City of Red Waters


Welcome to Inverrouge

City of Red Waters is an alternative setting for the bestselling Blades in the Dark RPG, featuring new heritages, backgrounds, vices, crew types and more. Note: This is not a standalone product, you will need a copy of Blades in order to play.

Inverrouge is a bustling colonial metropolis burdened with a complex and unpleasant history. The land here is rich from a hundred thousand years of care and a hundred years of blood. All that is sacred, beautiful, mystical runs through the veins of its peoples, hot and red. Blood is the essence of life and soul in Inverrouge. It seeps into the soil, conjures Ghosts on the cobblestone streets, and lures demons from murky depths. In the city of red waters, colonialism makes vampires of us all.

Inverrouge sits on the mouth of the river Sange, making it a major port for the mighty Steamships that pass through. Its music, cuisine, and culture are the envy of the modern world. Situated among dark trees and still waters, the city fills itself with intoxicating local produce and drapes itself in finery from every corner of the world. The daylight hours present a facade of fashionable modesty and businesslike propriety. But at night Inverrouge erupts into a cacophony of lights and music in a dozen clashing styles.

Here in the City of Red Waters there are opportunities for decadence, ambition, and monstrosity alike for those with the cunning, wealth, or brutality to seize them.

In this 52-page supplement for Blades In The Dark you will find:

  • An overview of Inverrouge
  • Seven new Heritages
  • Seven new Backgrounds
  • A new system for Vice and Overindulgence
  • Three new Crew types
  • Details on the nine regions of Inverrouge
  • Write-ups on the eighteen factions vying for control of the city


  • City of Red Waters: 52-page supplement for Blades in the Dark.

Don't know if I've seen an Evil Hat game PoD; usually, they offset print and sell from their website

POD would be better, they don't ship outside the US.

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.
