They call you the Gentleman Bandit, because no one knows your name. They call you a monster, a villain, a dealer of death. They call you Devil.

But they don’t know you.

Not your Heart, your Poet’s Heart filled with rage or filth or the expansiveness of True Lovenot your Heaving Heart, beating in meter, callous or kind or barren.

In Gentleman Bandit, you play the titular rogue ~ a highwayman of the old guard who leaves 13 lines of verse at the scenes of his misdeeds. Through card draws, writing prompts, and dice rolls, you’ll write a narrative poem about your Bandit’s loves, losses, fears, and more.
