greetings blades, bladettes, and bladelikes! we’re starting a ten-week run of our blades game THE CONTRABAND with Ghostlight RPGs this Friday at 8pm ET, and would absolutely love to see folks from the community there! The Ghostlight link will take you to their twitch!
As it says on the tin, we’re running a game with a bunch of my Shakespeare actor friends, which allows us to delve uniquely into the diction and grime of the world – it’s been hilarious and moving and deep so far. We’re also hoping to release the episodes on VOD on Youtube and as podcasts.
The crew are smugglers, and they expressed a lot of interest in politics so I homebrewed a huge rework of Doskvol’s politics , with a royal family called the House of Sapphires and a hybrid House of Lords/House of Common’s called the King’s Assembly (or, colloquially, the Aviary ). The crew is good friends with a group of anarchists called the People’s Explosive Party (or Shortfusers), and with a secretive middle-class organization called the Friends of Fa’er Nesse trying to bring wanted political thinkers into the City. Also the crew is developing a smuggling organization bringing quicksilver from a Railjack lab to an acting troupe called the Velvet Patchworks who also moonlight as distributors.
It’s been a delight so far and we’re stoked to begin streaming. Say hi in the chat if you stop by!
