So I picked up Houses of the blooded for $5 at Indie Press Revolution – an investment I recommend to any gamer with any respect for John Wick and/or any interest in Narrative Roleplaying.

The game book is brilliantly written, with enough world to whet your palette and enough system to encourage a vivid and active world building narrative tragedy, from Conquest to Romance and Revenge (same word, different emphasis) to Mass Murder.

I’m going to have to go back and reread it a couple times to internalize it, but at this time, I have only respect for the ultimate effect.

It is, ultimately, an indie game, in that it doesn’t partake of the mainstream advancement philosophies, but I could hope that a lot of its ideas are adopted – a great many games would be richer for it.

Why don’t you have a copy yet?
