Dagger & Shadow RPG playtest now available

Dagger & Shadow is my upcoming game of thieves, swordplay, sorcery and dark alleys. I’ve started playtesting the “alpha” version. It includes the core rules for characters and game play.

Meanwhile, I’m also working on the rules for running your own guilds and gangs. This section will kick the game up a notch with game play for factions. It lets your group run their own guild and expand their influence and actions across the city.

If you’re interested in the alpha version for review or playtest, here’s the link:

Once the other section and game master advice is complete, I’ll issue a beta playtest. With enough feedback and a full game, I’ll get ready for publishing my first game in since 44. Very excited!

Dust Devils music

I stumbled on some great music for Dust Devils inspiration. It’s a band called The Builders & The Butchers. Their album Western Medicine is great!

Also reminds me of the EP The Last Pale Light in the West by Ben Nichols. It’s directly inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridien.

And, there’s always this atmospheric instrumental by Earth called Hex: Or Printing In the Infernal Method. I listened to that one while writing the “revenged” edition of Dust Devils.
