Coming Soon for Kuro - Kuro Tensei

Post by Andrew » Thu Jul 16, 2015 2:36 pm

We're delighted to be able to show off the cover to the forthcoming, final installment in the Kuro saga: Kuro Tensei. Kurois our near-future game setting influenced by unremitting Japanese horror, part of our series of translated games that also includes Yggdrasill, Keltia and Qin.

Japan, 2047. A mysterious island has emerged from the depths of the Pacific. Accompanied by a supernatural Red Storm, the island appeared from beneath the waves to open the gate of Yomi-No-Kuni and unleash a tide of tainted creatures, vile Oni and insane Yokai too long locked away in the grey lands of death.

Caught up in the Red Storm, simple humans have discovered that they have a supernatural heritage and are descended from the Kami. While some refused their heritage, others have accepted their fate and chosen to die to fulfill their destinies.

From now on, the heroes of the Kuro saga are no longer ordinary individuals confronting the supernatural. True heroes, fighters charged with closing the gates of Yomi, armed with Ki swords, incantations or destructive o-fuda, they form the new army of the Emperor.

Kuro Tensei is the final part of the Kuro trilogy, and will be available to pre-order soon - keep an eye on the website for more information!

Wow. That was quicker than I expected.

How many pages is KT?

Will it be hardcover, given it sounded like it can almost be played as an alternative to straight Kuro?

It can be played as a different setting to Kuro,
but you still need the basic rules from the Kuro Rulebook.

Cool .

I had posted some of the errors and fixes that were given by the designers in a previous post.

I need to try and get the FAQs about the archetypes translated. Those were basically why did you design this archetype like this and do other archetypes exist questions.

Spidercat, Spidercat does what ever a Spidercat can.
He's a deadly yokai in Tensai you see.
Kills the PCs just like flies.
Look Out!
Here comes the Spidercat.

The images are from the manga and a video game that have him in them. The manga I mentioned already in detail in post on recommended inspiration for Kuro.

Yeah, I wondered if Gencon would result in no news on this for a while :(

Still no news? Its seems "coming soon" doesn't mean what it used to mean.
