Bloodstone - Action-Horror mini Forged in the Dark

My first FitD, Bloodstone, is released.

It’s an action-horror game, inspired by Bloodborne. It’s a streamlined version of the original rules set, designed for one-shots.

You can find it here:

The whole game is on two folding flyers (one for the GM and one for the players).

Because the game is action-oriented, the Blades in the Dark ruleset is revised and compacted:

  • A Stamina System inspired by the souls-like games, like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, instead of the stress system.
  • Character Creation is done by answering a bunch of questions: in 1 minute you can start playing the game.
  • No Playbooks: each hunter is differentiated by their origin, their attire style, and their weapons.
  • Only three attributes: prowess, resolve, and wit.
  • Special actions to summon ghosts from other worlds and visit the Workshop, a place between the nightmare and the dream.

Of course, the day-1 patch :man_facepalming:

  • Action Roll now ends with the right sentence: “Player and GM work together narrating the action, but the latter has final say over the outcome and is the one declaring the Consequences.”
  • Hunter’s Awakening: now the Wit value for the A forbidden place memory is 2.
