Out Now: New Rivers of London RPG Case Book!

Chaosium has released a new case file for the Rivers of London RPG game! GOING UNDERGROUND is an expansion/add-on for the main game, set in the world created by Ben Aaronovitch. The new scenario is written by Lynne Hardy. Here’s the story…

London, 2016: There’s been an incident on the London Underground and the specialist services of the magic branch of the police force are required — what exactly did a terrified workman see in one of the Tube’s most difficult to access “ghost” stations? And, more importantly, what are the investigators going to do about it?

The main Rivers of London RPG book is, of course, still available.

As mentioned, the RPG is set in the world created by Ben for his novels, novellas, and comics. The next book in the series is THE MASQUERADES OF SPRING, due to be published by Orion/Gollancz (UK), Subterranean Press (North America) and DTV (Germany).


The new RPG based on Ben Aaronovitch‘s Rivers of London novels is out this week! Created/written by Paul Fricker, Lynne Hardy and more, and published by Chaosium, RIVERS OF LONDON is due to be released on Wednesday (November 30th). A must for fans of the series and roleplaying games.

In Rivers of London: the Roleplaying Game, players take on the roles of newly recruited members of the London Metropolitan Police Service’s special magic branch, aka “the Folly.” You will solve mysteries, catch criminals, and come to grips with the “demi-monde”—those who have been irreversibly changed by magic.

The RPG is available first as a PDF edition. If you purchase the PDF edition directly from the publisher, that price will be deducted from the hardcover edition when it is available.

The best-selling and critically-acclaimed Rivers of London novels and novellas are published in the UK by Gollancz/Orion; in North America by JABberwocky (#1-3), DAW Books (#4 onwards), and Subterranean Press (novellas); in Germany by DTV; and widely elsewhere in translation. The latest novel is AMONGST OUR WEAPONS.
