A tabletop role-playing game of samurai, spirits, and Japanese folklore.
Travel the lands of Nippon resolving the conflicts of tumultuous times—in an age strained by the collision of spirit and mortal cultures. Humanity is learning that they share their world with creatures and beings beyond their understanding. How will you approach the conflicts ahead? Will you use the passionate speech of diplomats, the honed blades of warriors, or the mystical rituals of sorcerers? Perhaps you will use a combination of all three? Or through diligent investigation and careful application of knowledge, will you find a solution that’s uniquely your own?
An original system
Mysteries of the Yokai is built with a unique rules system that rewards players for choosing their own way to resolve conflicts. Are you the type to talk your way out of a fight? Would you stake the fate of the world on a game of Shogi? Or are you the old fashioned type who lets the katana do the talking? You can easily adjudicate all of these types of battles with our morale-based conflict system.
Sophisticated character creation
Flexible cooperative conflict system
Outsmart tricky Tanuki, battle man-eating Oni and exorcise vengeful spirits. Players take on the role of wandering heroes who posses the ability to deal with the supernatural. These adventurers seek to protect humans and spirits both from each other and from themselves.
