Court of Blades rulebookTime to plan a new heist, scoundrel, with this Blades in the Dark 2 Bundle. This new sequel to our December 2020 offer features the rulebook and play aids for the Blades in the Dark tabletop fantasy roleplaying game from One Seven Design Studio, along with many recent Forged in the Dark standalone games based on the Blades System Reference Document. One of the most acclaimed and influential RPGs of the past decade, Blades fine-tunes the Apocalypse Engine system, adding rules for clocks, stress, and Devil's Bargains that ensure fast play and suspenseful choices.

For just US$14.95 you get all six rulebooks and play aids in our Blades Collection (retail value $72) as DRM-free ebooks, including the complete Blades in the Dark core rulebook (previously presented in several past offers); four Blades in the Deck print-and-cut card decks from Evil Hat Productions – Characters, Crews, Deals, and Factions & Locations; and another card deck, Heists in the Dark (Shields Up Publishing). The five card decks are new to the Bundle of Holding.

Mountain Home rulebookAnd if you pay more than the threshold price of $30.09, you'll level up and also get our entire Forged Collection with six more games and supplements worth an additional $90:

  • Court of Blades (A Couple of Drakes): Scandal, schemes, intrigues, duels, and dangerous liaisons in a fantasy-Renaissance city-state. Includes the Companion Zine and Community Zine.
  • Mountain Home (Ideagonk): A tabletop take on Dwarf Fortress.
  • A Torch in the Dark (Not Writing Games): A single-player RPG that sends you dungeon-delving to twice-kill troublesome undead Lords.
  • Diogo Nogueira's dinosaurs-in-space extravaganza Kosmosaurs.
