Bloodheist is a full tabletop RPG, presented in zine format. The pitch is simple: Dracula won, and the Undying Empire he built is ruled by immortal, squabbling vampire clans. You will play as a gang of criminals, hired by a powerful vampire to steal a valuable object from a rival. Human or undead, your characters are outsiders, unaffiliated with any one Great House, hired for the jobs that can't be traced back to your employer.

The game uses a simple d6-based ruleset, where the core resolution mechanic sees players accumulate small dice pools and attempt to roll at least one six. All rolls are player-facing, leaving the GM free to concentrate on providing humour, thrills, and suspense. The system is light, flexible, and easy to teach, perfect for one-shots or quick campaigns. 

Inside the zine you will find:

  • An introduction to the Undying Empire - Bloodheist's comedic, gothic setting. 
  • Complete rules of play.
  • Character generation procedures for human and vampire Thieves.
  • Six Professions - Thief archetypes, each with their own set of unique tools and skills.
  • Twelve Rituals - the supernatural blood-magics that can aid your Thief in strange and horrible ways.
  • A full suit of Follies and Dooms - manias and curses that are inflicted on your Thief when things don't go to plan.
  • The Secrets system, which gives the Thieves secret agendas and objectives through the use of a deck of playing cards.
  • A solid serving of GM guidance, helping create memorable heists, characters, and twists for your players.
  • Random dice tables for sparking ideas - locations, valuable objects, NPCs, and more.
  • A sample heist - The Crimson Countess - in which the players embark on a daring train robbery.

Also included: a copy of Penny De Redful's Scandal Sheet. Penny De Redful is one of the Undying Empire's premier wagging tongues, and her Scandal Sheet is the most talked-about publication in vampire Society. Penny's venomous screeds are presented as an in-universe document, filled with scurrilous stories that enterprising GMs can use as the seeds for heists.

The zine is fully illustrated by Lewis Garvey, in midnight black, corpse white, and glorious, gory red.

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.
