Kumite is a collection of rules to help GMs and players run martial arts inspired action adventures. This game was inspired by movies like Karate Kid (1984), Big Trouble in Little China (1986) and Bloodsport (1988), as well as other martial arts RPGs and video games.

Although planned for use with ICRPG, the ideas and adventures here can be easily adapted to other games, including OSR titles.

This is version 2.0 of Kumite! In this version you will find:

  • Setting-specific Rules for Martial Arts Action
  • Character creation for powerful martial artists
  • Rules for the use of Chi and 20 martial arts techniques
  • Stats for thugs, warriors, elite warriors, enemy bosses, and mystics, all of them customizable with exclusive special abilities
  • 100 LOOT table for martial arts action
  • 3 adventure lay outs that form a continuous mini-campaign, expanded and updated from previous versions

As with all products in this series, this title is offered as PWYW and will receive constant support and update, with new ideas and adventure seeds being added regularly - buyers will be notified when a new version becomes available, so if you believe this product to be worth of your support, please return to this page and contribute in the future.

Hey guys, author here.

Because I’m an idiot, I forgot to tick the “pay what you want” box and this was listed as a paid product. It’s NOT supposed to be paid. Sorry for any inconveniences that may have caused. It’s corrected now.

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.
