Written by Buddy Shay, the designer and writer behind By a Thread, the collection of short stories, Brighton under Siege, is now available for sale internationally. Events in this collection take place in the same world as By a Thread and center around an invasion of Brighton by the Savage Races roughly 30 years before events in the RPG begin. You can find it on Amazon.
On August 1, 2022, Arme Blanche Games will release our first one-sheet, What’s Mine Is Mine. In this scenario, the outfit is sent into the wilds to investigate a group of miners who have been out of contact with the city. Can the heroes get to the bottom of things? Can they do so with their lives intact?
On June 24, 2022, Arme Blanche Games will release our first module for By a Thread: The Dwarf’s Demise. This pulp-mystery will take PCs to Brighton’s wealthiest citizens in their effort to solve the murder of Rolf Undermountain, the famous dirigible tycoon.
On the same day, we will also release a map pack containing tactical maps of the scenes likely to involve combat. These 12″x18″ maps are optimized for use with VTTs for gaming groups that play online.
Both will be available on DriveThruRPG.
By a Thread and the accompanying character sheet are now live! You can check it out here.
After nearly two years of development, By a Thread will be available on DrivethruRPG on Tuesday, March 15, 2022. I hope you’re as excited as I am!
In addition to creating the setting By a Thread, Arme Blanche Games is hard at work creating our first module, The Dwarf’s Demise. This scenario is designed for an outfit of 3-5 characters and comes complete with six pre-generated characters for ease of play. This module can be played in one session of roughly four hours.
In this scenario, the PCs are private investigators hired by the Brighton Police Department to solve the murder of one of the city’s elites, Rolf Undermountain, a dwarf who made a name for himself designing dirigibles. Rolf went to work on a Saturday, and his body was found that afternoon by his receptionist, Opal of the Evergreen Twelve, an elf. Who could the culprit be?
In this pulp mystery reminiscent of the radio teleplays of yore, PCs will get the chance to interact with some of the wealthiest members of Brighton society. Who would benefit the most from Rolf’s death? Will the PCs discover an even graver threat?
