"Unusual Suspects: a Playbook Jam" is hosted by members of the Blades in the Dark discord channel!

We invite you all to join us in a month long design jam focused on creating custom Blades in the Dark playbooks.

Will you craft scoundrels hailing from Skovland, Iruvia, or the Dagger Isles?

Or will they be from parts unknown?

Show us playbooks inspired by your favorite faction or your most beloved fan-fiction!

Our theme:


Will your scoundrel bring new light to the streets of Doskvol or will they be a prince among thieves?

Our rules:

  1. Playbooks should be designed for or inspired by Blades in the Dark!
  2. Feel free to play fast and loose with the theme.
  3. Keep it PG-13 and use content warning where appropriate.
  4. If you use assets from the Blades book or mention the fiction established therein, don't charge for your submission. Allowing tipping is ok.

Examples submissions:

  • Playbooks for Blades and the Doskvol setting.
  • Playbooks that play with or twist the base setting.
  • Playbooks for other games inspired by Blades.
  • Playbooks for Blades inspired by other games.
  • Playbooks!

Oh, and this ends in October so feel free to make it SPOOKY!
