It was recently pointed out to me that third Eye Games (3EG) are offering the pdf corebook for Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade as a Pay-What-You-Want product for one week (Feb 1-Feb 7), this is a part of their yearly spotlight on The Ninja Crusade. Now I’m afraid I was a bit slow off the mark so if you are reading this as we post it you’ve only got a few days left. They have also promised to place other titles in the Wu Xing game line as PWYW offers later in the month, so if its your sort of thing then keep an eye out.
However if you are not already familiar with Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade Then I think you are in for a treat, and now is the chance to grab a great book at a bargain price. The game really captures the feel of the real ninja setting with its combat, morality and politics. The corebook provides everything you need to get started including a comprehensive guide to the Izou Empire and the machinations behind their Ninja Crusade, information on all the Empire’s major cities and landmarks, details on the various Ninja Clans and excellent guidance on creating your own ninja stories. The game mechanics are rich but simple and with no less than eleven fighting styles covered combat is a serious and intense affair.
I’m a big fan of 3EG, regular readers will have seen posts about their other games, Apocalypse Prevention Inc. and the excellent Part Time Gods, Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade is equally good and if you are thinking of trying something different you could do much worse.
Ia! F’tagn! Derek.
