Flashing Blades is a role-playing game published by Fantasy Games Unlimited in 1984.
Flashing Blades is a 17th-century swashbuckling system. PCs choose a character class (soldier, gentleman, rogue. etc.) and assign skill points to create characters. Gain and loss of social status is very important. The "Rogues, Gentlemen, Soldiers and Noblemen" book (48 pages) covers character creation, combat, and campaigns; a second book (16 pages) includes three miniscenarios. The game includes a GM's screen.
