    About the adventure

    | What is Bloodlines & Black Magic? Bloodlines & Black Magic takes place on an alternate Earth, very similar to the one you and I know. It has much of the same history (with only slight variations), the same level of technology, the same social and political problems, and nearly all of the population believes everything is as it should be. This world, however, is wrong. Instead, the world of Bloodlines & Black Magic divides itself into three worlds, only two of which the PCs can work in (at least initially); the Mundane World, the Secret World, and the Invisible World. As these heroes explore the Mundane and Secret Worlds, they begin to discover clues - physical and social - that lead them deeper into the dark, forgotten, and secret places of the world. Over time, and after great effort, some of these heroes discover the Invisible World. Characters able to Pierce the Veil and those who step directly into the Invisible World learn to collect psychic clues - bits of critical data stored only in this world. Season 1 - "The Trouble in Black Hills" | Episode 1 - "No Vacancy" Black Hills, Wisconsin is a magical place! Built around Lake Maliwoc, the small town has long attracted the supernatural and those who seek it; for those who know its potential, Black Hills is a very special destination. Our tale begins as the hero's vehicle breaks down outside of Black Hills, Wisconsin...

    Gameplay details

    Bloodlines & Black Magic was first published in 2016, based on the mechanics of Pathfinder 1st Edition under the brand of O7. I am a freelance author for this system and will be running the current version in final development. It is based on D&D 5e mechanics and is scheduled to release in April 2021. "No Vacancy" is your exclusive early look at the system and the first of eight episodes in the Season One of Storm Bunny Studio's Premiere Play, called "The Trouble in Black Hills".
