Blade Bind: Sword Practise


As one of the Chosen, take up your Blade and lay waste to those in your path!

Blade Bind: Sword Practise is a free playable introduction to the Blade Bind storygame. Learn the basics of card-based Duelling — the game's only resolution system.

Wielding one of the ancient supernatural Blades, only another of the Chosen can hope to stand in your way. If you want something, or want to stop someone else, you'll have to fight!


Blade Bind is a GMless one-shot storygame that uses a pack of regular playing cards to resolve epic swordfights. Become one of the Chosen, fight for your goals, and struggle to maintain control of your supernatural Blade!

After a successful Kickstarter in 2016, the full game is now available!

The card mechanic can be a little confusing at first, but the duels are fun and I like it. It gives you a taste of the game and leaves you wanting to go buy the full book. So as a preview it is spot on and I recommend people try it out. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
