After 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!
Every time I see “A Game of Thrones” I think “Blade & Crown” is the perfect game for this setting.
Thank you. Now I just have to get everyone else to agree with you. 🙂
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.
Sounds great! Good to hear the reading is enjoyable. And let me know how it is goes if you run something with B&C!
Blade and Crown was requested at the upcoming Big Bad Con in October 2019 … so I’ll be running a game of it, using The Bandit Map.
Neato! Glad to hear it. I’d love to hear how it goes!
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. 🙂
