Blightburg is a player driven game of intrigue and character drama set in a grim Renaissance era city. The dramatic intrigue is spiced with occasional action, witches and Faustian pacts with demons. The characters range from shifty lowlifes and zealous fanatics to powerful but flawed individuals involved in complex schemes. As a TV series analogy, think of it as a mash-up of Game of Thrones and Salem in the Renaissance period.
The object of Blightburg is to find out who the player characters are deep down inside. Players (referring specifically to character players) are not allowed to state beforehand what their characters are truly like, now or in the future. Instead the characters go through tense situations, make hard choices and thus reveal who they really are.
