Hi. Why this playbook is free on Drivethru? I'd put it PWYW; it could be a nice way to reward you.
PS: I usually avoid to buy thru 'cause it adds extra taxes if I declare I'm here in Europe.

Hi, Andrea. First of all, thank you for making the extra effort to come here to itch.
To explain why I have it for free on DriveThru, my reasons are several.

1. This product uses assets from the Blades in the Dark book, by John Harper, without permission. Because of that it actually makes a difference that this version is available for free on itch, with the potential for tips, versus PWYW. Unfortunately there is no equivalent on DriveThru.

2. Even forgetting that issue, sadly, very few people actually pay for small PWYW products on DriveThru.

3. There has actually been a malicious user (even several?) on DriveThru low-rating free indy products on the site for whatever reason.

Anyhow, thank you again for your patronage, and know that I receive more money, and thus can charge less, for my paid products here on itch vs on DriveThru.

Thanks for the reply. PS I saw a minor typo on the Ghost Sense: there's a phrase starting with "Is your trigger..." but it's not a interrogative one.

Also, the explanation "Note that what you perceive..." it's slightly confusing. IMHO you could simply initially state that the ability cover all your senses (calling it Ghost SenseS), and eventually in the final note stating that the player should choose a particular sense that is enhanced during the Flashback.


Great playbook, would go wonderfully with the vigilantes playbook

In the process of starting a detective noir themed blades in the dark game and this was exactly what I was looking for!


A solid playbook for Blades. It feels like it should have been in the original book.
