engulfs the horror-filled streets of post-Nazi Berlin, while exploring the
nature of the own group and characters as well."
"The concept is a

Berlin, 1950: World War 2 has been over for five years...
...but another war carries on in the shadows.
In the divided city of Berlin, the Reserve Police Agency hunts down monsters left over from sinister experiments and twisted technology. Things from beyond our space and time, strange creatures altered by bizarre machines, the decayed corpses of undead soldiers, things that hide in the darkness.
Whats new in version 1.1
This new version of the game takes all the good stuff from the Cold City Companion and incorporates it in the main book. There's also a slightly revised system chapter, with changes to give smoother play and more advice on participating in the game.
However, if you have the original version of Cold City, have no fear! There's no need to buy the v1.1 book or PDF. The revised system chapter can be downloaded for free from the Cold City Downloads page.
