Rules (Official)  - 
 
Are there any rules about reducing the crew's wanted level? My players misbehaved a good bit on their first few score, and are now trying to get that wanted level back down into the realm of reasonable.

There's no guaranteed mechanic for reducing wanted level, but, as Andrew and Jason say, you can always attempt anything by setting it out as a goal and working toward it.

Always interesting how good world building leads to good stories, and vice versa.

Actual Play Reports  - 
 
In the continued misadventures of the Oath Breakers the crew managed to anger the Imperial Guard on behalf of the Inspectors and ended up adopting a ghost child and helping it posses the body of a Guardsman the cutter killed.... this won't end badly at all

I invented a kind of crime they might be interested in.

"Subscribers. Aristocrats who make secret deals with orphanages and other similar institutions. They keep a spirit of a child, and cycle the child through a new vessel every few days (so it doesn’t get locked in and become a vampire.) Continue educating the ghost, focusing on mental discipline to resist the maddening effects of being pressed against the back of the mirror. Use older bodies as appropriate. When the child is “of age” then the child can choose a body and bond permanently to become a vampire."

They might check into any subscriber services in their area to see about handling this right. Otherwise they'll end up with a vampire, the body of the guardsman with the mind of a dead child... =)

I've unfortunately yet to be able to give BitD a spin, but I'll offer my experience with Roll20.  In 2013 I decided to figure out this whole R20 thing for all my gaming needs.  Here's the pitch for your perusal - ymmv.

No doubt, that its tools are an especially huge boon to games that use tactical maps.  However, even for rules-light games, the easy functionality to have graphical backdrops and/or pop-up pictures showing who the PCs are talking to or the city they're currently in remain very useful.  The idea being your game transpires against a backdrop of a picture of or actual map of Duskwall, for example.  (Players & GM have tools for pointing at or pinging certain spots.)  Without affecting that backdrop, if you wished, you could have pictures of people or specific locations pop-up in front of the players.

I don't always use background music (or sound effects), but it's nice to have the functionality right there to give me options.

R20 also has extensive capabilities for character sheets, and it's nice to have them right there in your playing space.  Most R20 character sheets have the ability to roll right from them - don't knock that til you've tried it.  It's also nice to have handouts not only in the cloud, but in your gaming space for easy player access.  Players can have thumbnails of whatever handouts they wish right in the playing space - or a thumbnail of their minimized character sheet.

Asynchronous information functionality in R20 can be handy too. Some players seeing something (pictured on a handout or NPC character sheet) that others don't is easy, as is typing messages only to certain players (and them typing only to you).

If you're a tech geek as well as a game geek, there's a lot of advanced functionality to go crazy with, if you so desire.  Also, there's some really nice tools for tactical maps that I won't detail here.  The platform currently has some 800,000+ registered gamers and new functionality is being added regularly.

Almost two years ago, I decided to become proficient with the R20 platform for my RPG go-to, for games of any type, and it's worked out really well.  Alright, that's the quick pitch - carry on.  Cheers

I'm needlessly excited about this.
Cassius and Clay, from Adam Reed (Archer) and Megan Ganz (Modern Family, Community), has been added to FXX’s 2016 slate, where it will be paired with Archer.

Hey, +Cam Banks, any chance I can bribe you to give some insight into the Sentinels Comics rpg? On the scale of existing super hero rpgs is it closer to the Marvel cortex game or Mutants and Masterminds?

I was skeptical at first but the more I see of this, the more excited I get.  Manu Bennet as Allanon is going to be awesome.  I so hope that I am not disappointed....

I humbly ask that the state of Louisiana is not judged too harshly for our governor. Jindal has not spoken for the vast majority of the state for a long time....

I keep wishing that Jindal would get laryngitis and not be able to talk for the rest of the campaign.....
