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.
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.
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!
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
