This is a D20 Modern day campaign for shadow chasers. Most members are just normal every day individuals thrust into fighting against horrific creatures they never dreamed existed a short time ago while others are attached to the mysterious Department 7. I have to be out of town for two weeks. I am going to be out of town for the next two weeks. I wanted to get a game in this Saturday but it looks like we are going to have to pick back up on Sept 8th. Sorry if this causes any issues for you guys I just wanted to give you a heads up.

Regarding the COV virus and its effects: Things are frustrating, and confusing, and scary. People dream up conspiracy theories to help make sense of things. They're not helpful, though, and only serve to make the world more confusing and scarier. We're not going to have that here. And we swear to God, if anyone comes in here and starts spouting off QAnon bullshit about COVID or literally anything else, you are going to get permabanned so thoroughly that your grandchildren won't be allowed to post here.

I've been reading the descriptions between these two, and I don't see that much difference. Does anyone have a favorite? Is one inherently better than the other? Can you segueway into one with the other? Inquiring minds want to know. To be honest, I wasn't really that enthusiastic about either. For me, both seemed too derivitive of either Buffy and Angel or Shadowrun. If anything, I'd combine the two settings, and add some more depth to whatever world the Shadowkind come from. The sheer vaugeness of the Shadow setting always sorta bugged me.

Good recomendations: Check out the Book of Unremitting Horror- can't remember the publisher of the top of my head, but it's a great collection of monsters that'll really change the feel of the 'urban arcana' setting if you decide to introduce 'em. Also, I've done a whole bunch of modern magic classes for an urban arcana styled campaign, released through Skortched Urf Studio's "Dept 7 Advanced Class Update Series"- they're pretty odd but memorable classes and maybe you'll like 'em.

The difference between the two is small- it's mostly focus. Shadow Chasers is about a small band of humans usually up against horrors that stalk humanity. Most of humanity is ignorant of what hides in the dark, but this small band knows the score. One of the ideas I cooked up in my brain was merging Ravenloft with Urban Arcana- an American city is whisked away to the Ravenloft world, and the people of this city must cope with their new situation. I sort of had an image in my head of an elite police unit tasked with combating the horrors that creep the city streets at night and investigating gruesome murders and the like.

This team wouldn't be like ordinary police; they would have mages and adepts to provide punch and ability, and maybe non-human "immigrants" to help give insight to what they're up against. Halo Registered User Validated User. BPIJonathan I'll be superamalgamated!

Validated User. Lisa Nadazdy said:. DJorgensen New member Banned. All of my d20 Modern horror and occult gaming has been far more oriented toward the Shadow Chasers campaign model than the Urban Arcana model. DJorgensen said:.

TristanH Gah! I always got the vibe with Shadow Chasers, the monsters are out there, you're one of the few who can see it, and, btw, you're really overmatched, as magic items and such are few and far between, and guarded by nasties to begin with.

Odds are that thing that just killed the bum coming towards you needs something magic to damage it, and you've got a shovel and a handgun. Good luck. In Urban Arcana, magic is all over the place, the shadows have moved in, gotten jobs, and are living right along side you, only most people choose not to see them for what they really are. You can, so you interact with it. More of an M. At least, that's how I saw them.

Mostlyjoe is plotting your doom. Urban Arcana has a book out if your starved for ideas. They're essentially the same setting as they were both derived from the same in-house playtest campaign IIRC.

The metaphysics, creatures, etc. The difference is in focus: Shadow Chasers views the incursion of Shadow as an inherently hostile phenomenon that must be stopped by the PCs; Urban Arcana shifts towards a POV of the Shadow as a neutral and unavoidable phenomenon that must be negotiated in order to protect the good humans-and-others while defeating the bad humans-and-others yes, it comes off as a bit touchy-feely at times.
