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!

Additional Details

How to prepare

The game will be run over a Discord server with the help of DnDBeyond and Foundry VTT. A computer with a microphone and a headset is needed. Webcam is optional. Dice can be done either digitally or using your own physical dice. ā€¢ Take a look at the Blades in the Dark Player Kit and think of your favorite crime story.(https://bladesinthedark.com/sites/default/files/blades_playerkit_v8_2.pdf).

What I provide

I have everything ready on Foundry VTT. See you in Doskvol!

Gameplay details

During session 0, we shall establish the theme and the Lines and Veils document so everyone is comfortable. At any point during the game, you can interrupt me if things get uncomfortable or message me a yellow or red card. A 10-minute break 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 action and trouble. This way, you are spending more time somersaulting while shooting, rather than talking about every possible situation. The pace is succinct, similar to your favorite heist and criminal shows, where every scene paints the tale: your character's backstory, drama, tension, difficult decisions, bonding, or experiencing Doskvol. Ā  This is a campaign of rotating characters, where your crew is the most important thing. Reach the maximum with your scoundrel, retire, and then bring a fresh thief into the roster.Ā  Friendly warning: only a few get to live to old age. So what's your tale gonna be?
