Beast Kingdom: A Katanas and Kimonos Game


Beast Kingdom is a spin-off game of our bestselling Katanas and Kimonos game line (available HERE). While it’s compatible with KnK, it’s a standalone product and you don’t need to buy anything else to enjoy it.

The rules take inspiration from John Harper’s classic, Lasers and Feelings, but they offer additional mechanics, such as enemy abilities, variable dice, and a push-your-luck mechanism.

In Beast Kingdom you play an anthropomorphic creature adventuring in a land based on, but distinct from, feudal Japan. Will you make your way through the ranks of a samurai clan, or will you strike out on your own? With support for both solo or group play, the possibilities are endless.

Character generation takes a few seconds, and the included adventure generator and encounter builders reduce GM prep time to nil. Beast Kingdom also introduces a variant character advancement option, including a novel way of gaining experience. Your chances of learning a valuable life lesson increase proportionately with the Exhaustion you’ve taken in a given scene.

This file is in black and white with minimal art to make it printer-friendly.

UPDATE: We've had a lot of support for this title, so I was able to update it with four extra pages of new character abilities, NPCs, and artwork!

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.
