Dragon Fighters: Advanced Musha Shugyo RPG Quickstart Guide


Dragon Fighters Logo

Ready for the evolution of Musha Shugyo RPG? Introducing Dragon Fighters

In Dragon Fighters – Advanced Musha Shugyo, you play the role of an extremely skilled martial artist travelling in a restless search to improve their fighting style and control over their inner energy… their Chi. After years of fights and gruelling training, you awoke your Dragon Chi, a legendary energy that only mythical heroes are known to have mastered in the past, such as saints, demigods, epic champions…

This is a story about your Musha Shugyō, the warrior's pilgrimage and about how you’ll use your spiritual energy and superior Martial Arts to change your life… or the world!

Dragon Fighters was published thanks to a successful Kickstarter Campaign. The game is full of Extra Modules, Dragon Games, and exclusive contents! 

Hack the Dragon, the first official supplement for Dragon Fighters, will be translated into English soon and is already available in Italian. It introduces new Game Modes, new Symbols, and new Optional Modules to expand and improve your game experience. 

The mechanics of Musha Shugyo RPG have been optimized and evolved thanks to years of playtests and feedback from our beloved supporters. The system has been expanded upon and made much more balanced while making it more exciting, too, thanks to the arrival of the "Dragon Chi" and many unpublished optional modules. Imagine the new Dragon Fighters as a real arcade console inside a board game! We have focused heavily on the flexibility and adaptability of the previous Musha Shugyō, which was able to create every imaginable action game style. For this reason, Dragon Fighters is a product fully backwards compatible with its predecessor. This means all the RPGs, expansion modules and components of the original Musha Shugyō will still be fully usable!

Dragon Fighters will give you, even more than the first Musha Shugyo, an unmistakable feeling of old-style electronic games, fighting games, and arcade rooms, in which many of us have spent the most exciting years of our youth. To do this, we have chosen young and talented illustrators such as Andrea Negroponte, Alex Irzaqi, Wu Jin Long Art, Tyger Lynn Art and Daniele Ciciriello, coordinated by the creative direction of Luca De Marini, author of the game and of the graphics that will enrich the product. To top it all off, you will enjoy a fantastic Original Soundtrack made entirely by the Italian composers from Sonor Village because we firmly believe that the ear, in addition to the eye and the mind, wants its part!

We will soon introduce to you a series of new expansion modules and Dragon Games, complete with Arcade and Story Modes, that will make you discover the potential of the Dragon Fighters system:

  • Dawn of Oblivion, in which you will play the role of a space pilot adrift in the universe, forced to face the threat of Cancer Beasts.
  • Steel Sun, where you can play the role of a samurai, ninja, or a master of martial arts as you face the threat of dark powers trying to seize feudal Japan. 
  • Mecha Romancer, an expansion module that will allow you to recreate any kind of Super Robot existing in popular Asian animation and comic books. 
  • And many others! 

For Mecha Romancer, in particular, we also involved Fabrizio De Fabritiis, Chiara Mognetti,  the Robabot Centurion team, and the Italian Guardians, two wonderful independent Italian comics. Their contributions will be a real flagship for Dragon Fighters!

Stay tuned, everyone and... Let's Fight! 


Dragon Fighters Quickstart

This Quickstart contains all the basic rules that allow you to play the Dragon Fighters basic game with no specific Game Mode. If you already play Musha Shugyo RPG, you’ll find a lot of essential changes in Experience, Symbols mechanics, Special Points, the Oracle, and so on in this Quickstart, too.

Dragon Fighters has been developed so that it can be played by just one person or by two or multiple players, according to the Mode of your choice. If played with many friends, Advanced Musha Shugyo can be used as a sort of board game, structured like a fighting tournament.

If you like this Quickstart, why don't you have a look at Hyper Armor, Advanced Roleplay and Deadly Weaponry, too? Also, please have a look at our Catalogue here

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.
