Quick20 Asiatic Adventures

ZIP File

Monkey II, son of Sun, leaps a dozen yards up to the treetops, knocking down a dozen imperial soldiers as he goes. Hitomi draws her katana, seeing an opportunity to defend her lord - to succeed here where she failed in life. She's devoted her ghostly existence to Arya, exile Naga King and sorcerer of the Black Mandala.

Me? I can see General Lao commanding his thousand troops and make for him, striding through the bamboo shadows. Ignore me; I'm just the ninja.

Asiatic Adventures (AA) is a genre supplement for Quick20 that focuses on heroic action gaming in settings that reflect Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian cultures. AA chooses fantasy over history and brevity over nit-picking detail, drawing from literature, action cinema and sheer invention to give gamers access to fun, fast-paced game sessions. It also assumes that you'll fill in the details with your own research and imagination. We trust players and GMs to make AA their own.

Here's what you get from this 10 page supplement:
  • Races: Play a descendant of the dragons, an elemental spirit person, a wily animal trickster, a heroic ghost or an earthly demon!
  • Heroic Action: Use Contests of Will to dominate an enemy, or Heroic Timing to simulate the tense sword duels of samurai fiction. Or cut through legions of spear-carrying Bannermen in the finest traditions of wuxia mass combat. These rules even include modified movement systems for the amazing leaps and floating steps of cinema and legend.
  • Energetic Powers: Qi, ki or prana, internal energy is a feature of Asian fantasy. This section expands on Quick20's class abilities to allow for "internal strength."
  • The Way: Special rules let you dedicate your character to a code to reap the rewards -- and bear the burdens.

Important! This is not a stand-alone product. It requires Quick20 to play. However -- you can buy Quick20 and AA together in the Quick 20 Asiatic Adventures Play Kit at over 20% off the price of either product alone!

Original electronic
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.
