Blades of Fortune: A Blades in the Dark One-Shot Campaign

This is a goofy idea.

I’m going to create a Blades in the Dark “campaign” with a revolving crew of players who take on the mantle of the scoundrels on a session-by-session basis.

The idea is that a lot of the strength of the BitD game is hard to explore in a single one-shot. The challenges that characters face, the effort to build something while trying to avoid ‘retirement’ is an important part of the flavor of the game, and I want to try to make sure that’s part of what we explore through these one-shots.

My plan is to pick a crew type, create one character of each type, and then run the game as a one-shot with those pregens, continuing to build on a single narrative (with different players behind the characters) as we go.

I may be the only person who ever sees the story developing. And I don’t care. It’s going to be fun. So, watch this space.
