the other female. One of the characters is clearly using some kind of magic, and there’s shadowy figures in the background.
The interior is in black and white, and features a number of pulp-comic style art pieces, as well as some floorplans and the like.
