What is Longshot City?

Longshot City is the super heroic roleplaying game where you and your team of baddy-bashing buddies kick seven shades of JUSTICE out of world ending villains, all in a lavishly illustrated 70-page hardcover. With just this book and a couple of six-sided dice you'll be able to provide years of comic-book adventures for you and your friends.

Longshot City, the place, is a dangerous town and the players are protecting it. Build your own hero team from a huge selection of Archetypes and Origins, covering almost anything you can think of! Are your a trenchcoat mage who got their powers from being sucked into a work of fiction? Or maybe you're a parasitic powersuit from outer space? And if your imagination is bigger than one book, fear not! There are simple guidelines on how to make more.

The rules are based on the classic tried and tested science-fantasy RPG, TROIKA!, so you know it's good! The PDF is finished and ready to go and all backers will receive the digital version of the game the moment the campaign ends.

What's Inside?

Longshot City has everything you need to start and stay playing for a long time:

  • 36 player character Archetypes ranging from ace reporters to superpets.
  • 36 hero Origins, such as experimental clones and one-way time travellers!
  • 24 arch-nemesis each using our innovative Motives & Methods system.
  • 3 procedural campaign structures you can follow to get running a super hero game TODAY.
  • Rules on how to patrol Longshot City and bump into trouble with barely any prep.
  • A Conspiracy Board system to keep track of your villains, their relationships,      plans, and methods.
  • Escalation rules! Set the villains plans in motion and see if the heros can foil them before they come to fruition.
  • A sectionedmap of Longshot City for you to explore
  • KO Tables! Heroes don't drop dead, they get kidnapped, have character altering flashbacks, or get an awesome grimdark relaunch.
  • Nameless Grunt creation! Every villain needs an army.
  • Inventions, vehicles and hideout creation system!
  • Game system based on the best selling science-fantasy RPG, TROIKA!, with      suggestions on how an enterprising GM might combine them.
  • Industry leading book construction. We're making a classically proportioned sewn hardback book to last.

​If, after all that, you still want more, the rules are transparent and accessible enough that anyone can get right in and make new content for their players. Just let your good ideas flow.

Launching soon!
