...Or I could mix things up a bit and play a 6-foot-something cowgirl with a knockout figure (and fists) as a sneaky and seductive cat burglar type. That sounds fun too.

That would be fun.  I like going against conventions.

So, someone else has found the Spider book, eh?  It's definitely in my notice.  Though we were asked to come up with an alternate character in case of trouble.  Let's see what we can do...

...and still need to learn the game properly...

Never fear!  We're all new to this.  Even those of us with some play experience, because we started on an earlier iteration of the rules.  :D

but the concepts I had in mind... either a cowgirl Cutter, big and imposing but quiet and gentle at heart (if not opposed to a good brawl, when necessary), or a femme fatale catgirl, either Lurk or Slide.

I suppose I can be the Cutter then, something like an escaped circus performer trained in the fine art of the throwing knife.

MP?  Just how many people do we have running around this crew?  I'm starting to get up to 7-8 in my head.  (Also, we may or may not need a Lurk, if we're going to be spies proper.  Is that job taken yet?)

I find it is best to start with more people as some always drop.

Ideally, I'd like no more than 5 steady players.  However!  Nothing says that there can't be more than one crew on board (so to speak).

I remind you all that in Blades, unlike most games that use the *World engine (and there are hints of it in BitD's DNA), playbooks are not unique.  Doubling up is allowed.

I know doubling up is allowed, but it's not going to do us much well if there's a crew of 5 and we have 3 of the same thing in the crew.  Well, with an exception or two.  But Spider isn't one of those ones, IMO, that you need multiple of.  Cooks in the kitchen syndrome and all that.

I can post maybe once a week.  If you need to make room I can drop if necessary.

Looks like we have the proper makings of a crew!  Guess I better get to work setting things up.

To repeat a question...anybody got a problem with this going in bondage/exotic/small games?

And finally...

I took some of the legwork out of Crew construction, but not all of it.  You still get to choose your rep (ambitious, brutal, daring, honorable,
professional, savvy, subtle, or strange), your preferred activity on your hunting grounds (burglary, espionage, robbery, or sabotage), and your favorite contact (Dowler, an explorer; Laroze, a bluecoat; Amancio, a deal broker; Fitz, a collector; Adelaide Phroaig, a noble; or Rigney, a tavern owner).

Y'all can discuss that while I ruminate on the setup.

No problems on that front, here, MP. Also, everyone, remember that we're being given Everyone Steals, so there's a free point to one of; Prowl, Finesse, or Tinker, to a maximum of 3. I need to make that adjustment too, before I forget (again).

As for Rep and Contacts... hm. Maybe Savvy or Strange, for the first. We're a hodgepodge group. As for Contact, my silver's on Fitz - collectors have reason to have all sorts of oddities, and might make fencing - or hearing about interesting hauls - a good time.

That forum is fine with me.

My votes are...

Rep: Daring
Preferred Activity: Burglary
Favorite Contact: Either Fitz, the collector of Laroze, the bluecoat

Weee for a crew!


Bondage/exotic sounds good. Silken ropes and feathers for everyone huh? :)


We've an odd selection of a crew... Mayhap a strange rep? Or a Daring?

With... burglary as a preferred activity and Fitz the collector for a favored contact?

^^ See what other ideas are shaken loose.

Ho boy. Ninja'd before I'd even posted. :D

I'm a little shakier on this than anyone else.

Maybe strange works a little better for a rep as we're all catgirls. I'm on board with Burglary and Fitz, however.

That does bring to mind some questions. :D


1) In your version of the world MP how odd/rare are the anthromorphs? Or humans for that matter.

2) In the game how annoying/frequent are ghosts and demons? Often enough I should think of swapping her to that talent to actually hurt ghosts instead of her current one?
