RONIN SAGA

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Selected Option:

The empire was shattered by the dragon that sleeps under the sea.
Its people are isolated, living on small islands, preyed upon by infernal monsters.
Anyone who volunteers to help liberate these islands will be offered a place among the nobility at the end of the crusade!

Ronin Saga is a classless and level-less RPG with OSR roots, inspired by Japanese folklore. Players take the role of volunteers trying to reunite the Empire, one island at a time. Easy to learn for the players and referees only have to design one island at a time, as one island equals one adventure.

How does it play?

Roll a d20, add an ability score and meet or beat the difficulty to succeed.

What's inside?

Play a human, a half-oni, a monkey or a kitsune. Built-up your character as you wish each time you bring back an island to the Empire's fold: learn elemental summons, blessings, shadow spells or get infected by a parasite!

Referees will find tools to build their islands, factions, a dueling system, a collection of creatures and also multiple tables to make their empire unique.

Who's behind this?

Kobayashi, the guy behind best-selling rpgs like the Black Sword Hack and Extinction, Mylydy a lead story artist at Pixar and Edgarra who did the layout on Fléaux!

Do all Ronin start out with a suit of armor? Is there any reason you'd choose Ashigaru Armor over Samurai armor?

No, characters don't start with a suit of armor. Samurai armors are made to order and are only available to the nobility so getting one should be pretty hard for the player characters.

Good idea, I'll include a video in the game's description. The Previews are activated on my end but the DTRPG site does'nt seem to take this into account :(

I think this book should describe what it is to roll with advantage and to roll with disadvantage. Update needed!

a softcover yes, a hardcover might be more tricky, the premium color option will probably make it too expensive. But I'll look into it.

Game is pretty cool! Is there a limit to how often you can use a power or spell? I'm not able to find anything like that

Thank you! No limit, but you have to make a successful Sorcery roll to cast a spell.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
