Fantastic fun, as always. I'm crazy about Blades, and your GMing, and every single member of the group
Here's my question: Can you give us a little analysis of how the "Everyone see Aldo as the biggest threat in the room" bit played out?
It sounded like an awesome Devil's Bargain, but I feel like it wound up not having much meat to it. He wound up pretty much just fighting the one ghost. I was kind of looking forward to seeing most everybody try to swarm him, and, well, that didn't really happen
I can see reasons in the fiction that the Swarming of the Lesson-Giver didn't pan out. But it ties into a problem I still grapple when I run Blades -- the sense that I can only move in response to player action, which makes it tougher me to bring in threats or situation twists. So, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this -- whether you feel that the Bargain had its effect, or if not, then why; and also how you'd run a "everybody swarms one guy" situation if it did happen.
Again, many many thanks Both the Blades system, and the Rollplay Blades series, are seriously brightening up my life.
