After watching RollPlay Blades on Youtube I was in love with this new game called Blades in the Dark. I love the mechanics and how they work, I find it interesting to have a crew “character” and I really dig the Clock mechanic. It does generate a very specific feeling and BitD also has a very structured game-play with the different “phases”.
I’m pretty excited for all the FitD stuff that is happening. I was wondering, what do the veteran gamers of BitD (and other FitD games) think, is the basic rules structure of this game viable for a more vanilla fantasy game? I know Band of Blades is a fantasy FitD game, but for my tastes it is too narrowly focused. I want wider possibilities for stories and play. Do you think something like that is viable with the “motor” of BitD? Or would you tell someone like me to better look for something else?
If I want to formulate my question very provocatively : can i do DnD with FitD?
This is a bit extreme (and I’m not talking about dungeoncrawling here, imagine more of a Critical Role kind of campaign via BitD/FitD rules), it’s not exactly what I have in mind, but i do wonder from now and then if pursuing this idea is even viable/sensible.
Did you play “bog standard fantasy” with BitD/FitD? How did it go?
Any other comments and/or advice?
Thanks in advance for any advice, opinion and/or account of own experiences.
