    You had me at, "The joy of travel." :D

      There's been two japanese RPGs translated so far (by the same guy) and it's so interesting to read them. Japan doesn't have our RPG histories going back to the 70s and so now that they are starting their own, they break lots of those conventions we're used to because they don't have that baggage.

      For instance, they don't call them tabletop RPGs, they call them tabletalk RPGs.

      I got my copy of Ryuutama on Drivethrurpg and the translator says he'll deduct the price from the hard copy when it's ready.

    Aww man, this sounds awesome. Now if only I had someone to play it with... ;_; If anybody knows any reliable ways to find local tabletop groups, that would be greatly appreciated.

      Maybe we can see about making this our 2nd monthly one-shot. :)

    Yeah, this seems like a really cool system. I remember seeing this on Kickstarter a while back but didn't fund it, so this makes me glad they got the funding and are publishing! Do you think this could be run as a sort of Studio Ghibli RPG?

      I don't think so. The system really is about travel.

      As far as I know Big Eyes, Small Mouth would be the system for you but I never read it.

        I have! BESM is alright, but kind of complex and generic for my tastes. Not that it doesn't have its appeal, I just prefer a slightly more focused game.

          Then you might like the other game translated by that guy Tenra Bansho Zero. It's the most focused game I know off, it's meant to finish a chronicle in 6 hours. Japanese people often have trouble scheduling themselves together and they want to make their shared time count.

          It's more suited to action-oriented anime style.

            Huh, I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the tip!

    This is really cool! Thank you for posting it. I'll have to look into it more and see if I can use it with my group.
