Build your distinctive criminal conspiracy fast so you can get right into the action with this Crew Generation Deck. Players collaborate to design their organization, and now they can draw a couple cards to focus their decisions. Once they know what kind of crew they want to build, they can draw cards representing builds, focusing their decisions and providing the shadowy flavors of Doskvol without needing to absorb all the context first.

Each crew type has its own mini-deck, so making a crew can be quick while also providing intriguing options. Once the crew's build is established, the relationship cards locate the crew within the city's intrigues and alliances. The crew's first upgrade angered somebody, and pleased somebody else; also, the crew's main contact brings them other allies and enemies. Drawing a couple cards can provide some built-in conflict and drama to start the scoundrels off on their adventures!

Cards include simple instructions for generating a crew, and they provide page numbers to reference the Blades in the Dark rulebook. The deck makes it easy for GMs to quickly create other crews that can serve as rivals, allies, and targets! Every crew type card also includes three possible crew names that can inspire the players, and also give the GM some ideas for rival crews.

The crew deck is designed for literal and figurative team building, a tactile focus for quick decision making and exciting game play. The spirit of Blades in the Dark is to cut through the contemplation and get into a heist, and this deck will help your game table to do just that!

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.
