USAGI YOJIMBO Tabletop Role-Playing Game — Second Edition
Stan Sakai's fantastic vision of 17th-century Japan returns to your tabletop, Powered by the Apocalypse

All or nothing. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, September 15 2019 11:00 AM CDT.

Image

Stan Sakai's long running, award-winning comic series, Usagi Yojimbo, tells the story of Miyamoto Usagi, a swordsrabbit with the heart of a hero, as he wanders a fantastic version of 17th-century Japan. Now, Sakai's Japan and its cast of anthropomorphic characters come to life in stories you write yourself. Explore immense castles and humble villages; meet bounty-hunters and crime bosses; battle ninja spies and scheming lords; and encounter monsters from beyond the natural world.

Image

Take the role of a fearless samurai, a crafty ninja, a wise priest, or other adventurer in fantasy Japan. Immerse yourself in a richly-detailed world with valiant Usagi, sly Kitsune, gruff Gennosuke, clever Ishida, and other heroes from the comics. Face your challenges head-on, and be a hero!

Usagi Yojimbo RPG: Second Edition has been updated and revised with material from over thirty years of award-winning Usagi comics and the help of Stan Sakai. We've overhauled the game to be easier to learn and to be faster to play. You'll be rolling two six-sided dice, trying to score high. If you fall short of your goal, you may have to make a hard bargain to get what you want.

Image

A unique system of story, support, and setbacks lets players work together to solve their problems. Move the plot forward and earn story points to improve later rolls... which earns you support points to help your friends. You're all in this together.

We've been working for years to bring Usagi to a new generation of gamers, and we always aim high. Your august support will feed our fires!

Image

Risks and challenges
We produced our first USAGI role-playing game back in 2005. We were big fans of the comic then, and we're still fans today. And just like back in 2005, we are working directly and under contract with Stan Sakai. We're excited for this opportunity to bring a new, modern game to your table.

I wonder what the price of the game (printed version) will be as an add-on?

I'll probably go with the print only level.

I do wish they provided more information. Will it just be a book only? Do dice come with it? How about figures, or other accessories?

Sanguine Productions LLC wrote:We won't know what the final cost will be until we go to press. Any printers' bids that we receive would expire in 30 days. To save costs, we'll do smaller print runs in individual countries to avoid duties and taxes, and that varies all over the world.

The only thing I can say for sure is that the total cost for digital+print will be equal to or less than the "print only" option.

I decided to up my pledge even if I don't need my level's perks. :lol:

Do you guys play these games or is it your completist's mentality that gets you to purchase them? I got caught up in the hype and bought the TMNT/Usagi board game even though I'll never play it. :lol:

I am caught up in the completist mentality, although I'd play it if my wife would. :roll:

Oh man, this has me excited---don't know if any of my RPG group would be up for something so specific, though. We tend to make our own mayhem.

The $9,000 goal has been met.

That leaves the $30,000 goal and 27 days to go.

Only 69 hours to go, and it's at $15,000.

The last goal for COLOR is set for $30,000, so unless they can raise another $15,000 in less than 3 days the book will remain B&W.
