Blades in the Dark on Discord, Roll20

Blades in the Dark



About the adventure

“In the haunted city of Dusvol, corruption is commonplace. No one rises without stepping on another. The rich and the nobles class care not for the suffering of those beneath them and rely on the system to keep them out of sight. Who cares about the lowly and scoundrels? Right? You are one of the scoundrels. Welcome to the Rusters kid; let's get ready for a rough night.” -Old Man Rusty. Hello everyone. Welcome to Blades in the Dark, where PCs are scoundrels trying to eke out an existence and rise up from the depths where fate dropped them. This game is set to be an introductory one-shot to the system and setting of the game. The characters and crew will be pregenerated. In this scenario your crew, the Rusters, have a simple job. Go to Jonas’ Gambling Den and send a message that he needs to pay up on the debts he owes. But something’s not quite right. Reviews are very welcome. Thank you for your interest and I will see you at the table.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Make sure you have a roll20 and discord accounts. Both are free to use. In addition I will ask for any lines or veils you may have to build a safe environment to play in.

What I provide

I will bring both a assembled Roll20 scenario , maps and character sheets as need. As well as access to my discord server which has members that have played in games I have run. Blades in the Dark uses theater of the mind for combat. Safety mechanics, such as lines and veils will be in place. These will be shared anonymously for peoples comfort.
