Learn to Play- Blades in the Dark
Blades in the Dark on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
"You don't spook easily do you? Of course not. You're professionals." "It's not a difficult job. Simple in fact. Go steal a book. More a tome really." "From where you ask? Well, there's the rub. Have you ever heard of the Dimmer Sisters?" Blades in the Dark turns RPG planning on its head. It uses flashbacks and escalating consequences to let players engage in heists where no one knows what will happen, even though the scoundrels are in control the entire time. Until they aren't.
