A roleplaying game of angry decisions, ugly ethics, and black city streets. A game of film noir.

A Dirty World rethinks the One Roll Engine to focus relentlessly on character. Hard-boiled private eyes, dirty cops and femmes fatale make their hard choices and hide their grubby secrets.

Unified Conflict Mechanic

Key story elements and in-game conflict elements like:

  • Gunfights
  • Duels of Deceit
  • Emotional Blackmail

...all work the same and fuse seamlessly.

Swift Justice Character Development

Instead of tracking and spending points, your character's abilities improve in direct reaction to the game's events.

One-Roll Mysteries

This mechanic spits out intricate plots with one throw of the dice.


In A Dirty World, rules don't merely support drama, they are drama. Only meaningful choices push your character forward.
