From the back cover

TENRA BANSHO ZERO: TALES OF HEAVEN AND EARTH

In the Hour of the Ox, a shinobi clan attacked a village under the protection of your regent. No one was left alive. The regent raised her hand and four emerged from the shadows to hunt down the clan and sever the hand that controls them:

  • "Ten Blade" Saburo, a cynical but skilled samurai of great renown. The magical red soulgems implanted all over his body allow him to gain incredible muscle, speed and clarity in battle.
  • Princess Rasen the armour-rider, the thirteen-year-old daughter of the regent. She pilots Red Hare, a 3-meter-tall mecha killing machine fueled by her innocence.
  • Sha-Lazt the Broken Cloud, a persecuted Phoenix Order monk of the indigenous spiritual oni race, whose hands are the ultimate tools of both healing and destruction.
  • Emerald Light, a geisha of high breeding and talent, who can enter the dreams of others. Her secret: She is actually a kugutsu mannequin, a doll carved from a sacred tree and given life.

Tenra Bansho Zero is a story-focused role-playing game of epic drama and insane action, set in the world of Tenra: A rich world of high magic and technology, of the ancient side by side with the futuristic. A world of blood and steel, mired in an endless feudal war. There are over a dozen playable character types in the game, including mecha-pilot armour riders, soulgem-studded samurai, onmyoji taoist sorcerers, Buddhist monks of three different orders, skilled shinobi, kijin cyborgs, peerless killing robots, secretive Shinto agents, mysterious ayakashi monsters and more!

Tenra Bansho Zero is easy to learn: With some friends, some six-sided dice and a drive for drama, you'll be engaged in a system that not only rewards dramatic role-playing with character power-ups, but also follows the dramatic structure of an anime series or kabuki play! It is also a fast-paced game: In just one session you can tell a complete story with your friends from start to finish.

Designed and illustrated by master Japanese game designer and manga artist Junichi Inoue, with illustrations by professional manga artists Hayami Rasenjin, Hiroyuki Ishida, and more! Tenra Bansho Zero is fully translated into English and features over 300 unique illustrations and 30 full color plates designed to visually bring new players into the unique world of Tenra. As the easy-to-learn rules are illustrated through several manga, and the rules feature tons of advice and references for players, you will be playing this game with your friends in no time!

EXPERIENCE THE ROLE-PLAYING GAME THAT STARTED A REVOLUTION IN JAPAN, NOW FINALLY AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH!
