Excellent take on Blades in the Dark

Rhi and the cast do an excellent take on the Blades in the Dark system. What really shines through is the idea of the crew as found family. Beautiful.

Terrific Podcast

Terrific podcast. Clever characters and brilliant pacing by the GM. Well balanced between fun and engaging heists with a larger overall worldbuilding approach.

Hey, this podcast is good.

Started listening just to help get a feel for the system once I committed to running it for some one shots. It was quite helpful to that end, but then we decided to commit to a year long Pathfinder game. And I kept listening. The characters and story were more than compelling enough to keep me coming back. And when I inevitably get called back to one shot duty, I’ll have some ideas.
