World of Darkness: Mafia is a supplement for the World of Darkness, which tells of the connections between organized crime and the supernatural.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- This Thing of Ours
- Like the supernatural denizens of the World of Darkness, the "men of respect" are damned in their own unique way. Beholden to tradition, threatened by ethics, and forced by their nature to remain outside the society that sustains him, the modern mobster is every bit as compelling a character as the most monstrous creature of the night.
A runaway gets entangled with the Mafia and with the supernatural.
