Bloodheist Free Edition / $0.00

Bloodheist Free Edition / $0.00: Publisher: Graculus Droog

Bloodheist is a full tabletop RPG, presented in zine format. The pitch is simple: Dracula won, and the Undying Empire he built is ruled by immortal, squabbling vampire clans. You will play as a gang of criminals, hired by a powerful vampire to steal a valuable object from a rival. Human or undead, your characters are outsiders, unaffiliated with any one Great House, hired for the jobs that can't be traced back to your employer.

The game uses a simple d6-based ruleset, where the core resolution mechanic sees players accumulate small dice pools and attempt to roll at least one six. All rolls are player-facing, leaving the GM free to concentrate on providing humour, thrills, and suspense. The system is light, flexible, and easy to teach, perfect for one-shots or quick campaigns. 

Inside the free edition of the zine you will find:

  • An introduction to the Undying Empire - Bloodheist's comedic, gothic setting. 
  • Complete rules of play.
  • Character generation procedures for human and vampire Thieves.
  • Six Professions - Thief archetypes, each with their own set of unique tools and skills.
  • Twelve Rituals - the supernatural blood-magics that can aid your Thief in strange and horrible ways.
  • A full suit of Follies - manias that are inflicted on your Thief when things don't go to plan.
  • The Secrets system, which gives the Thieves secret agendas and objectives through the use of a deck of playing cards. 
For more content, including GM guidance and a pre-written heist, The Crimson Countess, purchase the full edition of Bloodheist

The zine is fully illustrated by Lewis Garvey, in midnight black, corpse white, and glorious, gory red.
