Aren't you sick of being desperate and destitute? Don't you just want to be bad for bad's sake? To misbehave and get away with it? To descend into the muck and elevate those lucky enough to share your presence? THE PRINCE is all that and more: an elegant, awful rogue who doesn't have to be here, but is. Every arrow in your quiver is an opportunity to make being bad be fun. It meshes so so well with what Blades aspires to, and it's a delight to play (and to witness!)
A downloadable playbook
Riches to rags! Princes to paupers! Whether your character studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College or was merely fed by a silver spoon, The Prince is a playbook for Blades in the Dark about being a scoundrel by choice, rather than necessity. Touchstones include Marius Pontmercy, Common People, Percy Blakeney from The Scarlet Pimpernel, Iron-Blooded Orphan's Kudelia Bernstein, and failing children from any number of noble houses in space. Your reasons for choosing this life are your own, but unlike everyone else caught in Doskvol's underworld, you can always walk away.
The Prince was designed for the Unusual Suspects Jam in September 2020.
Included are a character sheet and playbook ready to use!
