A downloadable tabletop RPG
Copperhead County is a Southern noir game about organized crime and political corruption in a fictional slice of present-day Tennessee. Steal, deal, and pursue the American Dream in a place where whiskey and blood run together.
Copperhead County is Forged in the Dark, based on the beloved engine from Blades in the Dark and inspired by media like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The Wire, plus contemporary crime fiction by the likes of Daniel Woodrell, Walter Mosley, Elmore Leonard, and Attica Locke.
The current Early Access version of the game is a 60+ page PDF, extensively playtested and refined, compatible with the free Blades in the Dark SRD. You will need to reference the SRD, or have a working knowledge of the system, to play. The EA document contains full variant rules, playbooks, player and GM guidance, and a complete original setting.
Need some shit to play with it? Your EA purchase also includes three "adventure modules" ready to launch a campaign or power a one-shot.

- Action! Steal things, chase cars, brawl goons, blow stuff up.
- Drama! Explore your character's personal relationships and problems as they embark on their new career in organized crime.
- Politics! Consider the legacy and present of the South, in its dueling majesty and horror. How do you feel about mountaintop removal mining, union organizing, and television news? Will you infiltrate the political machine to entrench your power, or smash it and reject authority?
