This is not a playbook for Blades in the Dark. This is a playbook for Band of Blades.

So I wouldn't recommend using the assets in anything you're going to sell, as some of them are ripped straight from the book! That said, with some replacement of fonts and visual assets, these templates area great place to start in terms of layout.
Oh this is definitely intentional irony on my part. Basically it implies this playbook lacks common sense. The Brand kind of fits the brash-acting hot-head trope.
The double irony is that, due to it being a trapping, players can leverage their lack of common sense to gain extra effect on rolls! Hope that clears things up. Sometimes you've gotta get creative to fit all those words on the character sheet.
So this is a classic table format some folks use in games that only use d6
Basically there are 36 choices (6x6 is 36) and to determine your selection you roll 2 six-sided dice and count them as digits. One in the tens place, the other in the ones.
It actually does mean equal to or higher. If you roll two sixes and one is the dark die, dark die is the highest value! The example quoted previously is meant to clarify that, though I can understand that there might be confusion.
While I can't offer a roll20 template at the moment (it takes a LOT of time and effort to make a good roll 20 template) I hope you will enjoy the new format for my google sheets, recently updated, found in the demo section. I'm also working on a template for the Role App, if that is of interest! (https://app.playrole.com/)

Hi, Mansfield! Firstly, thank you so much for running the game! Know that I’m planning a big update shortly (before the end of the year, maybe even in the next week).
In that time I’ll be updating the google sheets and looking into making sheets for the Role App, but I don’t have much experience making sheets for Roll 20. It’s ok my horizon but likely something that will happen closer to the Kickstarter unless an enterprising fan lends me a hand. I’ll ask around and see how plausible it would be to whip something together. ✨
You’ve done a pretty good job of creating a special playbook given your supposed lack of experience with the system! I call it a “special” playbook because basic playbooks in Blades generally don’t have abilities that directly build off one another or that would apply only to that particular playbook. Remember that players from other playbooks can choose these abilities, too, by the rules and design them appropriately.
Oh and shock absorbers mentions prowl “checks” which are not a thing. Players only roll. I think I know what it is you mean but the wording seems strange when applied to Blades.
Heya! Scoundrels is not just another word for thieves, it’s also the unofficial way to reference Playbooks in Blades. So if you meet that criteria, PLEASE submit your playbooks.
I’d also note that I’m pretty lenient with the theme, generally!
Hi, Andrea. First of all, thank you for making the extra effort to come here to itch.
To explain why I have it for free on DriveThru, my reasons are several.
1. This product uses assets from the Blades in the Dark book, by John Harper, without permission. Because of that it actually makes a difference that this version is available for free on itch, with the potential for tips, versus PWYW. Unfortunately there is no equivalent on DriveThru.
2. Even forgetting that issue, sadly, very few people actually pay for small PWYW products on DriveThru.
3. There has actually been a malicious user (even several?) on DriveThru low-rating free indy products on the site for whatever reason.
Anyhow, thank you again for your patronage, and know that I receive more money, and thus can charge less, for my paid products here on itch vs on DriveThru.
I've uploaded a single and a spread version along with some minor updates to the format and text! Enjoy, and be on the lookout for The Linear Men: https://moth-lands.itch.io/cthulhu-deep-green/devlog/171830/cdg-updates-the-linear-men-coming-soon
