Not in the phase of organizing anything yet, just wanted to see if people are generally interested in playing it or if running it online is a better idea.
I bought the beginner box a few weeks ago and the books shortly after and would at some point like to try it out (either as a DM or player).
The setting is basically feudal fantasy Japan, players are running Samurai of various clans. The rules are crunchy but there is no need to get into everything as once and get rid of stuff that doesn’t work.
The game itself is less focused on combat and more on role play (intrigues, code of bushido and how it conflicts with the characters passions, goals and attitudes).
Combat is kinda deadly and is kinda similar to DnD’s theater of mind play style (optional but meh grid rules, movement measured in relative distance) and separate duel rules where the first one to lose one’s temper presents an opening.
Personally I’ve been DMing DnD 5e for 9 months (Phandelver into Storm Kings Thunder) so I could run the game but I’m also not opposed to other people taking the lead. Personally I’d like to avoid the common Anime tropes (senpai, desu, sensei/chan, owo) and just keep it strictly in a Samurai setting.
