☯ ISSTH Chapter 822 ☯

When I got up early the other day, it was to play a wuxia roleplaying game. Not an online game, but a traditional pen-and-paper RPG (I joined via skype). The games system is called Wandering Heroes of Ogre Gate, and the source book will be released later this summer. My character’s martial name is “Hidden Arrow,” based off of one of my favorite Chinese phrases, “a spear in the open is easy to evade, but an arrow shot from hiding is hard to dodge.” My character specializes in disguises, craftiness, and poisons. It was fun, and I’d definitely recommend the game to anyone who’s a fan of traditional RPGs. You can read the summary of the game session here if you’re interested.

  1. Not sure if you know DB — but there’s another Wuxia PnP system out there — Weapons of the Gods — based on the chinese comic of the same name, I never got a chance to play it, but it had rules for everything from miridian-charts for doctoring to kung fu ranging from “I kick fast” to “I shatter souls with the sound of my bell.”

    Will be interesting to WHoOG compares :3

  2. As soon as I heard Wuxia RPG, I knew it would be Bedrock Games. Haha.
    That looks fun, I’d probably play it once it came out. Currently, I’m only playing D&D 3.5 and DM-ing for Paranoia, an older Cold War era game about a dystopian society run by a malfunctioning computer AI, which is where I get my profile picture.

  3. Looks really interesting, and I look forward to the release! Hopefully my Pathfinder campaign will be done by then.

    Thumbs up on the needle throwing!!
