So, I've gotten back into GMing a lot but stuck in only one system and really want to revisit some old systems.  I've had Unhallowed Metropolis since the original release and have never gotten to play this unique game.  The Neo-Victorian dystopia setting, and the self proclaimed gas mask chic, has intrigued me since the first printing but I know it's not a popular book as I've never seen it mentioned so I'm not sure what kind of interest there might be a game.

I've never even heard of it but it sounds interesting from your description.

It's very unique, kinda like Walking Dead meets Frankenstein.  The description of the setting on the back of the book:

'It has been two hundred years since first the outbreak of the Plague, when the dead rose to feed on the flesh of the living. Countless millions perished in the chaos that followed. It was the dawn of a new dark age.

London, the capital of the Neo-Victorian Empire, is a vast, densely crowded city. Beneath the towering walls and crackling Tesla towers, where the fallout of a thousand crematoria darkens the streets, ten-million souls live in squalor. Predators, human and inhuman, stalk the slums and rookeries, preying on the unwary and the helpless.

Beneath the haunted streets, resurrection men and body snatchers hock their grisly wares at blood-stained meat markets. Their clients are degenerate ghouls and amateur anatomists who practice the outlawed science of reanimation.

Driven by an insatiable hunger for immortality, physicians search tirelessly for the elixir vitae, the fabled alchemical solution that promises life eternal and a cure for the Plague.

Above it all, the aristocracy looks down, pristine and enduring behind their walls of privilege, but preyed upon by dangers more insidious than those that infest the streets.

Even in this time of darkness there are those with the strength to fight. Undertakers, Mourners, soldiers, and scientists do battle with the horrors of the age, keeping a solemn vigil over the Unhallowed Metropolis.'

I haven't seen or heard of the game either. But that description alone has me interested.

Oooooh, one of my favorite short-lived, niche-ish games!  I would soooo be in!

It seems like we have at least a few interested which should be enough for a good game so I'll get to work on some things.

Will players need a copy of the rules?

I've never heard of it but I'd be interested if I can find the books.

Yes, the rules would be necessary.  I know Drive Thru RPG has a copy of both the main book and the only supplemental they made.  Not sure if it's available publicly as it's been a while since it's been published. The rules are not too complicated but character creation and all is too much to type up.
