" With a familiar yet different set of rules, Crimson Blades gives you fantastic old school-style dark fantasy/sword & sorcery role-playing. You can be a brooding sorcerer with a demon blade, a savage barbarian with an equally savage panther companion, a grim tomb-robber seeking the riches of a long-dead empire or even a Dendrelyssi - one of the last members of a decadent race of necromancers looking for redemption in the lands they once ruled.
"Men shall die for this," he said coldly."
And its this sort of clear headed cold violence that runs through Crimson Blades. The abandonment of civilization stopping just short of the edge of the map is something that we see throughout the product. This is game that takes you to the edge. The edge of corruption of magick & dark forces is a heart beat away in Crimson Blades. This isn't a game about niceties, or subtleties no this is game about seeking out the darkness & stabbing through with a saber blade point. By fire & blade the lands of adventure need to be cleansed. The PC class combination of Barbarian, Fighter, Griot, Mountebank, Sorcerer, Thief and Wayfarer plus the inhuman Dendrelyssi give the game a much more grounded & yet Sword & Sorcery feel mixed with something far more.
