Many of you will have probably given then new Amazon series Carnival Row a watch. If you've then been tempted to think about roleplaying in its world then Nerdist has done you a favour and made a free download for the Cypher System with a Carnival Row RPG Supplement.

Carnival Row RPG - Nerdist

The download contains everything you need in order to play through stories set in this world with a look at making characters, exploring the world and its different factions, and of course, the bloated City of Burge where the Fae clash with its inhabitants and all sorts of quirky tales unfold

If you're interested to see how a Carnival Row RPG might play out then the Nerdist hosted a story called The Heist On The Row which you can watch below...

This will give you a good idea of the Cypher System so you can see if this is for you. You could, of course, use this as a sourcebook for any other roleplaying game you prefer as it is a great resource for background information.

Carnival Row itself has impressed me. I really like the world-building which is way better than Bright (namely because it's better paced as a TV series rather than a movie) and even though Orlando Bloom can be a bit wooden at times I think Cara Delevingne and the rest of the cast have made this a pretty engaging story to follow. I've only seen the first three episodes but I'm very interested to see where it goes next.

We've had a lack of proper interesting Fantasy TV shows over the past few years but it looks like we're going to be well supplied in the wake of Game Of Thrones with the likes of this and The Witcher coming later this year.

Are you going to be giving this a download?
