About the Adventure

Capers continue in the fractured city of High Hill for your crew of Scoundrels as you build your reputation and influence in the criminal underworld. Navigate the oily waters of the Low River and the seedy districts of a city whose glorious facade is starting to crack and crumble. Compete with rival gangs, powerful noble families, vengeful ghosts, and the siren song of your own vices and trauma. Danger is around every dark corner as you build an empire with nothing but wits and luck. Do you have what it takes rise to power ? What are you willing to do to get to the top?

Blades in the Dark is a player focused game that encourages creative storytelling to explore the action and cutthroat consequences of growing a criminal enterprise. It is a great option for players brand new to tabletop roleplaying games and for those that love the cinematic action of a heist movie. This campaign is a story already in progress, so you will be joining an existing Smuggler Crew with a reputation of being Merciless. No experience is necessary to join, the game is beginner friendly as well as being designed for drop in/drop out type of play. The criminal lifestyle is inherently stressful and traumatic, sometimes deadly. Expect that characters will come and go more frequently than other roleplaying games, perhaps returning changed from their experiences or maybe dying in a gutter with a knife in their back or a toxic substance running through their veins.

What I Provide:

Upon sign up, please send me a message using the “Contact” button or through the RPG Club Discord so I can get you access to the Blades in the Dark resources folder with the Rules, Character Sheets, Crew Sheets, and Recaps, as well as your Crew’s criminal contacts and offered Scores. If you are new to the game, please message me for assistance in creating your first character and a quick overview of the rules before the session so we can jump right into the action.

What You Need: 

A webcam, a mic, and a way to roll at least 1 six-sided die (a d6, the most common die type found in most board games)

Content, Behavior, and Boundaries:

This game includes a spectrum of criminal behavior, including violence, addiction, and trauma. It is assumed that all scoundrels are morally grey and that they will commit a number of crimes in service of completing their objectives, but we will explicitly avoid anything sexually or gratuitous violence. Both are crass and while you are scoundrels, you still have reputations to uphold.

Please feel free to reach out to me with the “Contact” icon above so I can answer any questions you may have.

Fantastic worldbuilding session

May 7, 2024

I played a worldbuilding game with Jeremy, and it was fantastic. I was completely new to the game, and new to worldbuilding games in general. Jeremy lead the session expertly, giving enough detail and direction to get us started while allowing us players to brainstorm and be creative with our build. He was kind and patient, and he knew just when to step in if we needed help. He has a great sense of humor, there was a lot of laughter as we played. I’m looking forward to the next chance I’ll have to play one of his games again. Thanks Jeremy!


Highlight of my week, playing a scoundrel.

Jeremy is a great DM, and I look forward to every game with him. He engages the player and seems to be a genuine fan of the PCs, even as they smash headlong through a score like bulls in a china shop!

A fearless GM

February 11, 2024

Jeremy knows how to build worlds, tell stories, and engage players. He is especially good at meeting players where they are at. If you want silliness, he’s your guy. If you want serious, high-stakes drama, he’s your guy. If you want long-term character growth, he’s your guy. Any type of game and any type of story, you won’t regret having Jeremy guide you through it.

Total pro -- smooth, seemless and exciting gameplay

February 2, 2024

Jeremy does a great job with Blades in the Dark! He has clearly planned ahead, has a brilliant mind for imagining scenarios that are appropriate to the roll of the dice, and makes each session fun for players.

I love Thursdays night Blades, and playing with Jeremy is a highlight!

"World-building" is too dry of a term, this deserves more... Epic Lore??

December 21, 2023

It’s hard to put into words how mesmerizing and inspiring this game session was. With zero “action” built into the game rules, we had so much happen in the world of the people we channeled as we told our interwoven, collaborative story. And this was such a success because of this DM’s hard work of supporting players’ imaginations (and lending his in a pinch), record-keeping, making sure that group dynamics worked well… I could honestly appreciate how intense it must have been to run such a storytelling-heavy game, yet as a player it felt effortless for me to be creative, and just to HAVE FUN
