Weird Detective Mystery Adventures has been out of print for more than a decade now, so I have absolutely nothing to sell you at this point. (The previous three editions did sell out, however. I did have galleys to go to print, which were lost in a flood. I think I will be a stoic here and leave it at that.) The game itself has been rewritten and all of the material in Union City is new. This is not an Open Source system. All copyrights are reserved. Speaking of which, this site and all files within are copyright 2007 by Mark Lax.

This site is intended for personal, non commercial use. It is our belief that the game is suitable for the general reading public and is not in violation of any known community standards.
