One more question, sorry. On page 154 it says "Sturdy Fist is also a Basic Jutsu and will roll Yang 2 + Fighting 3. She also gets +1 Fighting from her Assailant Gift since she is currently outnumbered (11 against 3). Rolling her 6 dice, she gets 2, 2, 4, 6, 7, 10 (3 successes). That is a success and means she gets to make an immediate close combat attack with a +2 bonus. Since that was successful, Ryan now rolls for his follow-up attack with Fighting 3 + Speed 4 + 1 for 8 dice total." Because her Sturdy Fist Jutsu worked, shouldn't that be 10 dice total?

Actually, yes and no. She should have 10 dice (fixing that now), but the Guards are Trained Guards, which do have Defense 6 (note there are Simple and Trained guard types).

In the future, questions like this are probably best directed to our G+ community: https://plus.google.com/communities/118083262044779835739

I'm sorry, I have another question. How does deflecting ranged attacks work? The paired absolute defense level 3 passive implies there is normally some sort of penalty to doing it, while the sharp passive splitting arrows implies firearms are somehow different from other ranged weapons. Meanwhile, the entry on the Imperial Battallion implies anyone can parry arrows with a Dynamic Action. What exactly are the rules on parrying ranged attacks?

PUBLISHER
The rules for parrying (Blocking) ranged attacks is that you need Splitting Arrows or Absolute Defense (or one of a few other jutsu) to do so. Otherwise, you'll need to Dodge (if it's within Close or Near Range) or Find Cover (for further distances).

Excuse me, but are martial art effects constant and passive when you are unarmed, or do you need to activate them like a Jutsu? The Dice mastery section shows someone rolling dice to activate Tiger Claws, but the martial arts section makes no mention of duration for virtually any of its abilities. When you take into account all the buffs in Way of the Warrior, it looks like an unarmed character could spend so much time activating buffs that they have no time left to attack. Do martial arts abilities consume Ki?
Customer avatar

PUBLISHER
Fighting Styles do not require any kind of activation and do not consume Ki, unless otherwise stated.

In the Battle Example, Rika uses Tiger's Claws, which is a Basic Jutsu from the Way of Inked Skin on page 127, and is pretty different from the Tiger Claws Technique under Tiger Style on page 71. It's an obvious confusion due to the similarities of the names.

How does damage work are there pain modifiers when you take certain amount of damage.

Sorry for the delay in responding. Characters can take either physical or mental damage, but that damage can be converted into Conditions (like Pain, Poison, Embarrassed, Dazed, etc.) to keep them from hitting their thresholds for possible death.

No worries looked quick start guide and google page. it looks like conditions can be applied with weapons based on boost also. It does not look like health is very high in the game. Maybe 6 to 12. Saw some higher health but that looked like it was a squad. Plan on getting several copies core and the PDFs. Game looks good.

Back to boring old rounds, instead of the tick system? That's sad. Guess I'm out.

There's a lot more going on than just "Rounds", even more than 1st edition's tick system. I'd say give it a chance and see why we went with the new system. :)

How hard would it be to port "the nobleman's daughter" adventure over to second edition.

Not that difficult actually. We're working on doing the same, actually, it's just a process. :-)

Is it possible for you to add some version of shortened quick start rules and permission to translate them would be nice.
i am thinking about using your product to help grow the role playing community in my country by appealing to the children who grew up on anime and manga...
i have already began talks with the local role playing community and it seems so far like a good idea.
Also in your opinion what is the best way to attract new players to your product who have watched naruto and bleach but for them d&d is the lord of the rings movie and have no idea who Conan is...
In addition i would like to solicit from you a donation of a hard or soft cover book or 2 for the local community and children. If you decide that would intrest you i would be happy to give your contact info to our local non profit in charge of promoting role playing games in our country...

thanks in advance...

Loving the PDF. The story and setting is amazing, but for a first time roleplay group I'm having trouble coming up with a cool campaign (first time GM also). I'm sure we'll get used to it. Can't wait for those expansions and stuff, instabuy for me

So glad to here you're having fun with the campaign. There's a lot of plot and story ideas in the Ninja Stories chapter, but if that's not inspiring you, we are already hard at work for adventures for The Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition. Those will be out very soon! :-)

I'm really trying to fix the review that I left on this product. It appears that the downloaded file I received was corrupted and that was what caused the issues. After contacting support they were able to send me a good copy of the product that has no issues and is GREAT! I've contacted support to see if I can edit my review to reflect my much-improved experience and am waiting to hear back from them. So far the book is a great read and I'm excited to play it!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
