As a GM who has read his fair share of ttrpg systems, BitD became my favourite once I got to properly know it and experience how fast, open, and story-focused it is. Sadly, I am struggling to put together a playgroup amongs my friends, for one reason or another, they don’t seem to like the setting, or are put off by having to understand another ruleset.
So I was hoping some of you guys might be interested in playing a game with me as the GM on Roll20 on a weekday suitable for everyone involved. I am GMT +2 but I am hoping one or two timezones won’t make a difference. I happily welcome new and experienced players alike, the only requirement I would put forward is that you are 18+, and you are able to respect your fellow players in and out of game no matter their gender, religion, political views and ethnicity.
I for myself am a 27 years old guy from Hungary and this would be my first time GMing in English, so I would ask you to be understanding and patient on that front.
For details about the game, there are two things you should know. One, the story starts with the players transitioning from Whitehollow to Doskvol on a train, after their gang in the neighbouring city got demolished. The only reason you escaped is that you got a job from a mysterious benefactor, who put you on a railcar heading out of the city. The only thing he asks of you is to steal something for him in return…
Second: Houserules! Blades is good, but one thing it does not handle well is situational modifiers. You have Hunt 3 and shooting someone with a rusty old pistol in the rain and heavy wind from the other end of the street? Same pool as if you were using your fine long rifle in clear weather from 5 steps away. You will encounter rule changes in the core mechanics and in many other places, so much so that even the character sheets will look a bit different. I am happy to receive your feedback on these, but I would ask you to be prepared that this blades is a bit more 9.0 than 8.3. My dream is that one day I will get to design the real 9.0 with John Harper, which I know is silly, but a man can hope.
If you are interested, get in touch with me here, or on discord at mostlikelykilled#2566
Have a good day everyone
