“You want to know how it starts? The same thrice-damned way it always starts. Somebody wants something. Bad. Bad enough to shell out clams, bullets, or blood. Maybe all three.”

This page contains links to all of Blood & Bourbon’s posted adventure logs. As the game is played through play-by-post, its logs read more like chapters in a book series than recaps of game sessions. Newcomers to the site often want to know: where should they start reading?

The GM usually recommends: with whatever PC looks most interesting. Every PC’s adventures can be understood and enjoyed on their own. The GM does recommend reading each PC’s stories in sequential order: e.g., Celia I, then Celia II, then Celia III, etc. If someone reads Celia IV and then Celia I, there will be plot points that may not make sense, and dramatic payoffs that will have less impact without prior stories’ buildup.

Most PCs’ stories are influenced by events that occur in other PCs’ stories. Actions in one PC’s story may have consequences that unfold in another PC’s story. Mysteries teased in one PC’s story may be answered in another PC’s story. Characters and events that seem unimportant in one PC’s story may play pivotal roles in another PC’s story. Many situations will be depicted through different points of view. Depending on the order someone reads through the stories of the game’s PCs, they may develop very different perspectives on the chronicle’s events. As one player described the game:

What I love about some of [my PC’s earlier logs] is that the more she learns, the more questions she has. Her big setting reveal doesn’t answer questions for it—it creates a fuck ton more questions. “Wait, but if blank did blank, why would he do blank? And why was blank involved? Was it because of his blank blank? Or did someone else do blank? And how does blank figure in? And why would they do blank afterwards? I guess it could make sense if blank, but then what about blank?”

And [one of my PC’s big reveals] created those questions without cheaply denying facts. The sort of writing that many professional writers seem grossly incapable of.

[The chronicle’s] best character dramas, IMO, are those that show you that character while also making clear how they’re a small piece of a huge picture. The background isn’t just the background of a portrait […], it’s the majority of the painting, and the entire painting is grand and large enough that anywhere you look you find another portrait. And that’s what Blood & Bourbon is, at its best.

To the new reader, welcome. The story of an almost decade-long RPG campaign awaits below. Everyone involved in the game hopes you have as much fun reading these stories as we did writing them.

I The Wish’s Price 17 594 p July 17, 1997 Apr. 2, 2009
Pic.jpg Celia wished for a pony. Now her father beats her, belittles her, and controls every aspect of her life. She’s just as resigned to it as her mother… until she meets a boy who wants to help them escape. He’s kind, brave, and everything she could wish for.

But Celia knows how wishes turn out. Against her father and his friend in the shadows, love and courage may not be enough. Saving her family may take another wish… with an equally terrible price.

She lies to him and for him, to maintain a place by his side. And, of course, she lies to her family that she’s human. Celia lies every night.

How long can she keep the house of cards from collapsing?

If she wants to retain her grandsire’s favor, she’ll have to hurt the only Kindred to show her true decency and kindness.

Will she choose love or power?

Pic.jpg To the world, Louis Fontaine is a washed-up old drunk. Maybe he is. But the world-weary private eye is more than that, too. He’s also a vampire hunter and independent ghoul, centuries old, with secrets that many would do worse than kill for, and a conscience that will never let him rest.

When two long-vanished murderers resurface and girls in the Ninth Ward start turning up dead, Lou may be the only man who can stop them—or cares enough to.

But when an abandoned fledgling approaches Lou for help tracking down her sire, Lou may be the one in trouble next. The case smells rotten from the outset. Unfortunately, he’s never been one to turn down a lady in trouble… even if she’s already dead.

Even Lou, though, isn’t prepared for the atomic bomb secret that lies at the heart of this case. It could explode the entire city… if he can survive long enough to use it.

Tall Tales & Might-Have-Beens

The following logs are not canon. They weren’t played out and are speculative fiction written by the game’s players. Nevertheless, truth may be found in lies, and lies may be found in truth: the “real” logs have misinformation and falsehoods aplenty, while the below logs may contain valid insights into characters’ true selves.

At the end of the night, vampires are a race of liars. Find your version of the truth wherever you can.
