Killing Streets is a supplement for Kindred of the East that explores the dark sides of the urban territories of the Cathayans, including organized crime and the seedier sides of town.

SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

With Blood in the Gutters
The Middle Kingdom's glimmering high-rises and endless slums provide a vast tapestry for the Cathayans who prey on the living. Violence, abuse and death crowd together in a sea of pain and filth, in which the Kuei-jin swim like sharks.
The Hungry Dead Play Their Games
Killing Streets explores the dark corners of Asian cities, and the places Cathayans lurk. From international crime cartels like the Yakuza to the dictators' work camps, from the glamorous clubs of Tokyo to the slums of Manila, this book provides an array of characters, resources and story seeds.
