Playtest rules?

Hey! I was wondering if anyone had PDFs of the old playtest versions of the game. It would be nice to see how the game grew into its current version.

I don’t have the PDFs, but John Harper ran a demonstration series when Blades was in its infancy and you can find it on his channel:
I don’t know if it’s the earliest incarnation of the rules but they switch to a more modern ruleset part-way through, and also it was great fun to watch :slight_smile:
Edit: there’s a link to the character’s sheets in the desctiption, they’re pretty different

I did a 2-part video on YouTube about the development of Blades from the first playtest to the final version.
