Struggles of the heart and soul!
The life of a warrior without fear!

Jump into your favorite Akira Kurosawa film and explore the dangerous and honorable lives of the Samurai. A game about honor, duty, and dueling, Chambara focuses on being light, fast, and lethal: like the swing of a blade!”

    • Sorry for the late reply. I was on the bus all day until just now.

      Duels are the game’s catch-all term for checks. You roll a numbee of d10 equal to one of your stats (Dedication, Elegance, or one other that I can’t remember at this moment). 7-10 is a sucess. Against the environment or non-serious threats, you need just 1 or 2 sucesses. For serious people, they have stats and you roll against each other.

      Duels to the Death is combat. It’s rather lethal: More sucesses lives, less sucesses dies, ties mean you kill each other. Duels to the Death are serious affairs.

      You have a few ways to help yourself out like favors of the heavens (points used for re-rolls), pull of samsara’s wheel (10s explode, passive), and sticking to bushido (8-10 explode, active: requires your actions to be in-line with a particular tenets you chose at chargen).

      You also have to make sure you don’t lose too much face (On) or else you have to commit seppuku.

      That’s a good overview, I think. Chargen is made quick as is the gameplay. The intent is to get this running the day of with no prep.

      Anything else you want to know?
