What is SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City?

From the creators of SURVIVE THIS!! Dark Places & Demogorgons comes SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City, a gritty, street-level, superhero game set in the near future.

Vigilante City is heavily inspired by Batman: The Animated Series. Along with the X-men, Spider-man and TMNT cartoons of the 1990s.

Vigilante City utilizes the familiar ruleset of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG, mixing the old-school with modern mechanics for the best possible gaming experience. With its modular system design, you can easily play the exact style of super’s game you want!

Previously, the Kickstarter is for books 1 & 2: SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City - Core Rules & SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City – Villain's Guide.  was a great success, funding almost $13,000 with 349 backers!

SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City Book 4:  Into The Sewers takes you underground to maze of tunnels that travelunderthe Metropolitan of Victory City, into the world of subcultures, gangs, Mutants & Anthropomorphs.  Into The Sewers will feel like a new setting and greatly expands upon the already robust Mutant and Anthropomorph classes and powers.

Risks and challenges

There are of course risks, and while I believe that I have been thorough in my research of the Do's and Don’ts while running a Kickstarter. This is my 8th Kickstarter, so I still plan for surprises and hiccups along the way. This is why the promise date is in December 2019. I feel very confident that I can deliver the rewards well before then but I recognize the need for a contingency in case problems arise. I will stay transparent in my campaign and will update the backers frequently to what is happening and the current status of things.

Some potential problem areas that I will be monitoring closely are: Printing & Shipping and Stretch Goal fulfillment.
