(as of Dec 05,2022 21:26:49 UTC – Details)
BLACKBIRDS is a dark and gritty tabletop RPG set in a low fantasy world where a sinister cabal of Oligarchs have stolen godhood. Every battle is a matter of life or death in this condemned realm steeped in haunting folklore, where the edges of reality blur and fragment as those touched by the death of the Gods seek to find their Fate.
Conjured into being from the imaginations of top industry writers and 60+ contributing artists, BLACKBIRDS is a journey into darkness where your choices will become the flickering candle fire of hope…
The Gods Are Dead
The Oligarchs warred against the Gods until reality itself was shaken with the death of The Norns, those who once ruled over the destiny of Gods and mortals alike. Now transformed into beings nearly beyond comprehension, The Oligarchs’ all-too-human appetites corrupt the fabric of existence and invite influence from those outside reality…
Being a Blackbird
With death as a constant companion, players will embody Blackbirds—those tethered to the frayed threads of Fate. Using skill-based d100 mechanics built off the ENNIE award-winning ZWEIHÄNDER RPGgame engine, BLACKBIRDS players will meet the challenges of their Fateweaver (GM) and seek their destiny in a broken world.
A Waking Nightmare
Threats beyond the blades of men and claws of beasts exist in this doomed world, pouring from between fissures in space and time from realms once firmly locked away to challenge Blackbirds with previously unimaginable horrors.
Humanity Is Not Alone
Humans are not alone in the diverse and expansive continent of Erebos; others touched by the echoes of The Oligarchs victory now walk the planes of reality in search of their own destinies, some even as Blackbirds.
