Unofficial Blades in the Dark Score Collection #1: The Hour of Chains

Suggested Price $5.00

The Hour of Chains is upon you and it's time to go to work, Scoundrel. The Dusk's full of opportunities if you know what you're looking for.

This collection of one-page scores for Blades in the Dark offers ten ready-to-run scenarios with patrons, paydays, and problems aplenty. Suggested clocks are included, so all you need to run an explosive heist, a thrilling chase, or a tense exploration of the haunted streets of Doskvol is about ten minutes, some d6's, and a crew of scoundrels hungry for the next score.

This PDF includes:

  • The Hour of Chains: Flee the wrath of the gangs of Crow's Foot and the bounty placed on your head for a crime you didn't commit, all through the rocking hulls of Tangletown.
  • Bad Dream HouseEnter a suspiciously well-preserved manor in the Lost District, ducking ageless haunts and the malicious will of the house itself in search of untold riches.
  • Panic! at Brisco's Noodle Palace What should've been a harmless late-night bite rapidly spirals out of control when old magic and vicious gangs get involved.
  • A House of Cards: Shuffle up and deal with a high-stakes game in a hidden casino, where you'll be lucky to leave with your life.
  • Gondolier in 60 Seconds: Live your life one quarter-mile of canal at a time as you flee your latest heist in a stolen gondola with trouble just behind you.
  • Every Man Jack: Track the Dusk's most notorious art critic/serial killer as he strikes again from beyond the grave. 
  • Little Rat Bastard: Match wits with the most terrifying ten-year-old that Doskvol has ever known in pursuit of a juicy payday. Mind the toy-soldiers.
  • The Queen of Bones: Plunder and ancient temple that mysteriously arose from the Deathlands, but beware of ancient guardians and centuries-old deathtraps.
  • What the Dog Dragged In: A local stray brought you a present for your past kindness. But this is Doskvol, so of course it leads to a tangled web of intrigue, lies, murder, and ghosts.
  • Hell on Rails: Catch the electro-rail and pilfer a priceless treasure from a haunted bullet train while dodging Rail Jacks, ghosts, and a hungry Deathlands predator.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
