A downloadable playbook

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

There are many lost along the way in war but sometimes, for whatever reason, a lost soul comes back. There are many stories about these people, some of them merely tall tails and others undeniable truths.  Some folks are lucky, while others are resolute in perseverance.  A higher power may have brought them back for a reason, or they appeared in a field with no memory of either death or rebirth.  

The Returned is a home-brew playbook made for Beam Saber by Austin Ramsey which itself is based on Blades in the Dark by John Harper. The Returned play to find out what happened, where they came from and who they are going to be.

This project currently is a WIP and will be updated as I go. Any donations will go towards commissioning art for the project. Any play-testing input is welcomed and encouraged.

This playbook includes:

  • Specialized pilot and vehicle gear for the Returned
  • Eight unique special moves
  • Example beliefs, allies, and queries
  • Example starting builds
  • Example custom vehicles for The Returned
  • Player and GM tips
