Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

"It is Japan 1572, the end of the Seguko period of history. Like many transitions of power the country is filled with strife, warring factions pulling any able bodied men into war, leaving villages populated by only women, children and old men. Now a small, nearly indefensible village is living under the horror of a dangerous threat that casts its long shadow over the village. Without a defender, its people are almost certainly doomed.

Enter Kagematsu, a wayward ronin fleeing a troubled past. Here is a defender for the village, if only he can be swayed from his meandering course. So it is that several young women conspire among themselves to win his affections and steer him to their cause..."

Kagematsu is a fast paced story game for 3-6 players with quick scenes that should play out in one session. The game includes the 40 page game book with an expanded appendix and a gorgeous tri-fold Kagematsu screen.

More Information Edit | History

Nominated for the Diana Jones award in 2010. Here is the committee's appraisal:

"With Kagematsu, creator published roleplaying games boldly continue their advance into uncharted territory. Set in Japan, the game flips genders on the players, casting men as village women whose efforts to romance the wandering ronin Kagematsu are judged by the woman playing him. The text is lucid and elegant. The game plays to a natural conclusion in four or five hours - resolving the fates of the women, Kagematsu, and the village - with no need to force things along to finish on schedule. And play is lush, anxious, and partakes of great dramatic energy from its tight mechanics and device of gender-reversal."
