Thanks! I'm not familiar with foundry vtt. This is based on IP I do not own, it's a fan work, so someone else can, so long as you don't charge money for it.

Sam's Doskvol Breathes supplement, as well as this essay, showcase how Blades and other Forged in the Dark systems have so much to gain by slowing down and wading in the feelings and characters of the worlds they make. Bravo.
Thanks for the feedback! It is difficult to get multiple reprimands but not impossible. If players leave paperwork hanging about and don't pursue the appropriate downtime actions, all it would take is a few bad die rolls and one bad mission to start racking up paperwork and therefore reprimands (which is also contingent on the preferences of the players, which consequences are dished out, what the genre is, etc). We also didn't want player characters to become unexpectedly unplayable due to office politics. Getting a 4th power is a much showier, dramatic exit from the game. But the threat of reprimands means there are consequences, no matter how rare they may seem.
Also being removed from the Bureau could just be a plot development that makes sense in the story of your game, or the result of a complication during an action roll.
Instead of the kind of the uncritical hero worship many war games fall into, High Speed Low Drag feels like an honest and well-intentioned deep dive into the life of a modern soldier. Complete with all it's trials and tribulations.
A simple solo experience that let's you effortlessly create a galaxy of space pirates, ruthless empires, and a spaceship that ties it all together. I wish I had played this before my first Scum & Villainy game, and I certainly will in the future.
I could finally make use of my Philosophy/Religious studies double major and make a game about evolving ideas or religious doctrine. Fictional religions made up of ideas or truisms that evolve and change over time as they schism, become popular, have figures or ideas forgotten or used in popular culture until they have almost completely shed their original meaning. That could be fun.
Hey! Sorry this took so long to get to! Knights can be reset with any reset card. You can add the major arcana all at once or gradually through the campaign mode. The rules in Matrix Overload: Cybermancy and the Campaign Guide take you through what to add and when.
Glad you're enjoying it!
When you have to play a card as ICE you place it on the royal with the closest value. In your example it would go on the King first, since 13 is closer to 3 than 16. Basically the lowest total value royal (including any ICE) gets the card. If there's a tie you can pick where it goes as ICE.
I haven't messed with boardgamegeek yet. I only just got used to DriveThruRPG but I'll definitely take a look, thanks!
A cleverly written and beautifully crafted artifact, and a welcome supplement to any genre of tabletop RPG. This could serve as inspiration for fantastical dungeons, post-apocalyptic ruins, or modern conspiracies. A pleasure to read and a perfect soundtrack as well. What's not to love?
My first (and probably only) choice of publisher turned me down, so I'm likely going to need to Kickstart my own print run. No plans to do that in the immediate future, but definitely one day!
A fantastic addition to any Blades in the Dark campaign. If, like me, you find yourself enjoying the little character moments and role-play opportunities afforded by the downtime phase, you owe it to yourself to check this out.
Incredible. Just when I thought I had seen everything from the single-player RPG genre, here comes a gorgeous game with novel mechanics that helps you tell unique vampire stories. I've watched as my vampire turned into a mole-like monster and burrowed for centuries beneath the dirt. I've had ancient Greek vampires forget everyone they knew and then be trapped forever.
The book itself is an artifact I will treasure forever.
CrashCart is an incredible evolution of the Forged in the Dark system. Your quickly dwindling stack of cards adds even more tension to the pressure cooker of trying to save people, avoiding predatory corporate powers, and keeping your damn GEV in the air for one more night.
