Kamigakari: God Hunters is an action-packed Japanese RPG about everyday people imbued with shards of godhood. As dark gods encroach on our world, these innocents must become God Hunters and protect the thinning borders of the supernatural world! Will you become a magician and discover the Transcendent Promise? Will you defend your hometown with a heart full of burning justice and a jump-kick that pierces the heavens? Will you travel the world as a passing Godslayer, helping those you meet along the way? Or will your very soul burn away in the pursuit of power, transforming you into a new dark god? This world cries out for heroes! What kind will you be?

Fight Epic Supernatural Battles!

The enigmatic Mononoke and malevolent Aramitama await your challenge! Unravel their machinations in the real world, then enter the Spirit World for the final showdown!

Godly Power Deserves Godly Weapons!

With the Arms System, you can upgrade and customize your weapons endlessly! Turn that prop katana into a blade that rivals Masamune! Kit out your cell phone to cast earth-shattering spells! Or blast your enemies to bits with good old-fashioned firepower!

Control Your Roll!

Use the Dice Control System to save yourself from bad rolls, but use it sparingly! Do you want to be sure you'll spot the critical clue in an investigation? Or do you want to finish off the final enemy with your ultimate attack?

I’ve been reading my copy of Kamigakari and I noticed that some talents (like healing and magic damage rank) but I cannot find a description of what that entails.

In healing it says (heal with rank 1 magic)

What does this mean? Does it mean to roll one Xd6 or what? I'm probably missing, but the help would be welcomed.

Unfortunately, due to some non-rona health issues our team are experiencing, there has been no progress regarding the print-on-demand edition. I'm hesitant to even *think* about the offset print version until the pandemic is over, if I'm being honest.

So there was some stuff on Reddit a year or two back about Amy running off with $50,000 which, while technically legal, seems a tad sketch. Along with that, there's 23 comments here, but only 6 reviews, all rather high, but no text reviews of it here, or to be found elsewhere on the internet. I'm intrigued by the art and such, but a tad hesitant to actually, you know, throw any money at this.

Clarification would be nice on what all of that was about.

Yeah, I may as well explain that. I can't speak to the lack of reviews, other than the fact that I didn't specifically solicit any.
As for the events of last year. Our original partner for the Kamigakari offset print run, Kraken Print, ran out of money and made themselves scarce. This was a Problem because I had paid them in full in advance, expecting a mid-2019 print date. So they got a severe chunk of the Kickstarter budget.
Thinking of everything over and above our initial budget as surplus rather than a buffer, I foolishly spent the remaining Kickstarter money, so when Kraken disappeared, the majority of my budget went with it. It's been a lot of work digging out of that hole, and I had a lot of help from people way more talented than me, but I'm glad to say all of that's in the past.

Alright! Thanks for the clarification. Didn’t mean to point fingers, I’d just been doing Research online and felt like I wasn’t getting the full story from either side.

Is it only me that has trouble reading this on anything other than a computer/laptop? Is there going to be a mobile version created please? On my iPad it takes at least 5 seconds to display a new page.

Also why do the colour graphics at the start of the pdf not match my Japanese version? The book has a lightened area behind the glowing white text, so that it’s not as glaring?!

We've had no comments of anyone having trouble with it. That said, RPG PDFs are designed for computer/laptop. I can think of only a couple products that have ever had mobile versions created. It certainly is not the norm.

I also agree that this is a pdf that is difficult to view on an iPad Pro. It takes several seconds to render each page. Could the file be optimized for use on other devices?

Fantasy Flight Games had the same issue with Dark Heresy when it first came out, but they released optimized versions that worked much better in the end on all devices.

Now that the comment has been made, I would like to put my voice out there requesting a more optimized version of the PDF. 1 of the 2 five star reviews is mine but I struggled to read this on my IPad Pro. I had to read most of it at my desktop as my older laptop struggled with it as well.

I've had similar issues when I thought to test the PDF on my own tablet. We'll see into further optimization to ensure it loads more conveniently, and I'll test it myself to be sure. The testing platform will thus be a Galaxy Tab from a few years ago, so if it works on that, it should be good to work on anything!

That said, the key phrase is "see into." This isn't a commitment to getting it working. But we'll try.

Thanks. I had tech help (ie my kids) play around with the original file. They were able to create a file that although three times the size, loaded far faster. Unfortunately I have no idea what they did, and whether alterations to the original document may solve things more effectively (rather than playing around with the pdf document after its been created).

Just checking, but to me of equal importance was getting the English edition to match the Japanese one as close as possible. Did my comments regarding the lightened background in the front colour plates make sense?

It did, yes. Regrettably, we tried less intense glows and it didn't really work out. I know it's not great, but...

Hey guy's first we love the game and I've just started prepping for our first game this weekend. We have just started making character's and while it didn't hurt our character creation it was a burning question. What is the difference between an occultist and adept? also is there an errata link there is a couple of things missing off the character sheet's that is on the premade sheets, that are not on the make your on pc sheets.

Sorry for the sorta-inappropriate post, but would it be possible to get a review copy of this for Otaku USA Magazine? I've reviewed a bunch of Japanese RPGs for it over the years, and would love to do a writeup of Kamigakari, it looks great! (I don't know how I missed the Kickstarter.) My email is (my first name) at mockman dot the-most-obvious-URL-ending. Thanks!!

Very cool for first printing of a translation.

I don't know where to inform you of the errata. All the warriors should have 4 agility. Two of the same name samples have the same type.

Another problem in the translation process that I see, is you went back and forth from invocations and conjuring. It changes all over the place I'm afraid.

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.
