Blade & Crown: Getting Started

Illustration of an open doorwaySince so many people now have Blade & Crown thanks to the Bundle of Holding, I thought I’d do a quick guide to getting started with it. Where to begin?

  • The example of play and How to Play: The Basics sections should help you get a good grasp of how the rules work.
  • The rest of the book is organized to be usefully read straight through, so it can’t hurt to just read all of it, if you want.
  • Download the sample characters to get a sense of how characters can vary, and a sense of what nifty characters you can make using B&C.
  • If you’re looking for a ready-made adventure using B&C, check out The Bandit Map. In it, the PCs discover a scrap of paper that leads them inexorably to an adventure through the dangerous western wilds, and eventually to conflict with a group of nefarious bandits.
  • Tenement Defense is another adventure for B&C, this time one where the PCs are all city folk defending their home against a couple marauding gold-seekers.
  • Read some of the many articles about Blade & Crown on this blog.
  • Talk about the game in the discussion thread.
  • Let me know if you have any questions I can help with.
  • Don’t be afraid to break it, change rules you don’t like, use it in ways that work for your group.
  • Have fun with it!
