Blades in the Dark on Roll20

Blades in the Dark


About the adventure

Your crew is a group of Shadows, aka spies, thieves, and saboteurs. You've been hired by a student at Charterhall University, who studies the strange field of necrolinguistics, to discredit their rival and ensure they don't receive a prestigious scholarship they are in competition for. How you accomplish this goal is up to you, but it must get done by whatever means necessary...

Additional Details

How to prepare

A good mic/internet connection and (free) Roll20 account are required, webcams are optional. Must have a least a basic knowledge of how Blades in the Dark works, although the Roll20 character sheets make things pretty simple and streamlined (and all rolls are handled there).

What I provide

Character/crew/faction sheets and a map of Duskvol.

How will character creation work

Creation creation is quick, and will be done at the start of the session. The crew will come predetermined though, to ensure as much time as possible is spent playing the game (and since this is a one-shot most of that info isn't crucial for the game).

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
