The Marvelous City: A Guide to 1930s Rio for Ubiquity
A Cidade Maravilhosa!
Rio de Janeiro - "The Marvelous City". A tropical get-away from the rest of the world. A place of music and dance¸ jungled mountains and pristine white beaches. A place where Catholicism mixes uneasily with African animism and magic¸ where slickly-dressed con artists roam the streets and capoeira gangs fights for their turf.
The Marvelous City is a 90 page guide to a pulp action 1930s Rio for the Ubiquity role playing system. It includes an overview of the city and its culture¸ as well as new rules for capoeira and for "macumba"¸ and an adventure set in Rio.
