Night Reign - A roleplaying game of stealth, guile, violence and devilry


Night Reign is a roleplaying game of stealth, guile, violence and devilry for a GM and one or more players, set in a quasi-Edwardian metropolis perched on an inhospital peninsula beset by
toxic black rain and ruled by a corrupt cabal of Noble Houses.

You take the role of members of The Red Right Hand, a conspiracy loyal to the recently deposed royal family, using your talents in assassination, infiltration and dark sorcery to strike out at your oppressors.

Using an innovative blackjack based rules system, Night Reign brings the tension and excitement of stealth videogames to the tabletop.

This game has an intriguing, evocative setting and interesting mechanics. I have found a few things I think could be improved, however.

- Some terms are used before they're really defined or explained, which I found confusing. The main example of this is the term Incursion. It's first mentioned on pg. 8, but not explained until pg. 26.
- The last sentence on pg. 16, about fleeing, is confusing too. Do you take a condition and gain 1 flame token whether you spend a shadow token or each mark body, or do you only take a condition and gain 1 flame token if you each mark body? Because of the word "each" it seems like the intent is that the group of players all flee together, but only that single word indicates this. Maybe if English had a plural "you" that would have been clearer. I found I had to read the paragraph on fleeing several times to understand what it was getting at.
- On pg. 19, there might be an extra word or a word missing in the last sentence in the section...See more

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.
