I bought Bloodshadows back in ’94 when it was Masterbook, and I was deep into Masterbook at that time through Bloodshadows, Shatterzone and the other games. Of all of them, Bloodshadows is my favorite, tied with Shatterzone.
What I liked about it was the fantasy-horror noir feel to it – combining the dark film noir with fantasy horror was fascinating to me. I saw Cast a Deadly Spell not long after I bought the game and was blown away.
I think I liked Bloodshadows for the same reasons I liked Dark Conspiracy and that is the way I like to play it. With the resurrection of Bloodshadows through d6, I’ve decided to start a web site to post my ideas for a campaign.
Adventures of Drake Gideon
I’ve run several Bloodshadows d6 adventures with a specific set of characters as a one-shot or convention game. The main private-dick is Drake Gideon. He’s a guy that likes things simple. Unnaturals tend to make things complicated.
