    Legend of the Five Rings vs. Qin: The Warring States vs. Weapons of the Gods vs. ...

    Given my recently resurfaced interest in L5R, I'd like to know how the various Asian-themed RPGs out there compare to each other. For example, I've already got Qin: The Warring States (the first printing by 7eme Cercle), though I haven't really gotten around to reading it. What would I miss out...

    Weapons of the Gods Community!

    Hey there, I'm looking to try to get all of the regulars from the old Eos Press WotG forums together on a new version of my WotG Fansite. I have quite a bit of the content from the old forums that I plan on putting up (with all the appropriate credits of course) and am hoping that the site will...

    [WotG] Rules questions

    Hi. I have a few questions about Weapons of the Gods. i) What does the chi aura do? ii) What's the archetype skill for? iii) When a character looses chi breath because of injuries, who decides what color is lost? The attacker? The victim? Chance?

    [WotG] Adventures ?

    Hi, all. I'm planning on trying Weapon of the Gods for a one-shot. Are there adventures for this game on the net, that I could use?

    Looking for Wuxia-style system

    Hey all, I'm looking for a game that can pull off fast, flashy martial arts without too many rules. I'm currently looking into Qin or Weapon of the Gods as I've heard a lot of good things concerning both games, but open to any suggestions. I'm a bit hesitant on Weapon of the Gods because I...

    [Weapons of the Gods] Help me find the social mechanics

    After reading this thread about games with good social mechanics, I noticed how many people felt that Weapons of the Gods really shines in this area. I remember reading through the book and liking the river mechanic and other things, but I did not remember anything about the social mechanics...

    [WotG] Soul Calibur with Weapons of the Gods

    I was just playing Soul Edge IV recently. When i tought, wow, this could be played with Weapons of the Gods, even Soul Calibur and Sould Edge look a bit like Haven Crystal and Tiger Soul, and the characters could easily be seen as Wulin heroes, not only from China but from all over the world...

    [Weapon ofthe Gods] Help me grok WOTG

    So I finally picked up Weapons of the Gods (insert Dr. Moran fanboyisms here :D), and I'm trying to get a good understanding of it. Some questions I've had so far. 1. Lore sheets. So paying the destiny to buy a lore sheet gives you all the knowledge in the sheet, but no mechanical game...

    EOS Rising

    Hi everybody Just came back from a week long EOS meeting, and let me report things are alive and well. Some stuff, like the website, I know is runing a bit slower than what we would hope, but the forums are coming back, and later on a new website, take into account that we are pretty much...

    [Teach Me] Weapons of the Gods

    So I've been in the mood for a wuxia action game lately and I've heard good things about Weapons of the Gods. However, skimming the rulebook got me nowhere and even thoroughly reading it through didn't help much. Now I found an excellent example of combat on the (now vanished) Eos website and...

    [sell me on] WotG

    Weapon of the Gods, sell me on it. The standard of comparison is 4e - meaning: How well balanced are the presented options in WotG? How tactically engaging the game is? The above in particular with team-play or is combat more of actual solo fights happening concurrently? Both of the above in...

    Qin: The Warring States vs. Weapons of the Gods

    Which one is kinder to time-constrained GMs (and players)? Which one offers the best setting information for the undereducated in the wuxia genre? Which is better at enabling PCs to do epic stuff? Not OVER 9000 epic, but leading armies, ruling, and generally leaving your mark on the world...

    let's chat about [Weapons of the Gods]

    with the Eos Press forums down, my outlet for idle WotG chit-chat is gone, so let's have one here. Disorienting criticals annoy me. 90% of custom styles seem to have disorient as a default critical, and who can blame them; it's far and away the most powerful critical effect available. it's not...

    It's new year's eve, and the streets of Inauspicious Calligraphy are thronged with people as the district has turned out to celebrate the turning of the Year of the Ox to the Year of the Tiger. The streets are a bewlidering melee of sights, sounds and smells. Music, live and recorded, comes...

    Is EOS Press dead?

    It's been nearly two years since it was announced that EOS Press was going to put out a new edition of Nobilis. It's been nearly ten months since they updated their website. We know that Brad Elliott has left to pursue a teaching career, so nobody is left to be their public face. Is there any...

    Which East Asian-Themed Game For Me?

    So, I'm a student of East Asian language and culture - taking my Bachelor in Japanese, with a minor in Chinese. This means that I'm exposed to East Asia daily, so you might have picked up the fact that I'm interested in the place. I'm lacking any books whatsoever that deal with this, though, and...

    [Interest] Weapons of the Gods

    WotG is something of an unscratched itch for me, and due to real life constraints getting an on-going campaign seems increasingly unlikely, so here I am. This is more a general call for interest than specific recruitment. I can GM, although I'm temperamentally more of a player so I'd be more...
