Thank you for your patience with lateness of this update. Several important things have been happening in the background which we can now openly discuss.
First, I would like to officially announce the Era of the Ninja: Role-playing Game.
This has been a project in the works for some time as progress on the Kami and Mahou expansion increased. There were many ideas that we wanted to include in the board game, but felt that it would be difficult to include. As the number of these ideas increased, we decided to change direction and implement them into a role-playing system.
The Era of the Ninja RPG is a game of high fantasy set in time of medieval Japan. The gods in the heavens have settled in their own area and have given control of the created lands to the creature known as man. What will man do with this newfound power and how will the spirits, demons, and other beings react?
The game currently boasts 25 playable character races and 12 classes.
Each race is based on mythical beings from Japanese mythology, and each class is dependent on the culture. Players can be humans, kappa, oni, kitsune, tanuki, or other various races. Players can be samurai warriors, mystical monks, mighty spell-wielding shugenja, among other classes.
Players are not limited to defeating evil lords, and are free to adventure about the lands and realms or settle down and try forming a clan of their own.
These are just some of the highlights of the game and will be discussed in more detail in future posts.
If you are interested in trying out the game, please check us out at Origins and Gencon this year.
Next, I would like to thank artist Nate Flamm for his work on the weapons. Check out the EotN: Kami and Mahou website for the images. These are the images to be included in the upcoming expansion.
Lastly, we will be returning to our weekly post format.
We will be changing the format a little and will continue to introduce new deities from the expansion, but will also start to discuss other concepts such as elements from the RPG, upcoming conventions, and more.
