Blades Against Darkness

Author: Dylan Green



Status: Alpha

Blades Against Darkness applies the mechanics and structure of Blades in the Dark to the oldest and most familiar roleplaying game tropes and narrative: looting ancient tombs and slaying monsters.

The game is about an upstart crew of professional “Adventure Archeologists” and their rise to fame and fortune on the frontier of an ancient land littered with the wonders of a bygone era. There are desperate scrabbles against strange beasts, tense negotiations with “fellow” tomb robbers, rediscovered mysteries from the forgotten past, alien and wonderful landscapes, and heaps of coin.

We’ll play to find if your band of freebooters can survive against the threats of rival adventurers, savage monsters, fiendish traps, and the siren song of their own vices.
