Blade & Crown Open Thread 1: How are you using it?

Blade & Crown Open ThreadAfter some discussion last month, I realized that there’s no designated place on this blog to discuss Blade & Crown. So, with no further ado, here’s an open thread to do just that.

And here’s a discussion topic to start things off: What are you doing with Blade & Crown? Are you running games? Playing in a game? Planning something? What setting(s) are you using with it? Are you reading it? Using it for inspiration? I’d love to hear your answers!

  1. Just picked up Blade & Crown the other day at DTRPG, and have some copies coming from Lulu. I’m really enjoying the reading so far – hope to run it in some local games soon. Right now, running something in the Harn setting, or something original, seems to be where I plan to go with it.

  2. I ran Blade and Crown, The Bandit Map, yesterday morning for a table of seven. Everyone was new to B&C of course, and came to play and learn. I had all the pregens from the B&C website; only the Mercenary wasn’t used. Folks got pretty well into character, and dug into investigations such that they didn’t hit the road until nearly 2 hours in (!).

    Super fun time. I’d say they were highly successful (Bailiff! Justice! Problem solved!), and I’m sure I got a little handwavey re: magic use. It was a lot of fun though, and I do really like how Blade and Crown plays.

    • Excellent! Sounds like everyone was having fun, which is the main thing. Hopefully the investigating wasn’t too much of a distraction.

      Nice to see the Bailiff came into it. Certainly one of my favorite details in the overall scenario.

      Thanks for the comments and compliments about the game. 🙂
