The Grimoire will contain the first three editions of the game. Each edition comes with its own set of characters, crafted to encourage different styles of play.

Trouble Brewing ‌

Clocktower Classic

Trouble Brewing has a little bit of everything. Some characters passively receive information, some need to take action to learn who is who, while some characters simply want to bait the Demon into attacking them.

While it initially seems a relatively straightforward Demon hunt, evil has a number of dastardly misinformation tricks up their sleeves. The good team best question what they think they know in order to survive.

Trouble Brewing is recommended for players and Storytellers new to Blood on the Clocktower, or to social deception games in general.

Sects & Violets ‌

Maximum Information, Maximum Misinformation

Sects & Violets is the craziest of the 3 editions included in the base set. Good characters get amazing information each and every night.However, the evil team is extremely varied and threatening and can throw massive confusion into the mix. Characters change alignment. Players change characters. Even the evil team can lose track of who is who. This edition also features 'Madness', which throws all manner of spanners into the works.

Sects & Violets is recommended for players who want to do wild and unexpected things, pushing the limits of what can be achieved in a bluffing game.

Bad Moon Rising ‌

Great Risk, Greater Reward

Bad Moon Rising is a death extravaganza. Demons kill multiple times per night and Minions get in on the action too. Good players can take great risks to gain great information, but may accidentally kill their friends in the process. Luckily, there are many options to keep players alive long past their used-by-date. If the good team can not determine specifically which Minions and Demons are in play, their doom is all but certain.

Bad Moon Rising is recommended for players who are very proactive, dedicated to working as a team, and not afraid of dying.
