An expansion for Dark Age: Bushido (available here)


弓術 Kyujutusu The Art Of Archery

Feudal combat engagement sometimes calls for patience and distance. Timing is key, as is knowing when and how to strike. A well-placed volley of arrows can be the pivotal moment in a battle, and the practitioner of Bushido may use this to their advantage.

This Expansion is provided to give even more flexibility to Character development, with four all new Vocational Axioms and a total of seventeen new Traits.

When the warrior wishes to defend their home, their land, their friends, or plainly their honour, sometimes the rules change. Sometimes the enemy needs to be kept at distance.

The Islands of Nippon have been home to expert archers since Neolithic times. Originally making the best of things with bone-tipped arrows and single pieces of curved wood, the Nihonjin evolved to use bows over two metres in height, firing arrows that could be up to one meter in length. In the hands of the Samurai class of warrior, the yumi (bow) was used to win wars and repel invasions from some of the fiercest fighting forces stalking the earth during feudal times.

The fundamental principle of kyujutsu is that of ‘seisha hitchu’ – ‘a true shot never misses’. By following the Shaho (the law of shooting), your arrow will find it’s mark.

Therefore keep your mind clear and embrace the state of fudoshin – to let go of ego, of doubt – to know everything is in accordance with how it should be. Then you will become one with your bow, and hit without hitting.

Product Information
File Size:
3.2 MB
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.
