A downloadable hack

A mechanical hack of the rules for recovery for the critically-acclaimed Blades in the Dark.

These rules remove the healing clock, replacing it with a table of results that will make recovering harm a more engaging process. Instead of spending several actions to watch a clock slowly tick up, you'll roll once and use your resources to improve the results.

Feel free to use these rules in any project you like, shout-outs appreciated!

Also, if you want to read about some in-depth design you can check out the essay about hacking this system and why I did it at my website archive15.com
