    About the adventure

    "So scoundrel, do you think you have what it takes to take your piece of Duskvol? More importantly- can you do it and get out clean? I see that gleam in your eye- either stupidity or confidence. Either way, there's this thing I heard about. A book, well a tome really. You don't spook easily do you?" Blades in the Dark is a game about scoundrels in a haunted city engaged in heists, assassinations, deceptions and smuggling (smuggles?). All you will need is 3-4 d6 and a desire to see if you and yours have what it takes to get the job done. No experience necessary! Will your crew of SHADOWS successfully steal the Tome of the Radiant Word from the Dimmer Sisters, or will you join the other tortured ghosts in eternal servitude? Play to find out! We will create a weekly campaign from the players who try out Blades and would like to play more.

    Gameplay details

    Blades turns heists on their head. Using a flashback mechanic, the scoundrels don't plan ahead. They demonstrate their skills by planning in reverse. Spend the game time doing the score, not talking about doing it! We will be using the safety tools Lines and Veils as well as the X-Card
