|Not a very subtle assassin, gotta say|
Anyway, I'm supposed to hate this sort of thing, because I've declared myself an OSR nerd and this game is wading far into the storygame side of the pool. You have players narrating flashbacks! But as I'm sure my longtime readers know, I cleave to no orthodoxy, so instead I find myself quietly intrigued. Well, not that quietly...after all, I wrote this.
Oh, what is Blades in the Dark, anyway? It's a role-playing game where the players are members of a gang of ne'er-do-wells in a Steampunk world with gritty low magic. You know, Dunwall from Dishonored. This is Dishonored: The RPG in all but name. I mean, the name of this city is Duskwall. That's the opposite of trying to hide your influences.
