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 traveling in a restless search to improve their fighting style and their control over their inner energy… their Chi. After years of fights and grueling training, you awoke your Dragon Chi, a legendary energy that only mythical heroes are known to have mastered in the pasts such as saints, demigods, epic champions…

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

We’ll publish Dragon Fighters thanks to a Kickstarter full of Extra Modules, Setting Packs, and exclusive contents that will be released only for you Backers on April 30, 2020! The Secrets of Chi, the first official supplement for Dragon Fighters, will be included in this Kickstarter too. The Secrets of Chi introduces new Game Modes, 13 new Symbols, and new Optional Modules to expand and improve your game experience. Here’s what you’ll find inside this amazing supplement!

The mechanics of Musha Shugyo RPG have been optimized thanks to the precious contributions of Alessandro Costella, a young and talented game designer. The system has been expanded upon, made much more balanced, while making it more exciting, too, thanks to the arrival of Dragon Chi and many unpublished optional modules. You can 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, too, Dragon Fighters is a product that is fully backward 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 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!

Thanks to this Kickstarter we will introduce to you a series of new expansion modules and mini-RPGs 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, and the team of Robabot Centurion, 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, therefore, 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 and if you didn't buy MS yet, please support us!

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.
