Children of the Storm


Children of the Storm is an introductory scenario for the Instruments of the Chrysanthemum Throne Roleplaying Game.  This is a complete, stand-alone, scenario set in mythical Japan - a world where monsters and creatures of legend exist alongside people, during the Heian era (794-1185).   All the rules necessary to run the game are included with this scenario. 

The players take the role of a small group of children who are given an important task on behalf of their village and entrusted with Tsukumogami (sentient objects) to help them accomplish it.  Against the backdrop of a raging storm, the children must contend with both supernatural and physical challenges if they are to save their village as the New Year begins.

Four pre-generated primary characters are provided, along with four pre-generated Tsukumogami; cantankerous secondary characters who may boss the children around should they become too reliant on their power.  Complete rules for resolving all the Tasks described this scenario are also included, along with a summary for the GM to aid facilitation.

Children of the Storm aims to evoke a largely whimsical experience (children having fantastical adventures at a time of celebration).  The threats are mischievous, rather than deadly and as such this game may work well with a younger group, or with those who are young-at-heart.

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.
