Bedford and Lamrose. Two sides of the same river. Two sides of the same coin. One, an affluent metropolis teeming with industry and aspiration. The other, a cesspool of crime and vice. Both dirty, both begging for the match that will set this whole city on fire.
Bedford and Lamrose. Locals call this place Bedlam. It’s a fitting name.
The latest game line from critically-acclaimed writer and game designer Jason L Blair has been announced: Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption.
Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption is equal parts neo-noir, pulp detective fiction, and a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence thrown into a cement mixer and poured on top a heap of nameless bodies no one will ever miss.
It’s a modern urban setting full of despicable people doing awful things in the name of God, money, politics, or to pay off old debts. The stories shine light on the dark places of the human heart but it’s about finding diamonds in the rough, about good people in bad situations. The heroes may have questionable means but they have good intentions.
Of course, you know what they say about good intentions.
The game is set to launch in April 2012. You can secure copies of the game, guarantee a lot of great artwork for the book, and even help direct the flow of supplements.
