Bleake Rebellion is a low to medium crunch narrative game. When a player's rebel tries to overcome an obstacle, the other players vote on whether they think that rebels success or failure is good for the story. To make their vote a player adds coloured beads to a bag and then the player who is roleplaying the rebel facing the challenge blindly draws some beads. The combination of beads he draws determines what happens next. It could be success or failure, and it could lead to a positive or negative outcome.
Set in a pseudo-historical 18th century European city where some of the people are turned into magic wielding miscreations by an eldritch pollution called the miasma, the faithful can bring about miracles, and places of intense suffering become cursed, Bleake Rebellion explores the darkness within the hearts of rebels as they try to overthrown the tyrannical regime that rules their city.
