Forge alliances and ruin your enemies; expand your criminal organization; and discover your characters through their passions, failures, and triumphs. We will follow the tale of our player-made crew, see the underdogs climb, and find out what they are willing to sacrifice for their reputation. Will they seize the top mansions of Charterhall or succumb to the haunting underground? When an assassination target proves innocent, will you relent or remain professional? What will you do once the power is yours? Will you help others or do what's necessary to hold on to it? Let's play and find out! Background art by

Gameplay details

Session 0 will happen in the form of 1-to-1 calls with me before the session to bring you up to speed. If you need to step away from the session for any reason, you're welcome to do so and will not be punished. We shall establish the theme and the Lines and Veils document so everyone is comfortable. A 10-minute break roughly in the middle will serve for drinks, snacks, and bio, as well as to help with the pacing and bleed. I will be checking in with you throughout the campaign. Blade's system is a master of heists and subterfuge. With a flashback mechanic, you are planning š˜„š˜¶š˜³š˜Ŗš˜Æš˜Ø score, once you are in the motion and trouble. This way, you are spending more time somersaulting while shooting, rather than talking about every possible situation. š€ššššššš§š š€š‚š“šˆšŽš!
